Powder Coating and Design

Updated: May 3

In design and aesthetics, there's a constant quest for the perfect combination of beauty and durability. A solution that is favoured in this pursuit is powder coating. This innovative finishing technique has transformed the appearance of products and improved their longevity. In this blog post we’ll explore the world of powder coating in design and how we can provide this service here at UK Powder Coating Services.


Powder coating is a dry finishing process that involves applying a finely ground powder, typically composed of resin and pigment particles, onto a surface. This application is done electrostatically, which means the powder particles are charged to adhere to the surface of the object. The item is then baked in an oven, allowing the powder to melt and form a smooth, even, and durable coating. The result is a flawless finish with an array of colour options and finishes to choose from. This versatility makes powder coating a perfect choice for designers looking to achieve specific looks, from sleek and glossy to textured and matte. The consistency and quality of the finish are unparalleled, without the drips or sags that can often occur with traditional liquid paint.


While aesthetics are a crucial aspect of design, durability is equally important, especially for products that face daily wear and tear. Powder coating excels in providing a resilient and long-lasting protective layer. This durability makes it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. Powder coating is frequently used in the furniture industry to protect and beautify metal and wooden furniture pieces. Whether it’s an outdoor patio set that must withstand the elements or an indoor chair that needs to resist scratches and scuffs, powder coating ensures that your furniture not only looks good but also stands the test of time.


Architects and designers have embraced powder coating for enhancing architectural aspects like railings and columns. These elements endure various weather conditions while maintaining their original appeal, and powder coating ensures they stay vibrant and corrosion-free even after years of exposure.

Powder coating is also a staple in the automotive industry, where it not only enhances the visual appeal of vehicles but also protects against corrosion, UV rays, and harsh weather conditions. From wheels to engine components, the automotive design world has found countless applications for this durable finish.

Like many of us, the design industry is increasingly conscious of its environmental footprint. Powder coating aligns with this concern by producing minimal waste and emitting almost no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful to the environment.
