WHAT IS POWDER COATING?
Powder coating is a surface coating process that, unlike liquid paint, is applied through electrically charging powder particles to a metal substrate like aluminum, steel or iron. Once adhered to the surface, the object is then baked (cured) in an oven at around 400 degrees. The process is superior for items like auto and motorcycle parts as well as new metal fabrication like gates, railings, and other restoration projects.
WHY POWDER COAT INSTEAD OF PAINT?

WHAT ITEMS CAN BE POWDER COATED?
WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL TURNAROUND TIME?
Several factors can effect the schedule of a project such as powder availability and current work load but we are typically able to complete most jobs in 3 to 5 days.
SOME AREAS OF MY PART NEED TO REMAIN FREE OF POWDER COATING. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
Many automotive and motorcycle parts have areas that should not be coated due to threading. We will mask off and plug those places prior to the coating process. If your project requires that any other non-typical areas remain free of powder, please let us know so that we can be sure to mask those parts as well.
CAN YOU POWDER COAT OVER BODY FILLERS LIKE BONDO?
No, powder coating will not stick to regular auto body fillers like Bondo.
IS POWDER COATING ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY?
Liquid finishes contain solvents, which have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOC's). Powder coating doesn't contain solvents and has very little, if any, VOC's that are released into the atmosphere. Environmentally-friendly powder coating also produces less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings.
DO YOU OFFER CLEAR POWDER COATING?
We offer clear powder coating in finish levels ranging from Matte to 103% Gloss, the highest available in the industry. A clear powder coat can be applied alone or to enhance the look and durability of your chosen colored powder.
