Painting Sheet Metal
Paint coating sheet metal is not only used for aesthetic purposes, but also to increase the level of surface protection of the part while keeping costs down.
Painting sheet metal is less expensive up front. If your part’s full surface area does not need to be protected, painting is more flexible in accommodating that than other options.
Powder Coating Sheet Metal
Powder coating sheet metal accomplishes the same aesthetic and protection goals, plus:
- Increases part durability — powder coating produces a thicker layer
- High repeatability — our top-of-the-line robotic equipment makes the process a breeze
- Environmentally friendly — the powder contains no harmful chemicals, and excess spray can be vacuumed back up!
