How to Choose the Right Powder Coat Color

Choosing powder coating color

Choosing the right powder coat color is simple… and it isn’t.

There’s no wrong choice for powder coat color, if you choose the right applicator for the job. The first step is understanding that applying powder coat is a complex process.

Unlike liquid paint, powder coating is a dry powder that is applied electrostatically and then cured under heat.

American Dry Stripping™ & Xtreme Coatings helps people with all of their powder coating service needs. We are located in Milford, CT near New Haven and offer a convenient pick-up and delivery service in New York including Long Island, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. Contact us to learn more.

Tips for Choosing Your Powder Coat Color

There are literally thousands of colors, textures and finishes in powder coating. You are not limited to “black” or “gray”.

One customer recently brought us his motorcycle rims. In order to achieve the finish he wanted, it required four layers of powder coat. He was so thrilled with the results, he drove back to show our team the results.

When you are ready to select the color for your job, you can follow these steps to help you choose:

  • Scan the Prismatic Gallery for a job or color that you like
  • Discuss with our Powder Coating professionals the finish, texture, and effect that you want
  • Narrow the selection and finalize your color choice with our team.

Below is just a sample of the range of colors we have available.

These are jobs we completed in the last year or so, in our shop. You can see the types of jobs we do, including automotive, motorcycles, patio furniture, radiators, vintage metalwork, industrial and more.

Why Choose Powder Coating?

Powder coating is durable and protects from future corrosion and rust. That only works, however, if the coating is applied evenly and is cured properly. If this is not correct, the only color you will be seeing is rusty red.

Our team ensures coatings are applied evenly and our curing oven temps and times are correct. We inspect all work before sending it back to you.

Powder Coating vs Painting: What to Choose

Powder coating vs painting

One of the most common questions we are asked is: What is the advantage of choosing powder coating over painting?

Here’s the answer.

American Dry Stripping™ & Xtreme Coatings helps people with all of their powder coating service needs.

What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is dry powder that comes in thousands of shades and colors. It is applied to a product’s surface. It adheres due to an electrostatic charge being applied to the powder and the product your powder coating being grounded.

Powder coatings tend to be applied in heavier coats in comparison to paint. After application, we cure powder coating in an oven. This completes the application process and helps protect the surface.

The powder can be made of any number of products: polyester, polyurethane, polyester-epoxy, straight epoxy, and acrylics. The powder coating finishing process yields a thick, hard finish that is tougher than conventional paints. Powder coating is commonly found on household appliances and automobile parts.

The Advantages of Powder Coating over Liquid Paint

Powder coating may be chosen for application over liquid paint for one key reason: durability. If powder coating is applied by an expert applicator, its heavy coat makes it more resilient to scratches, weather, and related issues.

This makes it ideal for automotive parts finishing, architecturalpowder coating vs painting rims uses and outdoor furniture and railings, for example. It’s also become popular on the restoration of vintage radiators for its longevity.

In addition, powder coating has a smaller impact on the environment. When applied, it is not exhausted into the air which makes it less harmful to the atmosphere. The powder can also be recovered and reused if a powder recovery booth is used.

When to Choose Paint vs Powder Coat

With all the benefits of powder coating, paint has its advantages. It tends to be less expensive initially, especially with larger parts. Paint can also achieve a finer finish than powder coat. Liquid paint can be touched up as well, which makes it easier to repair.

Additionally, certain types of appearances can be hard to achieve with powder coatings like metallic coatings compared to liquid, which is why automobile body finishes are generally not powder coated.

What is best for your application?

Deciding between powder coating vs. liquid paint can be a difficult decision. Feel free to to consult with us and we can help you consider all of the possibilities with special detail to the needs of your company, your customers, and your product.

Sandblasting vs. Media Blasting: Do You know the Difference?

For safety reasons, media blasting replaced sandblasting. But it’s OK to still call it that. We know what you mean.

Sandblasting vs Media blasting: understanding the difference. Sandblasting CT

The difference between sandblasting vs. media blasting helps you understand the history of safety in manufacturing shops.

If you ever come to our our shop, you will can easily see why. The post-blasting grit you will see on the floor of our booths can be easily mistaken for sand… and in many shops back in the day, sand was once used as a go-to media for blasting.

American Dry Stripping™ & Xtreme Coatings helps people with all of their sandblasting and media blasting service needs. We are based in Milford, Connecticut and serve customers in metropolitan New York and surrounding counties, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. Contact us to learn more.

We offer a pick-up and delivery service.

Why Sand is NOT used for Blasting Anymore

In short, Abrasive blasting with sands containing crystalline silica can cause serious or fatal respiratory disease.

In the past, blast cleaning operations were done with silica sand. The term sandblasting originates from those days. We now know that exposure to crystalline silica during sandblasting can cause Silicosis.

During blasting, the sand particles break down into very small particles. These particles, are inhaled and become embedded in the lung, causing respiratory problems, pulmonary silicosis (also called ‘dust-lungs’), and eventually even death.

What Replaces Sandblasting: Dry Abrasive Media Blasting

Sandblasting vs. Media blasting: Sandblasting is an old term for media blasting or dry abrasive blasting used to remove paint, rust and coatings and to add surface profiles.

It may be a mouthful, but the correct term for the work we do at American Dry Stripping is “media blasting” or “dry abrasive  blasting”. Silica sand has been replaced with other media, including grit blast, walnut shells, glass bead, plastic bead, and other media,

The media is propelled through a high-pressure tool and easily strips away old paint, rust, and other kinds of surface blemishes or imperfections.

At our shop, our blasting systems include blasting booth, air dryers and oil and water separators, dust collection, manual and mechanical media reclamation, media volume and air pressure regulators and supportive protective gear for the operator.

“Sandblasting” (that is, media blasting!) is used in our shop to remove coatings, rust and corrosion, and to add surface profile to prepare alloys for new coatings. It can also be used on glass and other hard surfaces for etching.

What is our approach to effectively complete a large industrial job?

  1. Intake

    Industrial abrasive blasting
    John in the blast booth, inspecting a job.

    Our shop manager, John, manages intake for the wide variety of industrial work through our doors.  With over 15 years experience in the abrasive blasting environment, John knows the critical first step is a review of the customer specifications and requirements accompanying the purchase order. He will assess what blast media to use to ensure the outcome is exactly what the customer wants and expects.

    As part of the quality control process John and his team shop count and inspect individual parts for conformity. The team reviews media selection, blast parameters and masking or protection requirements.

  2. Burning and Blasting
    Metal components previously coated with hard-to-remove powder or heavy paint are first processed in our burn-off oven. High temperatures turn coating to ash and makes for efficient, more cost effective removal processing. Smaller parts are then sent to the cabinet blasting area whereas larger parts go to the big blast booths where blasting technicians execute the order plan.Our team is trained to understand blasting variables like angle, pressure, duration and distance for the wide range of material substrates they encounter to insure the best possible outcome without damage to the component part. Once the blast process is complete component parts are carefully inspected and counted once again to confirm in equals out.
  3. Coatings
    Do the items need powder coating or ceramic coating?Architectural soffits powder coated black
    The parts are then sent to our in-house coatings shop.Color choice is generally defined but we can also help choose an appropriate finish for the project. Some color choices or priming requirements require more than one oven cure cycle.  Inspection and final count are made before packaging.
  4. Packaging, Storage and Delivery
    Packaging parts after powder coating and abrasive blasting
    After all blast and finish work are completed we ensure processed parts are protected with appropriate wrapping materials. If finish coating is not part of the process, raw material is stored in a climate- and temperature-controlled environment until pick up.
    Should you require pick-up or delivery, our transportation office staff and team member will organize timely delivery.
  5. Follow-Up
    You can expect a follow-up call from Roger or John or Sarah to ensure your bulk blasting and coating job was completed to your satisfaction.

So we do get asked, can you powder coat wood? More often than you’d think!

The answer: It depends on the wood! As most folks familiar with powder coating know, the product you want to coat has to be able to accept a charge… and wood is notorious for rejecting electrical charge. However, fiberboard (known as MDF) is an exception.

Although we do not PC MDF in the shop, it can be done by manufacturers.

For a complete explanation, here’s a terrific answer from the Powder Coating Institute:
