The Difference Between Powder Coating and Ceramic Coating

Not all coatings are created equal. Though ceramic coating and powder coating may look similar, they are not the same.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is used on parts that need protection, but will not be exposed to excess amounts of heat for long periods of time. This coating is harder than paint and available in over 10,000 colors, textures and sheens. It is often used on automotive frames, wheels, lawn furniture and architectural elements like fences.

Ceramic Coating

Ceramic coating is a high-solid paint used on metal parts that are subjected to temperatures higher than 300 degrees for long periods of time. The coating was originally developed for the aerospace industry. The spectrum of colors is considerably less than powder coating. Ceramic coating is corrosion, chip, and heat resistant. It is used on parts that are exposed to extremely high temperatures like: exhaust headers, mufflers, and intake manifolds. Click here to learn more.
