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.
Elevating Point of Purchase Displays: Powder coating has revolutionized the retail industry, enhancing and protecting metal and steel components. From a custom storefront to an experiential product launch, powder coating provides a resilient, high-quality finish that resists chips, scratches, and corrosion. While POP displays are often inside, the powder coating process allows these metal displays to be placed indoors and outdoors. Plus, as goods are placed on the shelves and taken off by customers, the durability of the powder will keep the display looking great for years. If you want a personalized and eye-catching look for your next POP display, powder coating will help.
- Transforming Architectural Elements: Architectural structures are another application you can powder coat. Its features often benefit from the durability and aesthetic appeal of powder coating. From exterior cladding and perforated metal panels to restaurant partitions and signage, powder coating offers a seamless finish that withstands harsh weather conditions and extends the lifespan of metal and steel elements. Selecting powders and a coater, such as Accurate Metal Fab, which can offer AAMA 2604 and AAMA 2605 specifications, further allow for customization, enabling architects and designers to match specific colors and textures to their creative visions.
- Boosting Metal Enclosures: What else can you powder coat? Why metal enclosures, of course, are a specialty of metal fabricators! Before powder coating, metal enclosures look just like a simple box. If you kept them in this raw state, they would be prone to rust much faster, and no one would take the enclosure seriously. These metal enclosures can often house critical electrical components for ATMs, parking garage kiosks, and more. Powder coating the enclosure helps boost its presence, stay on brand, and extend the machine's longevity.
- Enhancing Industrial Equipment: Industrial equipment, such as screens and guards for the power generation industry, often faces extreme operating conditions and heavy wear. Powder coating provides an excellent solution for enhancing durability and prolonging the lifespan of machinery and components - especially outdoor equipment. From manufacturing machinery to storage racks and shelves, powder coating offers superior resistance to impact, chemicals, and UV rays, ensuring long-lasting protection.
- Beautifying Outdoor Receptacles: An outdoor receptacle is another item you can powder coat. If you have a dog and have visited a doggie park, you've probably noticed the little trash areas to throw out your doggie's poop. Powder coating the receptacle enhances the structure's durability and looks great for a "messy" activity like trash cans. Powder coating also enhances other outdoor items in parks and recreation areas across North America. This includes playground structures, sports equipment, park benches, and bike racks. Using powder coating for these metal and steel products creates a vibrant, weather-resistant finish that can withstand the elements. The added protection ensures longevity, reducing maintenance costs and preserving the appearance of these essential assets.
