Powder Coating Metal Gates
If not properly coated, it will only take a few years for any outside metal gates to succumb to rust and corrosion. At Quality Powder Coating we want to ensure that your metal railings stand the test of time. Powder coating protects the metal from harsh weather conditions such as rain, hail, and snow, while protecting the finish from rust, corrosion, scratches, chips, and fading. Our powder coating process has been tested by third-party sources and perfected to bring you the best powder coating on the market. Visit us today in Spanish Fork for your powder coated metal gates.
Sandblast to a “White Finish”: The process of sandblasting helps remove any traces of oil, paint, rust, corrosion, etc. from the metal gate and prepares the metal for the powder coating process.
Epoxy Primer: Adding an epoxy primer prepares the metal to be powder coated. The primer seeps into the microscopic profiles that the sandblasting created to help the powder coat apply evenly to the surface.
Powder Coat: The final step to the powder coating process is adding the powder coating to the metal gate. The powder coat is applied to the metal gate by way of a spray gun that applies an electrostatic charge to attract powder to the metal gate. Once the powder has been evenly applied, it is placed in the oven at 400 degrees.
Steps to Powder Coating Your Utah Metal Gates
If you want lasting quality, sandblasting is the only way to go. We sandblast to a clean white metal finish. Every part of your gate will be cleaned and uniformly textured for a lasting bond. Make sure your powder coater follows this procedure. It is critical to lasting performance.
Your gate is hung and statically charged. An epoxy primer is applied for optimal corrosion resistance. Then a high grade top coat is added. Every square inch is inspected for uniform coverage. You can specify gloss, texture and color to fit your needs.
Your gate will be placed in an oven where it will be heated to four hundred degrees. The powder liquefies and hardens to a glossy finish. Remember, a finish may look fantastic on the outside and have very poor bonding. Before you powder coat your gate, confirm your vendor follows these procedures. Confirm your finisher sandblasts to a clean white finish if you want ideal performance.
