What is powder coating?
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish to a wide range of materials and products that are used in industrial and consumer applications. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which are applied onto a surface to be coated
How is powder coating applied?
Electrostatic spraying is the most widely accepted powder application method and the electrostatic powder gun is the most important piece of equipment in this method. The powder gun provides a 100kv electrostatic charge to the powder. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surface, which is then heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality, and attractive finish. Powder coating is the fastest-growing finishing technology in North America and represents over ten percent of all industrial finishing applications. F.B.E and functional coatings can be applied differently.
The fluidized bed consists of two chambers separated be a specifically designed porous membrane plate that serves to uniformly diffuse air throughout the coating powder. In proper operation the powder will expand to more than twice its original volume, ready to accept preheated objects.
The suspended powder behaves exactly like a fluid so that the particles distribute themselves over the entire surface of the fence panels, even into the least accessible areas. When correctly applied, the parts are totally encapsulated without sags, runs or pinholes.
Why use Powder Coating over liquid paint?
Powder coating gives consumers, businesses and industry one of the most economical, longest-lasting durable quality finishes available.
Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with high and low gloss, metallic and clear finishes available. Colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte finish, and rough textures.
Protects the Environment
Powder Coating is also environmentally friendly. While liquid finishes contain solvents which have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), powder coating contains no solvents and releases negligible amounts, if any, VOCs into the atmosphere. In addition, most powder coating over spray that does not adhere to the part can be retrieved and reused, virtually eliminating the waste commonly found in liquid finishing processes.
Stringent air pollution control legislation is one of the factors that have led to the growing ma
ket for powder coating. Elimination of VOCs and reduction of waste saves money and eases compliance with the regulations of the Canadian & U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.Pretreatment/Coating Process for Galvalume FencingZinc Phosphate Pretreatment with a heavy UV resistant Polyester Powder Coating is a smart choice for long lasting maintenance free fencingPretreatmentA key component of our coating procedure is the preparation of the metal substrate to enhance bond strength, which ensures lasting protection and appearance.

What is Galvalume™ coating?
Galvalume™ is a coated steel product that has proven its superior performance as a building material during extended field-testing in a diverse range of corrosive environments. Its unique combination of durability, edge protection, and resistance to corrosion is at least twice that of galvanized steel.
The Galvalume™ coating is an alloy composed of 55% aluminum and approximately 45% zinc by weight. It is applied on both sides of a high quality cold-rolled steel sheet using a precise continuous hot dip process. The result is a highly corrosion resistant coated steel that combines the barrier protection and extended durability of aluminum with the galvanic protection of zinc.
Galvalume™ steel sheet can be expected to provide at least twice the service life of traditional
zinc-coatings of similar coating thickness under the same exposure conditions. This has been proven by actual exposure tests using flat coupon samples conducted over 40 years in the U.S.A. and 20 years in Canada. The tests covered a variety of environments ranging from rural to severe marine. The following chart, comparing the performance of Galvalume™ and galvanized of equal coating thickness, shows that Galvalume™ has at least twice the service life versus galvanized.
Superior Cut Edge Protection:
The aluminum and zinc in the coating combine to prevent corrosion at exposed edges. The zinc component of the Galvalume™ coating provides galvanic cut-edge protection, while the aluminum component remains as a continuing barrier to corrosion.
Galvalume™ is highly corrosion resistant, providing strength and superior iron fences and gates. Galvalume™ provides a bright, attractive appearance with a fine spangle and gentle sheen. Because the resin coating is transparent, the standard surface appearance of our product is unchanged.
Advantages to the consumer include:
- Fingerprint resistance; Protection against non-uniform weathering; excellent resistance to transit corrosion and storage stain.
- Coating losses of Galvalume Powder Coated Steel Vs. Galvanized Steel
What is E-coating?
E-Coat is an electrically-applied paint coating. It is also known as electro coating, electronic coating, electronic painting, and electro photo coating. E-coating was developed originally for the automotive industry because it is economical and provides superior coverage, adhesion, and corrosion resistance. It coats any metal (aluminum, zinc, brass, steel) that conducts electricity.
Here is how E-coat works. The parts to be E-coated are first cleaned of all grease and other contaminants and treated with a zinc phosphate conversion coating. The parts are placed on a metal rack, hung from an overhead conveyor and immersed in an E-coat paint tank. A direct negative electrical charge is applied to the carriage and the body and parts are “electrically charged.” An opposite direct positive electrical charge is applied to the paint bath.This process is known as cationic E-coat and is used to provide a more corrosion-resistant film than the more common anionic E-coat process. The paint bath is filled with Cathodic Epoxy E-coat. Epoxy based E-coats are used in environments where corrosion protection is paramount.
Your “charged” parts attract the oppositely charged paint particles. As the paint is deposited it begins to act as an insulator and deposition slows, stopping at a precisely predetermined thickness that is governed by the amount of voltage applied during the process. Even though deposition may have slowed or may be complete on one area on the surface of the part, deposition will continue on any uncoated or incompletely-coated area of the part until complete coverage is achieved.
This is a very important point, especially when a hemmed part is involved. For example, the “hemmed” area or seam on a fence post. Once the part is hemmed (joined together), conventional spraying obviously cannot reach the inside surfaces of the outer or inner surfaces.
When a part is dipped in an E-coat bath, the E-coat is electrically drawn through the drainage or weep holes and other openings in the hemmed parts and adheres to the inside surfaces. Conventional spraying of the most advanced primers leaves uncovered areas and over time, rust and corrosion can occur. After your parts are coated, they are rinsed, and any undeposited paint solids are reclaimed and recycled. The final step is to cure the E-coat by baking. Your parts are taken by the conveyor system to a baking oven. Heat treating causes the molecules of the paint film to crosslink, which further adds to its strength and durability.As you can see, the very nature of the E-coat process produces a complete and uniform protective coating.
Benefits E-Coat offers are:
- Cosmetic Appeal. E-Coat paint applies a super-even finish, no dripping, no pooling and no gaps allowing for an ideal surface to apply top-coats.
- Corrosion Protection. All parts are coated evenly inside and out. Complex parts can be coated even after assembly.
- Unbeatable Durability. Withstands the most rigorous salt spray, adhesion, dielectric, acid resistance tests.
- Super Adhesion. Because of the very nature of the E-Coat process, a thin coat can be complete, uniform, tough, and attractive, while still maintaining close engineered tolerances.
E-coat is standard OEM practice: it is corrosion-resistant, chemical-resistant, temperature-resistant.
E-Coat is much more effective than even currently available etching primers. Traditional spray techniques cannot compare to the quality and durability of an E-coat primer.
