Anything from patio tables and chairs to fences, our customers range from apartment complexes to restaurants. Our skilled powder coaters can put beautiful, durable finishes on your patio, pool, office, or display items. Common wear-and-tear issues are minimized due to 3-D powder coating shielding your furniture from moisture, salt air, chemicals, UV light, friction, and impact.
The 3-D Powder Coating Process
How do we make it all happen? It begins with a thorough surface preparation of the part. This step is incredibly important to the final outcome. At 3-D Powder Coating, cleaning and degreasing are accomplished by either phosphate solution systems, sand blasting, or steam cleaning, according to the application requirements. Then we apply high temperature masking tape and silicone plugs to keep coatings off any specified surfaces, such as threaded or high tolerance areas.
At that point, the part goes into 3-D’s booth for electrostatic application of the selected high-quality powder products. Types of coatings may range from FDA and UL approved selections, to regular polyester, epoxy and hybrid options. We use either a batch process or conveyor system depending on the job requirement. The coated parts then go to a large batch oven, or they pass through the four-stage curing oven. In the curing oven, the powder is melted, gelled, and finally hardened into the cured finish. The completed parts are then inspected to assure the highest standard of quality and your satisfaction!
Powder Coating – Liquid Paint Doesn’t Stand a Chance!
There is no question that powder coating is superior to liquid coatings as powder coating offers second-to-none protection from chipping, corrosion, chemicals, abrasion, UV exposure, and impact. The thickness difference between powder coating and wet paint demonstrates all you need to know:
- 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 unbeatable durability, and has no other equal alternative surface coating material. It can serve traditional roles for our Rowlett patrons who are looking for the best in lawn furniture protection, but functional powder coating offers much more.
The best possible protection is necessary for surfaces, parts, and machinery that are exposed to merciless environments such as extreme heat or cold, chemical exposure, and salt water. Equipment such as space satellites, military equipment, submarines, yachts, and Coast Guard vessels are excellent candidates for functional powder coating as it offers radiation protection, flame retardancy, electrical insulation properties, and more!

Powder Coating Bends Without Flaking
Powder coating’s flexibility properties border on unbelievable, which brings us to The Bend Test, one of several assessments to test powder coating’s performance reliability. To pass The Bend Test, powder coating is applied to .036-thick phosphated steel panels and must easily withstand 180-degree bends over ¼-inch mandrels, without cracking or flaking. Powder coating bends to conform to the demand– something you would never dare to try with wet paint products!
If that isn’t impressive enough, The Bend Test can also go a step further when the bent powder-coated surface is beaten with a ball-peen hammer. When no chipping or delamination is evident, the powder coating has passed The Bend Test. You’ll be amazed at powder coating’s elasticity and resistance to abuse, deformation, and extreme pressure!
Powder-Coating Finishes — Beauty Meets Durability
Our Rowlett customers can select clear powder-coating options which protect parts and finishes from chipping, scratching and fading. Additionally, we offer an array of gloss-levels which give underlying colors greater depth and vividness.
However, if you’re looking to give your lawn furniture a makeover, powder-coating colors can transform it from boring factory standards to eye-catching works of art! There is nothing our powder coating specialists can’t transform. Our Rowlett patrons can select from an array of exquisite colors, textures, and special effects that shield and protect your investment! Consider adding some of these elements to your next project: metallics, candies, shimmers, fluorescents, hammer-tones, glitters, and veining. The options are limitless! Not only does powder coating offer exceptional protection from contaminants, wear and tear, mechanical heat, corrosion and temperature extremes, but it will look good while doing it!
