It looks like paint but it acts like armor, states the Powder Coating Institute (PCI) of this surfacing technique. Powder coating is a highly durable, decorative and long lasting finish applied to products of nearly every sort. It can come in virtually any color or finish, matte or smooth, is rust-free, scratch resistant and ecologically friendly.
Outdoor barbeques, swing sets, patio furniture and garden equipment are just a few examples of products that are powder coated. Though it appears painted on, it is actually a dry finishing process. Electrostatically charged particles of pulverized pigment and resin are sprayed on to the surfaces of items that have been electrically grounded, thereby attracting the dry charged particles. Items are then placed in a curing oven where the powder coating melts and fuses to the surface. Not only is the process practically pollution free, but there is also very little waste as the dry overspray can be recovered.
Resistant to chipping, and fading, colors of a powder coated item will remain true for many years. High gloss and low gloss finishes, even metallic and clear finishes, make it an ideal choice for stadium chairs, railings and structural enforcements, tools, engine parts, golf clubs, carts, ski poles, binding computer cases, farm equipment, exercise equipment, store racks, baby strollers, car parts, motorcycle frames and countless other products.
