Q. Why should I powder coat instead of wet spray painting?

A. Powder coating is a high-quality finish which protects the roughest, toughest machinery. It provides a more durable finish than wet spray painting can offer, while still providing an attractive, aesthetic finish. Powder coating forms an extremely durable layer that protects your products from various types of damage such as corrosion, flaking, scratching, colour fading due to sun damage and other extreme weather conditions. In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages. Compared to wet spray painting, powder coating is better for the planet and better for your production turnover times.
