What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a method of painting metal parts or products that differs greatly from most conventional painting methods. Instead of spraying paint onto a surface, powder coating involves the process of spraying powder of a certain colour onto the surface. This powder holds an electrical charge, causing it to adhere to the surface. This powder is then baked onto the surface for a durable and long-lasting finish.

3 Reasons to Choose Powder-Coated Equipment

Powder-coated equipment offers the following benefits for various operations:

1. Enhanced Durability

A powder-coated finish is resistant to chipping, fading, scratches, and other common forms of wear. This ensures that your hand truck, cart, ladder, or other equipment have the durability required to handle harsh work environments while maintaining their appearance and integrity. Powder-coated finishes are also highly resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a great choice for equipment that will be used indoors and outside.

2. Reduced Cleaning Requirements

Powder-coated equipment is extremely easy to clean and maintain over time when compared to conventional paint-based finishes, enabling workers to spend less time on equipment care and more time on other tasks. While paint-based finishes and powder-coated finishes will accumulate dirt, dust, and debris over time, the latter can often be effectively cleaned with a dry towel or damp cloth while the former will typically require some form of cleaning product to produce similar results.

3. Cost Savings Over Time

Equipment costs can add up quickly, especially if you are replacing or repairing your equipment more often than you would like to be. With powder-coated equipment, you are getting a durable and low-maintenance solution that offers an extended usable life when compared to other finishes. This allows you to reduce your equipment costs over time without compromising efficiency or equipment safety.
