Why Not Spray Paint?
The Powder Coating Edge
Powder Coating is a smarter, more economical way to apply a decorative and protective finish to metal and aluminum products. It's not just a useful alternative for metal doors and frames, roofing or wrought iron; it's also far superior in terms of coating quality and durability. A popular refinishing method, it's been championed by institutions, homeowners and consumers for courtyard, patio and office furniture, entry gates, barbecue grills, basketball frames, and other interior and exterior furniture, fixtures and recreational items.
So, what's better: powder coating or spray painting? Powder Coating uses a different type of powder than aerosol spray paint. Spray paint, dispensed as a fine mist, is an expensive process over the long run as it tends to chips and fade quickly often requiring repeated applications. Further, spray painting does not protect the metal or aluminum and often the product is discarded requiring a new purchase. A powder coated surface can last up to 20 years—which can save you thousands.
