We get many phone calls and emails from customers wondering what exactly we can powder coat. And a way to review this is by welcoming everyone to the world of powder coating! Metal Fabrication companies, such as Accurate Metal Fab, transform metal and steel into stunning (and sometimes shimmery) parts that are complete with a durable finish. At Accurate Metal Fabrication, we are a premier sheet metal fabricator based in Chicago. We specialize in unleashing the potential of powder coating with our new Powder Coating Paint Line. In this blog post, we'll explore what you can powder coat and the advantages it brings.
Powder coating advantages are numerous. It is a popular method of coating metal surfaces that starts with parts going through a multi-stage wash to ensure the surface is clean before applying paint. Then, a dry powder is electrostatically sprayed onto the surface either by highly-trained paint operators with paint guns or automatically with multiple spray nozzles to ensure every inch of metal is adequately coated. Then, the items are cured in an oven to create a durable and long-lasting finish. Finally, the material is spot-checked to ensure it has the proper coating. This multi-step process has multiple advantages for powder coating metal surfaces. This makes it the preferred choice over traditional liquid coatings for most forms of metal. Let's look at five key advantages that powder coating offers for sheet metal and steel.
Powder coating is a durable, long-lasting outdoor equipment and machinery finishing option. Unlike traditional paint finishes, powder coating provides superior protection against the harsh elements and weather conditions that outdoor gear is exposed to daily. Here are some reasons powder coating is ideal for outdoor equipment and machinery.

Having different types of welding in a metal fab shop is a give-in. If the metal fabrication shop you currently work with offers welding as a service, is it a metal fab shop? They might be, but welding is one of those "bread and butter" types of the fabrication process. But did you know that not all welding is the same? Different types of welding techniques and equipment are currently available in 2023. This two-part series will examine some of the more common weld techniques available at most fab shops, including ours. And then, we will come back to look at more advanced welding techniques in our next feature! Let's look at five different welding techniques you can use in 2023.
