With over 4,000 square feet of paint and powder coating production space, and hundreds of paint and powder coats colors available, at Prototek, we can handle high customer demands with quick turnaround.
Wet paint has been used for years as a conventional finishing coat. A majority of our sheet metal fabrication procedures make use of a pump, spray, or other form of pressurized applicant to evenly deliver paint over the metal surface.
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder.
Unlike conventional wet paint, 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.
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.
