What is Powder Coating?

We are often asked, “what is powder coating?” The simple answers is powder coating is a process that applies an extremely durable plastic coating to metal, steel, concrete, plastic, and other materials using an electromagnetic charge, compressed air, and heat. The powder is a dry compound composed of polymer resin, pigments, leveling agents, curatives, and other flow modifiers. After being cured with heat, the powder’s molecular structure forms chemical bonds, which result in a hard surface that is both durable and visually appealing.
