Powder Coating

Let’s get baked! Our paint shop boasts over 30 years of experience in delivering a safe and superior alternative to conventional painting. It’s a high quality, rust-free finish that is scratch and chip resistant—and can last over 20 years.

All items brought in for powder coating must be sandblasted before we can start the painting process. It is our preference that this is done before bringing items into our shop, although for a fee we can take care of this process for you.

Frances Andrew uses Tiger Drylac for our standard 26 colours and Prismatic Powders Canada for custom colours.

How Powder Coating Works
The dry finishing process is created by an electrostatic charge that causes a dry powder to fuse to the surface of the metal. It’s then baked in our curing oven to achieve a tough coating.

Metal Preparation Information
Most metal parts are pre-treated with an industrial degreaser and an iron phosphate as part of the cleaning process before being hung on carts and baked at 390ºF. This ensures the parts are free from any moisture.
