Powder coating in advertising

There is a lot to think about when it comes to creating the perfect advertisements. The audience; the location; the content. The last thing on your mind is something like the powder coating needed. Yet, it is probably one of the most important things to consider if you want to get the maximum return on your investment.

Why do you need powder coating?

Powder coating is used in advertising to protect billboards, signs, and logos from the fading effects of the sun, rusting effects of the wind and rain, and dirtying effects of city grime. This ensures they will be long lasting and you get the most value for your money out of your investment.

Saving you money

Purchasing shop signage can be expensive depending on the design, size, and materials used. But, it is not uncommon for it to cost well over £1,000. Leaving uncoated signage where it is at risk from the harmful effects of the weather will bring your sign’s lifespan down dramatically. You might find that, in a few years, you must spend the same large sum replacing it. With powder coating, however, you make your sign weatherproof and durable.

The powder coating is resistant to the effects of UV light that would eventually cause colours to fade. It is waterproof and prevents rusting and corrosion. On top of that, it is easy to clean, meaning it can stay looking as good as new for as long as you need it to.


Another reason powder coatings are so popular in advertisements is because they add to the design of your advert. Powder coatings come in a huge variety of colours which you can tailor your specific needs through colour matching.

You can also combine the finished signage with other materials, such as acrylic and vinyl, to create an even more interesting look, and add halo lights for an elegant touch. The use isn’t just limited to the outdoors. Powder coated lettering and logos, for example, look modern and professional inside offices.


All businesses need to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and powder coating helps you do this. Powder coating helps keep the amount of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) down in your covering. These chemicals are toxic, and many of them are considered to be carcinogenic if you are exposed often enough. Powder coating gives you a professional, durable finish while also lowering the level of harmful compounds you use.

As well as this, powder coated products last longer than non-coated ones and can be reused. This means you are responsible for less waste heading into the environment just by investing in a powder coating. To clean it, there are no nasty chemicals involved. All you need to do is wipe your powder-coated item down with water and sometimes a little soap to remove marks.
