Automotive Powder Coating – In the ‘Thick’ of It
Automotive powder coating is superior to liquid coatings and offers second-to-none protection from chipping, corrosion, chemicals, abrasion, UV exposure, and impact. The thickness difference between powder coating and wet paint is revealing – case in point:
- Wet paint – 0.5 to 1 mil
- Decorative powder-coating – 2 to 6 mils
- Functional powder-coating – 6 to 10+ mils
Functional powder-coating has a track record of mind-boggling durability, and it reigns supreme as the king of surface coating materials. It can serve traditional roles for our Fort Worth patrons who are looking for the utmost in automotive parts protection, but functional powder coating offers much more.
When applied to surfaces, parts, and machinery that are exposed to merciless environments such as extreme heat or cold, chemical exposure, and salt water, the best protection on planet Earth pulls no punches. Space satellites, military equipment, submarines, yachts, and Coast Guard vessels are candidates for functional powder coating which goes the extra mile. That extra mile offers radiation protection, flame retardancy, electrical insulation properties, and more.
From local dirt-bike owners to professional race teams across the country, powder coating is the better-than-paint option when beautifying and protecting one’s investment is a priority. When a vehicle’s chassis, grill, wheels, handlebars, fuel tank, suspension parts, steering wheel etc become 3-D Powder Coated, ‘ordinary’ becomes ‘extraordinary!
Powder Coating Bends! – Does Paint?
Powder coating’s flexibility properties, pretty much, need to be seen to be fully appreciated. This brings us to the Bend Test. The Bend Test is one of several assessments to test powder coating’s performance reliability. Here, powder coating is applied on .036-thick phosphated steel panels, and it must easily withstand 180-degree bends over ¼-inch mandrels, without cracking or flaking. Powder coating bends to conform to the demand– try that with wet paint products!
The Bend Test can go a step further where the bent powder-coated surface is also, relentlessly, beat with a ball-peen hammer. When no chipping or delamination is evident, one has to feel astounded at powder coating’s elasticity and resistance to abuse, deformation, and extreme pressure – yes, powder coating gets bragging rights over wet paint!
Powder-Coating Finishes – Oh, the Possibilities!
Our Fort Worth customers can select clear powder-coating options which protect parts and finishes from chipping, scratching and fading. We offer an array of gloss-levels which give underlying colors greater depth and vividness.
Powder-coating colors transform automotive parts from ‘drab’ to ‘drop-dead gorgeous’, but other detailing adds an additional ‘WOW’ factor: metallics, candies, shimmers, fluorescents, hammer-tones, glitters, and veining present eye-candy options that are luscious and limitless! Adding beauty to exceptional protection from contaminants, wear and tear, mechanical heat, corrosion and temperature extremes is what automotive powder coating is known for!
And here’s one more thing to ponder: once powder-coating cools, it’s ready to be handled! Paint, on the other hand, can take up to several days to cure. Our Fort Worth customers love 3-D’s quick turn around!
