What is Powder Coating?

RAW STEEL

Metal surfaces scratch, dent, tarnish and rust over time, and rust will eat through your product and cause customers to choose a product that lasts longer.

 

Metal is coated in order to slow down this process. 

PAINT VS POWDER COATING

Paint is a common coating people apply to metal, however paint is not durable, and will peel and your metal will rust very quickly compared to the highly sustainable powder coating process.

PROCESS

After receiving the metal product from SAMSON Metal Products or other metal fabrication facility, the parts enter the pretreatment stage of our powder coating conveyer procedure. The substrate is washed by heated water pressure. This part of the process is necessary to eliminate dirt, processing oil, and corrosion. This ensures the long lasting quality of the powder coated finish.

Then the parts are ready for the electrostatic process of applying the powder coating via our automated spray booth. The spray machine is set for the proper air, spray pattern and electrical charge. The spray booth is supervised by personnel with hand sprayers as well to ensure complete coverage and thickness of the coating. The spray is applied with a filtered air supply to eliminate debris.

 

After the parts leave the spraying unit, they travel down the conveyor line to a giant oven heated to the correct temperature and time, that depends on the mass and powder type.

After leaving the oven, the parts keep traveling down the conveyer allowing them to cool before the shipping department handles them for packing. 

 

FINISHES

Available finishes come in a basic matte, to a high gloss sheen.  The oven time and temperature are adjusted to achieve your desired look.

Textures 

Your projects may require a particular thickness of metal, but there are several options including fine grain, course grain vein, crocodile patterns, and palpable textures. The more course of the texture that you are wanting, the thicker the final metal will be. 

Texture

Fine = Thin

Color

Whether you want a traditional neutral color like white, grey, tan or beige, or bright bold colors, the color options are endless. There are industry standard colors that are always available in neutral and primary colors, but other shades can be special ordered for your projects.
