Protect Your Products with Powder Coating

Powder coating is a fast, reliable, cost-effective way to protect your products and components from corrosion and wear, while also giving them a smooth, polished, uniform appearance. The process of powder coating is different from other types of liquid finishes and paint. Powder adheres to the object or objects, and then melts in an oven. This creates a uniform coating across the entire object, including any nooks, crannies or crevices. This coating helps to protect the object from scratches, abrasion and wear, as well as oxidation and corrosion. Some powder coatings can offer unique advantages to particular protects, such as advanced rust resistance, increased durability, food-safe coatings, and more. Powder coating is also highly versatile, with the ability to create almost any texture, color or finish you need, so your products or components look exactly the way you and your customers or clients expect.

Benefits of powder coating include:

  • Paint any color or shade
  • Use any metallic finish
  • Create matte, luster, gloss or any type of exterior
  • Protect against rust and corrosion
  • Produces very little waste
  • Works quickly, with no drying time
  • Creates uniform layers
  • Reduces the appearance of scratches and wear

Powder Coating for Commercial Construction

A large commercial construction company approached APEC with a problem. They needed an efficient, fast, long-lasting process to paint stacks and stacks of fabricated handrails safety-yellow for their industrial clients. Hiring laborers to paint the handrails using liquid paint is costly and wet paint doesn’t hold up well in an industrial environment. They were referred to West Michigan Powder Coating, a division of APEC in Lake Odessa, MI to consider powder coating the railings instead of wet painting them.

WMPC was able to save the construction company time and money by not only providing a consistent and durable finish in the approved safety-yellow needed, but they were able to do it faster than manual painting, which also helped them keep to their deadlines. WMPC continues a relationship with this firm, powder coating railings for them as needed for their new-build projects.
