First used in the late 1960s, powder coating has quickly become one of the most popular alternatives to traditional paint coatings. This type of surface finishing uses a dry powder applied electrostatically as a coating. The part is then cured in an oven for a period of time at temperatures ranging from 380-425*F to form a solid, durable finish. Powder coating not only looks great, but it also lasts longer while providing protection from harmful corrosion. To further improve corrosion resistance for components exposed to the weather we can first apply a Zinc-Rich Base Coat primer before the final color, which offers nearly ten times the corrosion resistance of just a standard coat of powder.
