Answering Your Questions About Our Custom Coating Services
Our commitment to quality means we maintain an exceptional understanding of our services. We are happy to address common questions associated with our metal coating process, including:
How Long Will Powder Coat Last?
Powder coat is often more durable than baked-on coatings, lasting up to 20 years under regular use. It offers better protection against rust and corrosion and resists scratching, chipping, and chemical solvents.
What Can and Can’t Be Powder Coated?
Powder coating is best for parts made of an electrically conductive material that can withstand the 400-degree baking process. Industries and applications that require powder coating include automobiles, furniture, the military, and appliances.
Can You Powder Coat Over Existing Powder Coat?
The short answer is no. Although powder coating is pretty determined not to come off once applied, we would have to remove the existing coat to use a new one.
How is Powder Coating Removed?
Before curing, the powder coat will brush off. After curing, it takes sandblasting, grinding, or other mechanical means to remove it.
