Wolfe Ridge Metal Fabrication offers complete powder coating services for any of the metal products we produce with a focus on detailed customer communication and quality service.
Today, Powder Coating is the preferred finishing method by the top manufacturers of metal products in all industries nationwide.
The process involves appling the powder coat electrostatically and then it is cured under heat to allow it to flow until it forms a skin-like coating over an metal object. This process results in a finish that is much durable than a conventional paint coating.
Because powder coating does not have a liquid carrier, it can produce thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging, and powder coating produces minimal appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces. Because no carrier fluid evaporates away, the coating process emits few volatile organic compounds (VOC). Finally, several powder colors can be applied before curing them all together, allowing color blending and bleed special effects in a single layer.
Our customers have an unlimited choice of colors with various blending and fading options to replicate their brand or create exciting new styles to market their products.
Powder coating produces a uniform finish that is ideal for finishing multiple objects. Unlike solvent based paint, powder coating is preferred because you will not have any color running or any streaks on your finished products.
Powder Coatings feature characteristics such as:
Various types of powder coats are available to provide different protection and visual appeal to metal parts.
Increase the performance and lifespan of your industrial equipment and steelwork with reliable powder coating services from Wolfe Ridge Powder Coating.
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish to virtually any type of metal. The powder used in the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which electrostatically sprayed onto the surface to be coated.
Industrial equipment and products can benefit from powder coating, which offers corrosion resistance, abrasion protection and an attractive, uniform surface finish. Another advantage of powder coating is environmental stewardship. Powder coating produces less waste than conventional liquid coatings, emits zero or near zero volatile organic compounds and its overspray can be recycled. Powder coating also enables the use of specialty effects that are otherwise impossible with standard coating processes.
Wolfe Ridge architectural powder coatings are high performance, high quality, expertly applied, durable coatings designed specifically with architectural applications in mind. Suitable for use on aluminum and steel for both interior and exterior applications, Eclipse architectural powder coatings offer excellent durability, good chemical resistance and mechanical performance and is a true sustainable alternative to liquid and anodized finishes.
Powder coating is specified because of its durability, scratch resistance, gloss retention, weatherability, resistance to chalking, the unlimited range of colors, finishes, glosses and textures.
An environmentally friendly finishing process, powder coat metal finishing meets AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) specifications. This makes powder coating an important part of a sustainable or green building project that incorporates low-emitting products. Virtually any part and any product in your next project might lend itself to powder coating including metal and aluminum composites. Powder coating offers advantages over liquid paint and anodizing.
In addition to being the more durable and attractive choice, powder coating is also highly protective of our environment.
Environmentally friendly powder coating overspray can be recycled, and thus it is possible to achieve nearly 92% use of the coating.
Powder coatings contain no solvents and therefore emit negligible, if any, polluting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere.
Powder coating is a clean process, allowing exhaust air from the coating booth to be returned to the plant, and less oven air is exhausted to the outside. Heating and cooling costs are eliminated for make-up air and the cost for maintaining oven temperatures is minimized.
