Questions You May Have

What can be powder coated?

Almost any type of metal can be powder coated. From the heads of screws to street lights, metals of all sizes can be powder coated. Many non-metal materials can be powder coated as well, including glass bottles and ceramic materials.

What are the advantages of powder coating?

Powder coating offers substantial benefits over wet paint. Powder coating is more durable and resists corrosion. No solvents are used in powder coating (unlike liquid paint) so negligible amounts of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are released into the air. Unused or over-sprayed powder can be recovered, resulting in easier waste disposal.

What are the applications of powder coating?

What are the methods of restoring metal products?

Restoration : There are several options of stripping and surface conditioning for restoration of metal products, bringing the surface back to its original new metal surface. Once the metal has been restored to its new, near-white surface, the Extra-Guard protective coating is applied, followed by a topcoat colour of your choice. Standard stocking colors can be applied, or we can special order custom color matches to meet your specifications.
