Powder coating is the technique of applying a dry powder paint to a clean, bare metal surface.
The powder is applied using an electrostatic charge enabling the powder to adhere to the part.
After the powder has been applied, the part is placed into an oven to cure the powder to a gell that hardens into a tough, durable finish.
The basis of any good coating is preparation. The vast majority of powder coating failures can be traced back to lack of prearation.
The general preparation for most metal is a degreesing, whether it be thermal or chemical, sandblast, cleaning, and finally the coating.
