Powder coating is the preferred choice for finishing for manufacturers and consumers alike.

Along with its attractiveness, powder coating’s baked on finish offers several advantages over its competitors, including:

  • Harder product increases durability against nicks and scratches
  • High-quality finish maintains colour longer with less fading
  • Resistance to corrosion
  • More environmentally friendly

Powder coatings also don’t emit any VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

VOCs are by-products of a number of chemical compounds, including paints and other surface coating techniques, and are emitted as gases into the indoor and outdoor environment.

Powder coating produces less hazardous waste than liquid coatings, which makes it more sustainable and ecological sound.

 

How to Maintain Exterior Powder Coated Surfaces

The more value you attach to it, the more important it is to invest in regular maintenance efforts.

Maintaining the good looks of your powder coated products is just like caring for your car – and is a smart way to protect your investment.

Over time with exposure to the elements, powder coatings may show signs of weathering such as loss of gloss, chalking and slight color change.

A simple regular clean will minimize the effects of weathering and will remove dirt, grime and other build-up detrimental to all powder coatings.

 

WARNING

Avoid Harsh Chemical Cleaners. Powder coatings are damaged by harsh solvents. A number of commercial cleaning products can cause damage to these types of finishes.

Once the finish has become damaged, it is much more vulnerable to fading, staining and failure of the finish itself.

When harsh chemical cleaners are used on powder coated surfaces, the life expectancy of the finish can reasonably be halved.

 

Repair Minor Damage

Scratches and scrapes in the enamel topcoat can be dealt with using the following steps by either a home owner or a professional paint contractor:

  1. Use a medium grade of sandpaper to gently rough up the damaged surface as well as the area immediately surrounding it. To minimize scuffing to undamaged areas, place the sandpaper on a narrow surface, such as the end of a pencil. This will help to control where you are sanding on the surface of the finish. Make sure all traces of rust are removed.
  2. Apply an exterior metal primer to the area. Make sure all exposed metal areas are primed and sealed.

Once the metal primer has thoroughly dried and set, paint the primed area with an exterior enamel paint to match the rest of the topcoat.
