Powder Coating & Sandblasting

COLORS
We have a wide variety of stock colors and textures to choose from, most at no extra charge.

PRE-TREATMENT
Items to be powder coated are first sandblasted. Sandblasting cleans and removes mill scale and welding slag, while etching the steel. Our process includes an air dryer and oil separators to ensure a clean surface for the powder to adhere to.

APPLICATION OF POWDER
Powder coating is a dry finishing process. The powder is finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the item to be powder coated.

CURING PROCESS
Once powder has been applied, the item is then placed in curing oven. When brought to temperature, the powder melts into a gel state and fuses into a solid coating.

FINISHED PRODUCT
Looks like paint but much more durable. It's tough, looks great, and lasts a long time. Powder coating is a superior finish that's found on hundreds of products you come in contact with everyday.

We can accommodate large items up to 30' long. We specialize in high quality custom coatings and prompt turn around.
