Want a clean, durable look to your rims? Maybe you want to change the look of your exhaust pipe? Powder coating is definitely the newest, sturdiest product on the market for just about all types of metal!
How Powder Coating Works
Powder coating is based on polymer resin systems, combined with curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives. A process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) is used to achieve the application of the powder coating to a metal substrate. This method uses a spray gun, which applies an electrostatic charge to the powder particles, which are then attracted to the grounded part. After application of the powder coating, the parts enter a curing oven where, with the addition of heat, the coating chemically reacts to produce long molecular chains, resulting in high cross-link density. These molecular chains are very resistant to breakdown.
Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on countless products you come in contact with each day. Powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household items you depend on daily. It offers a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing an attractive finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading and other wear issues. It’s tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time. In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages.
