Powder coating plays an everyday role in the appliances we use on a daily basis. The biggest role it plays is in our home. If we start with our kitchen, powder coatings are prominent in the majority of the appliances we use — everything from a dishwasher to garbage disposal to the gas and electric ranges.

If we turn the corner of our house we will see powder coating in bathroom fixtures, shutters, and louvers. Outside we are met with lawnmowers, barbecue grills, and patio furniture.

Walking a block or two, we see our local playground, all equipment with powder coating in the form of bicycles and playground equipment.

Powder coating is a dry finishing process in which a steady stream of thermoplastic or thermoset powder material, rather than a fluid suspension, is applied to a surface. After it is applied to a surface it is melted and then allowed to dry, hardening into a protective coating. The powder is applied and covered through electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) to an electrically grounded metal substrate.

Increasingly, several original manufacturers are choosing to finish their equipment or construction equipment with powder coating.

Powder coating services are appropriate for a variety of materials, including metals, plastics, glass, and medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Powder coating produces both functional and decorative surface coatings in a broad range of colors, styles, finishes, and textures. They can be used on many appliances.
