Did you know that powder coating is highly resistant to weathering and direct exposure to UV light? Traditional paints and stains can fade quickly when exposed to the elements and direct sunlight because they don’t have the strong chemical bonds which are formed in the curing stage of powder coating. By comparison, powder coating is much stronger than paint because it forms strong bonds right down to the molecular level. So, not only does it maintain its color better over time, but it also keeps its durability.
Powder coating protects against corrosion, rust, and many other problems that can develop from regular exposure to the elements. Whether you’re thinking of getting a clear protective coating for your car rims or a color coating for the body of your ATV: powder coating will keep your items looking like new all the time.
Powder coating is also great for items like lawn furniture, yard fixtures, and other equipment that might be left exposed to the outdoors for an extended period of time. This is because powder coating your outdoor furniture, fixtures, and equipment won’t just make it look better for longer: powder coating will also give them a protective coating which will increase their durability, extending their use and lifespan.
Not only is powder coating more resistant to the elements than traditional coating products, but it is also more environmentally friendly. Here at Full Blown Coatings, we avoid using volatile organic compounds and other chemical solvents which are necessary to make and process things like paint. We do this both for the health of our employees as well as our concern for the environment. We are also able to salvage some of the over-spray from the coating process for use in future projects. So, powder coating isn’t only a cost effective means to protect metal parts from the environment, it is also a way to help promote a better environment too!
