When it comes to painting, whether it’s painting a home’s exterior or the interior of an office, it typically requires getting the right type of paint, the right accessories to apply the paint and a bit of time. However, when it comes to painting metal items, the standard method of painting doesn’t always work very well. While there are paints that are created to adhere to metal surfaces, there are other ways to make the painting process of metal surfaces much easier and more permanent. Such is the case with Custom Wytelyne Powder Coating.
In this process, paint is applied in a different fashion than it is in other applications. Rather than the paint being a suspension base, with powder coating, the paint is a dry powder that is applied to a particular surface. Typically the powder is dispensed around the metal surface that is being coated. Once the powder is suspended in air, a sharp electrical charge is sent through the item that is being painted. This charge attracts the powder and the powder then the bonds to the metal surface. This is called electrostatic power coating and it is extremely effective when it comes to painting metal pieces with a particular finish.
However, the powder coating process is only half complete by this time. After the dry powder has been electrostatically bonded with the metal, it undergoes a curing process where extreme amounts of heat allow the powder to form a bonded skin around the metal surface. The benefits of this curing process is that it allows the dry powder to bond with the metal. What this means is that, unlike traditionally painted metal surfaces, there is no cracking or chipping paint.
If you’re looking to create a product or you want to add a finish to a metal surface, powder coating can give you the best and most durable finish. This type of procedure can allow a person to create vivid colors on metal surfaces that aren’t possible with traditional methods of painting. Whether it’s the dynamic look of a powder coated surface or it’s the durability of the painted finish, powder coating is the best option.
