Powder Coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. 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 applied electrostatically and is then cured at temperatures ranging from 350°F to 450°F in order to allow the powder to melt and form a cohesive bond. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer which is used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Due to its heat resistance it is used on car engines among many other metals which produce a high heat. Powder coating is primarily used for the coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminum extrusions, drum hardware, and automobile and bicycle parts, but we can also powder coat items which will not melt in the ovens such as GLASS.
Powder coating is free of Volatile Organic Compounds out-gassing into the environment making a much safer impact on the environment than liquid paints. The over spray can be collected and reused or easily disposed of. Powder coating is an environmentally friendly processes that delivers a uniform coating which creates a nice aesthetic appearance while not sacrificing durability. Powder Coating meets all of the rigorous Environmental standards and helps us here at Leon’s Powder Coating do our part to take care of Earth.
Shot Blasting is the process whereby rust, scale, and paint is removed from the surface of a steel profile using abrasive shot flung at the profile by high speed turbines. We currently utilize the Ocean Blaster. The Ocean Blaster is the world’s most compact, lowest overall height fully integrated shot blast machine. The Ocean BLASTER will clean all steel profiles up to 40" tall and 20" wide.
We utilize the Highest Quality Powders and latest technology to ensure a long-lasting finish which is resistant to chipping, fading, and rusting for years. The Powder coating Process is an Eco-Friendly Solution to metal finishes.
