Powder coating

011

Background

Powder coating provides the most economical, long-lasting, and durable quality finishes available. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than most other commercial finishes.

Color & Texture

Color selection is virtually unlimited with high and low gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available.  Colors stay bright and vibrant longer, even after years in the sun and harsh conditions. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled finish designed for hiding surface imperfections. A wide array of specialty effects are easily accomplished which would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes.

Environmentally Friendly

Powder coating is a very environmentally friendly coating process. While liquid finishes contain solvents which have pollutants known a volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), powder coatings contain no solvents and release negligible amounts of VOC’s into the atmosphere.

Outgassing

When powder coating is applied to our products, we are able to minimize the outgassing which generally occurs and is known to lead to unsightly pinholes.  This is mainly due to Gupta’s advanced electrical melting techniques, metal cleanliness practice, and superior aluminum grain structure.

Durability

Powder coating is often regarded as one of the most durable finishes a metal component can have. Colors remain strong and true, even after years in the sun and elements, and are extremely chip resistant. Powder coating has become so chip resistant that many commercial road vehicles are now being done this way.

Summary

Powder coating provides excellent performance and aesthetics, while being good at resisting abrasion, acids, solvents, etc. The complete line of powder coatings come in wide variety of functional options, such as high temperature resistance, anti-graffiti, anti-gassing, chrome-look, low energy, and antimicrobial products, so you can deliver customized solutions across a broad range of applications.
