Common Applications of Powder Coating
Updated: Dec 4, 2020
While powder coating has not always been as popular as it is now, it has been used to finish metal items since the 1950s. While many people assume the process of powder coating is only applied in a large-scale construction environment, its applications are far more widespread. Here are just some of the many sectors in which our powder coating can lengthen an items lifespan by providing an impressive finish:
Household and Office Items
If you have noticed that metal items around your house or office have gone years without damage to their exterior, it could be the result of powder coating. Toasters and kettles, filing cabinets and desk parts are often powder coated to help them avoid the damage caused by everyday use.
Any metal item designed to be outside must be able to withstand an onslaught of sun, rain, humidity and even the occasional snowfall. If items such as park benches, railings and even rubbish bins are easily damaged, then they will need to be constantly maintained and replaced, an extra cost not needed if the item is powder coated.
Machinery helps keep the world turning, and the need for constant upkeep of farming apparatus such as tractors and combine harvesters, industrial equipment and factory apparatus can be costly, powder coating ensures that these items, inside or outside can maintain a pristine and durable covering, helping businesses avoid downtime.
Another application that must withstand the elements of outdoors, road and directions signs are a prime example of the importance of a durable coated item. For road signs to be effective, they mustn’t be easily damaged by corrosion, rusting and chipping, which could affect their readability and ultimately be dangerous for drivers.
