What is Powder Coating


What is Powder Coating

When you are considering working with an Iron Works company, you may be also wondering just what exactly powder coating is and how it can help you. Powder coating, provided by Northern Virginia-based, Virginia Iron Gates, Railings & Welding is a process where the surface is treated with a durable finish that is longer-lasting than a traditional liquid paint product.

Simply put, Virginia Iron Gates, Railings & Welding will apply a powder-like substance to the substrate and then work to heat the powder to its melting point. This will ultimately liquefy and then flow and form a hard finish that will be resistant to future scratching, nicks, peeling, as well as UV rays and the effects that dust can have on a finish over time

Powder coatings are used in a variety of consumer goods, and is the choice technology for many companies who provide items to the public like appliances, lawn furniture, tools, as well as cars and motorcycles

There are many benefits to powder coating, and Virginia Iron Gates, Railings & Welding is happy to promote:

  • A hard, durable finish that will provide a higher quality image and appearance to any consumer product production.
  • Powder coating gives better impact resistance, increased flexibility, and protection against corrosion, something liquid paints cannot do.
  • Products treated with powder coating will resist cracking, peeling, and will handle better during everyday activity.
  • Provides opportunity for cost saving; will reduce labor costs, energy costs, waste disposal, as well as improve efficiencies.
