Hands down, pow­der coat­ing is one of the eas­i­est, most cost ef­fec­tive and durable ways to add colour to metal com­po­nen­try that needs to take a beat­ing. Prac­ti­cally any metal can be pow­der coated, as long as it’s ca­pa­ble of with­stand­ing the 200-de­gree bak­ing process — so that cov­ers wheels, en­gine brack­ets and com­po­nents. Ap­plied elec­tro­stat­i­cally, coloured pow­der is baked to form a hard skin that is far more durable than con­ven­tional paints. The process is fast; the part is first sand blasted to re­move any coat­ings, grime, and other con­tam­i­nants, and as only one coat is re­quired, there is no muck­ing around build­ing up lay­ers. Gen­er­ally dry­ing time is down to a sim­ple 10-minute wait. Max from Ash­bur­ton Pow­der Coat­ing told us, “Un­like other meth­ods of paint­ing, pow­der coat­ing is a cost ef­fec­tive and fast way to add a durable layer of colour and pro­tec­tion to metal parts”. He con­tin­ued, “With such a fast process, your parts can be dropped off in the morn­ing and be back on the car by the af­ter­noon if re­quired.”
