Businesses in Chichester can benefit from powder coating. Powder coating is a highly effective alternative to liquid paint, providing versatile and durable finishes for aluminium, steel and other metallic surfaces, fabrications, parts and products.
Powder coating is different to liquid paint, because it is a dry coating process. You apply it using a spray gun with an electrostatic charge.
This charges the powder particles negatively, causing them to stick to the surface, which is positively charged.
Applying a dry powder coating gives the surface complete, comprehensive coverage, and this includes sharp edges, angles and corners.
Once the dry powder coat is applied, the coated part then goes into an oven for baking.
This is the curing process for powder coating. It causes the powder particles to melt and fuse together, forming a hard, uniform outer shell.
After the coated part is dry, it is ready for shipping, distribution or application.
As a specialist finishing process, powder coating has a wide variety of uses for different businesses in Chichester.
Powder coating is extremely effective in protecting outdoor metal surfaces and products, such as architectural features, exterior furniture and agricultural machinery.

Powder coating is hardwearing and attractive. It provides an even finish with a tough, uniform outer shell. Powdercoated surfaces are more resistant to wear and tear, including scratching, chipping and fading..
It’s quick to apply, with a fast finishing time. Once the dry powder is applied, it goes straight into the oven for curing. This is a streamlined and accelerated finishing process. It is faster than applying liquid paint finishes.
Any powder you don’t use, or you overspray, you can easily re-use. This makes powder it an economical option, with very little waste.
Powder coating is also more environmentally friendly than liquid paint applications, because it is solvent-free. It contains virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful pollutants. This also makes powder coating easier and safer to transport and dispose of.
