What is Powder Coating?
Powder Coating is a dry form of painting. The equipment we use consist of an electrostatic powder gun, and large industrial ovens. The metal part is grounded and the powder that comes out of the gun is positively charged. This charged powder clings to the metal. We then put the awnings into one of our large (8’x8’x22′) industrial ovens, then bake the awning at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes. This allows the powder to bake into the pores of the metal. The end result is a strong flexible finish similar to an automotive type finish. The best choice for all awnings is powder coating because powder coating is 5-10 times stronger than liquid paint, it has the best UV, Rust, Corrosion, and chemical protection. Powder Coating comes in many colors from Metallics to basic reds, black, white, and textures.
