There are two reasons why powder coating or painting aluminum extrusions can make a difference in your product design. The first is to control the appearance for color coordination, uniformity, or visual appeal. Secondly, to protect it. The type of coating selected depends upon a product's end-use and market preferences. In some instances, no coating is required. But when you have a requirement, we can apply powder coating or liquid painting to your aluminum extrusions.
Powder coating is one of the most prominent finishing methods. After the proper amount of powder is applied, the profile is baked in an oven where the powder particles are melted to a liquid state, fusing together to form a film covering the entire product.
Liquid coatings are fluid materials that, when applied to a surface, form an adhering film to protect and beautify the substrate.
Although there are significant differences between liquid and powder coatings, both perform two essential functions – cosmetic and protective. If your products require this type of finishing, give us a call today to see how we can assist you.
