Powder coating is a very common metal finish. You see it used on metal parts everywhere, from everyday appliances and products to metal tubes. If you’re thinking about customizing your order from Perforated Tubes, Inc. with a powder coating, you can learn more about it here to see if doing so makes sense for your needs.
Applying the Powder Coating
There are several different types of metal finishes, powder and liquid being two of them. Powder coating tubes are often the preferred method because it’s better for the environment. Whereas liquid finishes contain solvents and release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere, powder has no solvents and releases minimal VOCs.
To apply the powder coating, we use a special blend of finely ground particles. Customers can select the color, whether they’re looking for a standard metal color or a vibrant shade of blue or red. The powder coating is applied and then the tubes undergo a curing process.
Why Choose Powder-Coated Tubes?
There are many reasons why people want to add a powder coating to their tubes. Sometimes it’s solely for decoration, while other times it’s intended to make the tubes more durable. A powder-coat finish makes the metal tubes more resistant to scratches, chipping, fading and abrasion, enabling it to look good and last longer.
Because the powder-coat finish is so durable, it’s especially ideal for use in high-pressure environments and even extreme weather conditions. It can protect the tubes from damage caused by impact, UV light, moisture and chemicals. With a reinforced structure, clients can rely on powder-coated perforated metal tubes to meet the demands of the job they were intended for.
