We pride ourselves on offering only the best powder coating service using the best tools and machinery available.
What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a dry finish method of painting. The powder is applied on metals using a process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) with a powder coating gun. After the metal has been sprayed, it is put in the oven to allow the powder to fuse with the metal.
While powder coating is applied mainly on steel objects, it can also be used on some types of plastics and medium-density fibreboard (MDF).
The powder coating equipment our specialists use is the best on the market, so we never let our clients down. Our specialists have extensive knowledge of not only the equipment but the metals, plastics, and MDFs used by our clients.
What Metals Can Be Powder Coated
The fine powder used in a metal powder coating process is electrostatically charged. This is what attracts the powder to the metal surfaces before the curing process. If the metal can’t hold an electrostatic charge, the powder won’t be able to attach itself to the surface, and it won’t be able to be powder coated. Apart from that, the metal should withstand high-temperature levels since high heat is involved during the curing process. Below are some of the metals that are good candidates for powder coating service:
- Electroplated steel
- Mild steel
- Galvanised steel
- Stainless steel
- Steel alloys

Why Choose Powder Coating?
Powder coating is more durable.
Powder coating provides consumers with one of the most economical, reliable and most colour-durable quality finishes available on most types of metal. Powder-coated surfaces are more resistant to scratches and fading, making the colours stay bright and vibrant longer. For example, powder coating rims can protect them from environmental factors when driving.
Powder coating is cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
The powder coating process is eco-friendly. One of the most significant benefits of powder coating is that it does not contain solvents; thus, minimal Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are dispersed into the environment. Not only does it not harm the environment, but it also protects your balance sheet. Powder coating pricing is cost-effective, because of the technological advanced equipment used in this process. Instead of multiple coats of paint overtime to preserve the look, just one powder coat lasts a long time, even in harsh outdoor applications.
Powder coating has a faster processing time.
The powder coating process requires a short amount of time, unlike those that use spray paint stove as it has no solvent and no drying period needed. Instead, powder-coated materials can go directly into the oven, saving you time. For example, powder coating aluminum rims are quicker than having them painted, which can be finished in as fast as 20 minutes.
