Information Regarding the Powder Coating Process

Though people come across it every day, many don’t know what powder coating is. Calgary Powder Coatings Inc., the region’s leader in prompt, affordable powder coating services, wants you to know that powder coating is a method of applying decorative and protective finishes to a wide range of products and materials. The powder is a mixture of finely ground pigment and plastic. Once blended together, this mixture is applied to a surface where it attaches electrostatically until heated and fused into a uniform coating in a curing oven.

We offer 300 stocking colors as well as sandblasting and stripping. Whether your need is functional or decorative, contact Calgary Powder Coatings today!

Powder Coating FAQs

Calgary Powder Coatings knows you may still have questions about powder coating and its many uses. Read a few frequently asked questions below for more information!

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.
