Metal powder coating is a dry finishing process that involves applying dry colored powder to a metal product via electrostatic means and melting it into a smooth, hardened, protective metal coating. It has become a preferred alternative to traditional metal finishing methods, such as wet spray painting.
This type of metal finishing works to enhance the final product’s quality, durability, and appearance. In addition to this, it is environmentally friendly and more cost-effective than other methods.
Advantages of Powder Coating for Steel Fabrication
- Provides a tougher, harder finish than traditional paint

- Easier to produce think, even protective coatings
- Enhances the final products’ appearance
- Enables electrical conductivity/resistance
- Greater reflectivity, torque tolerance, and solderability
