Powder Coating Services

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint, which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating finishes are applied electrostatically then cured under heat or with an ultraviolet light. The powder may be either a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

Powder coating finishes are mainly used for metals, such as household appliances, aluminum extrusions, drum hardware, automobile, motorcycle and bicycle parts. Advanced technologies now allow other materials like plastics, composites, carbon fiber and MDF (medium density fiberboard), to be powder coated using different methods that require less heat and time.

Whether you seek bold and eye-catching shades or subtle and elegant tones, powder coating offers an extensive palette to suit any design preference or project requirement.

Types of Powder Coating Finishes

Ameriblasts categorizes Powder coatings as either thermosets or thermoplastics.

Thermoplastic Powder Coating Finishes: This finish becomes liquid and very soft when heated, eliminating chemical bonding. When using this process, the powder coating is reversible and reusable. It is a thicker and more durable finish compared to thermoset coatings. It can be used on a variety of materials including metal, auto parts, refrigerators and much more.

Thermoset Powder Coating Finishes: Vastly different to thermoplastic finish, thermoset powder coating does form a chemical bond once cured, making it impossible to recycle. It is suitable for high heat areas because the bonds prevent the finish from melting. This is a much cheaper option.

Dry Metal Application Process

See our three step process by clicking on the steps below

The first stage is to put the item into our cleaning station, which specializes in stripping oils, dirt, grease and other contaminants that could negatively affect adhesion of the powder coat finish.

Once the parts are properly cleaned, they’re transported to the painting booth. The booth holds two skilled coating specialists who work side by side to powder coat the grounded parts

After the finish has been applied, the parts are ready to be cured. While the product cures in the dry off oven the finish hardens and sets into a durable and visually appealing protective coating.
