Powder coating is a method of applying a decorative and protective finish to almost any type of metal. The powder consists of a mixture of finely-ground particles of pigment and resin that is electrostatically sprayed onto the metal surface. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded metal and fuse into a smooth coating in a curing oven.
This process creates a finish that is uniform, durable, high quality, and attractive. Powder coating creates a long-lasting and color-durable finish that is resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing. It is available in a wide array of flat, satin, gloss, high gloss, metallic, candies, clear, iridescent, fluorescent, wrinkle, hammer tone, and glitter finishes. Finishes can be smooth, wrinkled, matte, and rough textures.
Powder coating metal helps protect the environment. Liquid finishes contain solvents that release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can pollute the environment. Powder coating, on the other hand, releases little or no VOCs into the atmosphere. Finishers do not need to purchase and maintain expensive pollution control equipment, which saves money and helps companies comply with regulations issued by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Powder coating is used in over 10 percent of industrial finishing applications in North America, including appliances, automotive parts, building materials, lighting fixtures, electrical components, farm equipment, athletic equipment, furniture, strollers, cribs, toys, lawn mowers, snow blowers, and other products.
Many portable garages are constructed with steel frames that have a powder-coated finish. A portable shelter with a powder-coated finish is a durable, long-lasting solution to your storage needs. Whether you need a place to store your car, truck, boat, or farm equipment, a portable storage building is the best choice if you don’t have room in a traditional garage.
