Powder coating requires less energy and emits few, if any, volatile organic compounds and hazardous air pollutants, which eliminates the need for expensive pollution control equipment. Powder over-spray can be recovered or reused. Powder coating also costs less to apply than liquid paint and we pass those savings along to our customers.
In addition to durability (research shows powder coating lasts about eight years vs. wet coating’s five years), the turnaround time for powder coating is much faster than with wet coatings. It is straightforward process. The surface is sandblasted to ensure it’s clean and free of grease, dust, dirt and rust. Then we spray the powder with a gun and put the item in the curing oven. It’s fired, usually for less than one hour, allowed to cool and shipped.
If a customer needs something coated quickly, we can ship it within hours of receiving it if we use powder. Paint can take two days to dry, especially when it’s humid.
Drips, runs and sags are virtually impossible when applying powder coatings. Each worker inspects his own work. Our rejection rate is less than 1 percent. The key is a clean shop.
Another key to success is a dedicated team of 13 full-time workers and two part-time workers. Sandblasting, wet paint, powder and non-skid coatings available. Our 32 foot oven enables us to handle powder coating jobs of all sizes.
