What is powder coating?
Powder coating is what we at Sir Metalman apply to your metal piece to give a professional quality finish. So-sort of like paint but better! Powder coating is low in toxicity and has low flammability. The “powder” is finely ground particles of pigment and resin. The powder is applied electrostatically to the metal. Kind of how static electricity attracts objects as if by magic? – it’s not of course, but science. The powder particles are charged, then sprayed towards the metal and deposit on the metal surface. The metal with powder is than “cured” or heated in an special oven.
Better for the environment! Tell me more!!
Powder coating contains NO solvents, therefore has negligible VOCs (Volatile organic compounds) and HAPs (hazardous air pollutants). The overspray can be retrieved and reused – recycles.
Why do you care?
Bottom line – the metal pieces that Sir Metalman creates for you via powder coat is a vibrant color, resistant to chemicals, corrosion and weather. Powder coating is safer and better for the environment (Sir Metalman really appreciates that it is Non Toxic) plus it lasts and looks fabulous!
