Wet paint has been used for years as the conventional finishing coat. A majority of our sheet metal fabrication procedures make use of a pump, spray, or another form of a pressurized applicant to evenly deliver the paint over the metal surface.
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 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.
With over 4,000 square feet of paint and powder coating production space, and hundreds of paint and powder coats colors available, at Prototek Manufacturing, we can handle high customer demands with quick turnaround.
Painting and powder coating adds additional chemical and weather protection for all types of materials.
Powder coating is not an option for any workpieces that cannot tolerate the heat required for curing.
