The maximum size that we can coat is 38 inches wide x 55 inches high x 18 feet long. The maximum part weight is 400 pounds.

In many cases, our turn-around is 3-4 days, depending on the selected colour and our schedule.

Powder coating is a paint application consisting of fine, dry powder pigment and resin. It is applied electro-statically to metal parts and heated to a temperature of approximately 400°F.

The powder reacts at this high temperature, resulting in a beautifully-smooth, highly-durable finish. Our complex process requires a phosphate wash, rinse, and dry-off before proceeding to the coating booth.

Powder coating has many advantages over liquid paint applications. This includes producing a more durable and corrosion-resistant finish.

Powder coating is also a more environmentally-friendly choice as it eliminates the need for an evaporating liquid paint carrier and cleaning solvents.

Powder coating material is free of both flammable and vapourizing components, so they do not pose a danger to us or to our environment.

In addition, with only a single application, powder coating finishes last much longer than liquid paint applications.

We are surrounded by powder coated parts. Patio furniture, store shelving, fencing, automobiles, light fixtures, appliances, and bridge materials are all items that are commonly powder coated to provide superior corrosion resistance and durability.

We provide metal stripping services by way of sandblasting or chemical stripping.

There are three main types of powder: polyester, epoxy and hybrids. Epoxy and hybrids are best for indoor applications because, while they provide a highly-durable, shiny finish, they eventually form a dull film in reaction to direct sunlight.

Polyester does not have this property and is well-suited for outdoor applications.

As a custom powder coater, we can match hundreds of colours using our large, in-stock selection of powders or by leveraging resources from our many powder suppliers.

With high, medium, and low gloss, metallic, textured and clear powders, there are a variety of powder coating finishes to meet every project need.

Please contact us to request colour samples.

We have “standard colours” which we run more frequently. These include black, white, grey and yellow – all in their high-gloss form – as well as semi-gloss white and semi-gloss black.

As we are an environmentally-friendly company, we only apply powder coatings to metal substrates.

However, we have the ability to apply a chrome-free conversion coating to aluminum substrates that gives a level of protection which equals or exceeds traditional chrome specifications.
