Powder Coating Services
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin.” The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer.
It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as “whiteware”, aluminium extrusions, and automobile and bicycle parts. Newer technologies allow other materials, such as MDF (medium-density fibreboard), to be powder coated using different methods.
Cerakote High Temperature Coatings are designed to improve the performance of exhaust systems. These coatings prevent corrosion, increase durability and provide thermal insulation. CerakoteTM exhaust coatings are available in a variety of colors and finishes ranging from semi-gloss Black Velvet to high gloss Stoplight Red. A line of Satin Metallic finishes are also available. All of these products can withstand temperatures in excess of 1200°F and select coatings can withstand temperatures higher than 1600°F.
Cerakote has a unique ceramic structure that out-performs any competitive coating and improves performance in both laboratory and real world settings. Cerakote coatings are formulated for specific applications and technical requirements. Current CerakoteTM product lines include coatings specifically for firearms, exhaust systems, pistons and high wear applications. In addition, CerakoteTM is available in a line of ceramic clear coats.
