COLOR CHARTS

 

 

There are many different types of powders used in the coating process, each with their own characteristics and applications, so making sure you have the right type of powder, and THEN choosing the color is very important for a successful application. Check out the different types of powder and the benefits they will bring to your project.

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?


A powder coated finish offers superior scratch, impact and chemical resistance. It can handle UV and salt conditions more readily than even today’s most sophisticated paints. The process is more economical and environmentally friendly. Unlike paints which rely heavily on solvents, powders reduce VOC emissions and the quick cure process allows fast turnaround that delivers a long lasting, durable product.




HOW BIG IS YOUR OVEN?


We are pleased to announce that we are now operating a 12' x 12' x 30' curing oven. If you have any questions about our capabilities, please don't hesitate to get in touch by calling us at (775) 331-3530.




WHAT ITEMS CAN BE POWDER COATED?


The short answer: anything metal. We specialize in the coating of new and bare steel/aluminum fabrications and components.




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. We do offer expedited service when necessary. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about your particular project's timeline.




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. Howver, if you do need to use body filler on an item that you plan to powder coat, we can recommend Hi-Temp Lab Metal. We can powder coat over weld sticks and brass fillers. If you do have body filler on any of your pieces it is important to let us know as it will be blasted off during prep.




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.
