What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a sprayed on dry powder on all our bat house mounting brackets. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically (with an electric current) and is then cured under heat (an industrial oven) to allow it to flow and form a "skin". It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
A method of preparing the surface prior to coating is known as abrasive blasting or sandblasting and shot blasting. Blast media and blasting abrasives are used to provide surface texturing and preparation, etching, finishing, and degreasing for products.
