Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Powder coating at Stratford Metal Fabrications is mainly used for our products that are going to be visible by the end user and require a durable corrosion resistant finish.
Technical bit: 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.
