Powder coating is a resilient, durable, versatile, and attractive finish to our products. Powder coatings prove to be a worthy match when compared to the durability of galvanized steel. It lasts for years under the most intense weather conditions and provides protection from wear, rust, weathering, and also fading when exposed to outdoor elements.
The beauty of powder coating is that it provides an even finish along the surface of the furniture without marks of running, dripping, or sagging. While galvanizing comes in metallic silver, powder coatings come in a wide variety of colors that matches your furniture setting with any colored theme. Another clear benefit of powder coating is how environmentally friendly the process is from preparation to completion.
Colors? Powder coating comes in many colors to give a stylish look to your outdoor furniture that matches your area. We must warn you to only choose white powder coating when you are willing to clean the surface regularly. There is nothing uglier than a dirty piece of design furniture, right?
How does it work? Powder coating is a technique of applying dry paint. The powdered paint is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the metal. The piece is then placed in an oven and the powder particles melt and coalesce to form a continuous film, that is durable and resistant to chips and corrosions.
Damage? Although powder coats create a “shell” or “skin” around the piece, it isn’t 100% damage proof. When abused or not properly maintained, the coating can get scratched, or even chip or crack. If these damages extend to the underlying metal, it is recommended to touch up the paint. For small damages, you can use a touch-up marker. For bigger damages, we have touch-up spray cans. Please advise Extremis for the proper use of this.
