The Powder Coating Process
The powder coating process at APX York Sheet Metal forms a corrosion-resistant finish that you can apply to steel, brass, aluminum, iron or copper. In fact, almost any type of metal can undergo the powder method that creates a similar look to paint but is more durable. The technique begins by stripping the item to its bare metal by removing paints, finishes, rust, grease and dirt.
The technicians at APX York Sheet Metal then spray it with a dry powder that resembles flour. Sprayed through a gun that electrically charges it, the dust sticks to the metal. We bake the material in an oven at 400 degrees F. The baking procedure is what allows the powder to form a gel that covers the entire piece.
