Powder Coating

Powder coating is a dry finishing process that combines polymer resin systems, pigments, curatives, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives into a powder. Utilizing an electrostatic spray deposition (ESD), an operator applies the powder onto a metal surface. Powder coating offers twice the thickness when compared to standard paint for an extremely durable finish.

Equipment and machinery are a major capital investment for a company, requiring regular maintenance. Metal Surface Reconditioning is one of the most effective and economical ways to increase its lifespan and reduce repairs. Let’s look at some methods to recondition equipment.

Electrostatic Painting

Electrostatic painting applies a negative electric charge to the paint before it is sprayed. These negatively charged paint particles spread out evenly and become like magnets that are attracted to a surface with a positive charge. Electrostatic painting brings metal equipment back to their original appearance while inhibiting rust and producing less waste to keep costs down.


In sandblasting, fine grains of sand are blasted onto a metal surface at high speeds to clean, strip and smooth surfaces and to give them a ‘like-new quality. This chemical-free process removes rust, dirt, and grime much quicker than cleaning applications to make equipment look like new again.

Soda Blasting

When soda blasting, sodium bicarbonate abrasive media is blasted onto the equipment to strip grease, paint, mold, or dirt. Soda blasting cleans without metal warping, flash rust, etching, or pitting. It is a non-toxic, non-flammable, non-hazardous, and environmentally friendly as defined by the FDA, EPA and OSHA. This water-soluble media requires no pre-cleaning and offers easy clean up.
