Powder Coating Woodbridge
Abbey Protective Coatings is proud to offer powder coating in Woodbridge for all of your protective needs. Our powder coating service can be used for aluminum, stainless, and mild steel items, and is designed to keep your items looking pristine for a longer period of time than a coat of paint alone.
Powder coating will keep your items from corrosion and increase their longevity, protecting your investment of anything from lockers to deli cases.
What is the Powder Coating Process?
Painting metal items can make them look great, but everyone knows that traditional paint - even high-quality brands - don’t usually withstand the test of time. It’s easy for the paint to chip away or dull, and for the metal to start rusting or corroding, especially under inclement weather conditions.
The powder coating process uses a dry powder application and applies it to metal items that creates a hard finish. The finish is resistant to abrasions and corrosion, leaving your products protected for years.
Once the powder is applied, it is cured, which is what allows it to work so well and withstand both time and various conditions. At Abbey Protective Coatings, our curing process uses a monorail system that allows us to work on multiple items at once in our oven.
For all of your powder coating in Woodbridge needs, we do recommend both a powder primer for all external metal to extend the life expectancy and reduce corrosion. We can also offer a hot zinc spray beneath the powder-coated finish in order to improve life expectancy.
Why Choose Powder Coating?
Durability is the main reason most people choose powder coating over traditional paint jobs. As of today, it is used in over 15% of the industrial finishing market due to its quality and its ability to keep products looking clean, sharp, and sturdy for years.
Powder coatings come in a variety of custom colors, so you don’t have to limit yourself or your company vision when you’re trying to increase the durability of a particular metal item. If you’ve never used it before, you might be surprised at how many items you see each day have a powder-coated finish, from heavy-duty industrial machinery to household items you use every day.
So many elements can damage metal items or lead to corrosion, including:
Wear and tear/impact
Powder coating’s main claim to fame is that it helps to cut down on corrosion, but it also keeps your items looking great in the process. It won’t wear or fade over time like most paint does, even in harsh weather conditions or extreme sunlight. It’s also a positive environmental choice due to its low carbon footprint.
