Frequently Asked Questions

What is Powder Coating?

image95

 Powder coating is the process of applying pigmented powder electrostatically to metal and is then cured between 350-450 degrees to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. 

What are the benefits of Powder Coating?

  Powder Coating gives you the most economical, longest lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes.  

What color powders are available?

There are over 6,500 different colors available. The possibilities are virtually endless!


How is Pricing Done?

 Since every job is custom, pricing varies. Mitigating factors include, but are not limited to: condition of part, type of powder, color changes,  logistical aspects, etc.


Do you disassemble parts to be coated?

We do not disassemble nor reassemble motorcycle or auto parts, such as brake calipers etc. I do not disassemble or mount tires. Make sure wheels are not bent, dented, or structurally damaged before coating. We are no responsible for re-coating if these issues are not disclosed.  


DISCLAIMER: Cast aluminum and zinc coated metals have the potential to outgas during the cure. I take every precaution to avoid this by outgassing the part pre-coat.  However, the potential to have outgassing imperfections in the finish is still prevalent, and I will not be held liable for these imperfections.
