Re: Powder Coating

Powder coating is basically plastic dust that is electo-statically sprayed on a part and then its baked at about 375 degrees which causes all the "dust" to melt together and provide a nice smooth finish on the part. Powder coating is very durable and can take a lot of abuse compared to regular pant. This is why people powder coat suspension parts and sometimes the entire frame. Power coating is typically much thicker than paint. But I would not recommend it for high-heat applications.
It's great for thinks like engine accessories, pulleys, brackets, radiator support, splash pans, air cleaners, henges, and things like that. The only downside is that you really cant get it custom shaded to match every color.
