Powder coating involves a lot more than putting a man in a booth with a spray gun. Both the quality of the result and the price you pay are directly dependent on the experience and operational protocols of the powder coater.
For example, if your powder coater has no reliable, repeatable, and easy way to measure coating thickness, then material costs can vary wildly and the protective quality of your powder coat may not be up to the standards you desire.
Is your powder coater ready for the next job? Or will they have to order new inventory to meet your needs. Time is money, and being unprepared or slow to get your parts into the paint both can cost dollars and aggravation.
Does your powder coater pre-clean for you? What about putting together sub-assemblies after the coating is complete?
As you can see, finding a powder coater that is ready to hit the ground running, using proven and well-designed workflows is more than a service provider, they can be a partner in the success of any project.
Our basic tips for finding the right powder coating provider are:
The most important tip for successful industrial powder coating is proper surface preparation. The surface must be thoroughly cleaned and pre-treated to remove any contaminants, such as dirt, rust, oil, or grease. This is essential to ensure that the coating adheres properly to the surface and lasts long. If the surface preparation is not done correctly, the coating may fail, and you may have to redo the entire process, resulting in a waste of time and resources.
So, make sure to choose a powder coating service that has expertise in surface preparation and uses the appropriate methods and materials to clean and treat the surface before applying the coating.
