Benefits of Powder Coating
If you are considering powder coating, there any many reasons and benefits as to why you should move forward with your project with Virginia Iron Gates, Railings & Welding, the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. leader in powder coating.
Powder coating is truly an incredible solution and alternative to traditional paint products. Some of the perks of doing powder coating on your consumer product are:
- Environmentally friendly solution – Traditional paint is made up of harmful solvents and heavy metals. These items are very toxic to the natural environment, not to mention your health. If the by-products from paint ooze into the soil, or find their way to the water table, toxic effects might be uncontrollable. Powder coating is an environmentally friendly alternative. It is powder and non-toxic. It can even be used on equipment provided to the food service industry!
- Strong and durable. Powder coating looks like paint, but it acts more like a suit of armor for your product. It is incredibly durable and will not nick, chip, scratch, or fade when exposed to UV rays like paint will.
- For use on a variety of products. Powder coating can be used on almost anything. It can coat ceramics, wood, plastic, iron or any conductive metal that has the ability to be electrostatically charged and treated to withstand the temperatures required to apply powder coating.
- Cost effective. Powder coating is cost effective to consumers and companies alike. Only one coat is required, unlike paint and overhead costs, labor, and waste disposal efforts are not as expensive as that which is typical with traditional paint products.
