"Just wanted to thank you and your team for the awesome job done on my chair/table set.  AND you were reasonable in price!!" Susan H.

                                                                                                                                             

What is Powder Coating?

"The job you did on my chassis is keeping me coming back and I'm telling everyone to call you!"

                                                                                                                                                                                   

Powder Coating has been around for about 50 years. It was developed as a formulation for a finely ground "plastic" powder. It has been the number one finish choice of many manufacturers in a wide range of industries for many years. Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder to a wide range of materials and products that are used by various industries and consumers. The process of powder coating is done by first cleaning the part to a dry, bare metal surface. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment (color) and resin (protective finish), which are electrostatically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the powder particles in place while the part is cured in a 350-400-degree oven. The heat of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure; creating a highly durable finish that is bonded directly to the metal.

 Why Powder Coat?

  • Environmentally Friendly; virtually no emissions, solvents, nor hazardous wastes
  • Saves money and helps companies comply more easily and economically with the regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency by the elimination of VOCs and reduction of wastes
  • Unused or over sprayed powder can be disposed of easily
  • Safely extends product life by providing more resistance to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes
  • Resistant to corrosion, heat, impact, abrasion, fading from sunlight, and extreme weather

What can be powder coated?

Parts made from aluminum, steel, iron, brass, copper, bronze and titanium can be powder coated — all metal objects that have an electrostatic charge and can withstand 4OOF can be powder coated. Powder can be applied to intricate surfaces and still maintain a uniform finish across the entire piece. Magnesium and Aluminum Castings may experience out-gassing causing bubbles in the finish. For the out-gassing, we usually pre heat the parts. The idea is to heat the items to a temp HIGHER than what the cure temp is before we coat them. That way, while we apply the powder and send them in to cure, they are actually cooling from around 425F to 390F, which will have the effect of pulling the coating in to the parts rather than have the gasses pushing out.  For 30 years, powder coating has been the finish of choice for a superior, more colorful, longer lasting and more durable finish.

What does media blasting do for my parts?

Blasting helps provide a great adhesion and durability of the finish. Sandblasting is a generic term for the process of cleaning a hard surface by propelling very fine bits of material at high-velocity to clean a surface; the effect is similar to that of using sandpaper, but provides a more even finish with no problems at comers or crannies. Imperfections are loosened and can then be easily washed off. Blasting creates a surface profile that increases the performance of the powder coating finish. When you have big pieces, there is no substitute for a "blast room" dedicated to media blasting.  Media Blasting is used to remove existing finish, rust, or mill scale to prepare the surface for powder coat adhesion & durability.

What is a clear coat?

Clear powder coating protects the underlying finish and adds depth and luster to the surface. Clear powder coat is applied as a second coat. The piece is then returned to the oven for an additional curing process. A clear powder coating may be added for exterior applications and improved mar resistance.

Can you use powder coat for a chrome finish?

There are powders available to achieve a finish similar to chrome. One thing that must be understood is that these are a 2 - coat processes (add 50%) and they are not an exact match for chrome.

Can you re-powder coat something that is already powder coated? Does it need to be stripped or sandblasted first?

Not necessarily. One reason to strip or sandblast a previously coated piece is if the original finish isn't adhering to the item. If it's not peeling off, you can generally coat over it. To be sure, we would need to see the item in order to give you our professional opinion.

Markets DJ Powder Coating serves:

Small custom jobs:

Each customer holds equal importance to our business. Small and/or short-term jobs are handled with the same care and level of service as any other job. You should try to get as many parts together that are to be powder coated the same color. This will eliminate color change time and will help in ordering the correct amount of powder, if it is not a stock color.

Large, long running jobs:

Our large oven racks allow us to run most large quantity jobs faster and more efficiently than ever before. Whether the jobs consist of multiple small parts or large parts, our oven capacity (22.5’ Long X 8’ High X 8’ Wide + 14' Long X 8’ High X 8’ Wide) can handle them without difficulty.

Getting things done on time:

We complete jobs in the order they are received. We offer timely service; however, we do not rush a job. We pride ourselves in completing all of our customers’ jobs as if they were our own. After all, it is the finish that is seen first. We strive to achieve total customer satisfaction while keeping turnaround time to a maximum of 2 weeks. Under normal circumstances, we get things done correctly and on time. Getting your parts done right and on time is always a top priority. We strive that each part go out the door when you want it, however if the need arises we will notify you in the event of any delay.

If some of the parts don't meet your expectations:

Please inspect your parts upon pick up. If you should discover something wrong with your part(s), notify us immediately. If you reject part(s) due to a coating issue that was caused by us, we will recoat. Parts that are too light, too heavy, chipped, scratched or damaged upon your receipt can be replaced at no charge. However, if a powder coated part is brought back months later to be reworked there will be a charge.

Rough handling, improper storage and poor condition of raw parts can cause rejects that we cannot be responsible for. The bottom line is if the error rests on our shoulders we will gladly recoat the parts and do whatever we can to address the problem to satisfy your needs. DJ Powder Coating reserves the right to validate all claims, but we will not charge you to correct our own mistakes.

Powder colors available:

We can special order 1000s of colors we don't have in stock. Feel free to come by our powder coating facility and browse our wide selection of color samples to pick the perfect color for your next upcoming project. Our professional staff will explain the properties of each type of powder and help you to make the best informed choice for your application. If you already have a color in mind, bring it in so that we can match it as closely as we can without sacrificing quality. Unlike paint, you can’t mix powder to change the color; it will only come out speckled. There is probably a color already available that is close enough. It is easier to match paint to powder, than powder to paint. Custom colors for a perfect match are available, but may cost @ $300.00 and up to 4 weeks for production.

Finishes available:

 Types of Coatings:

We are committed to better serving these industries with the following: 

Standard prices include pre-treatment, and powder coating using a stock color (Gloss or matte black or white, red, blue, silver, navy blue, yellow). Parts should be disassembled. Additional costs may vary due to extra pre-treatment needed, color and quantity of powder ordered. Clear coats can be applied to almost all powders for a look of depth, gloss and extra protection. Some colors require a clear coat (i.e. some metallics, silver, dormants, etc.). A 2nd coat of clear or primer will add 50-60%.

Standard prices include pre-treatment, and powder coating using a stock color (Gloss or matte black or white, red, blue, silver, navy blue, yellow). Parts should be disassembled. We have a minimum of 100.00 to cover costs. Additional costs may vary due to extra preparation, color and quantity of powder ordered.

A 2nd coat of clear or primer will add 50-60%.

How much would it cost to powder coat my items?

  • Size and Shape: Affects price - sometimes weight is considered if it requires more manpower to move
  • Type of Finish: Matt or Gloss Black is going to be cheaper than Black Starlight.
  • Quantity: Major factor in pricing a powder coating job - if you bring a small, simple item (like a bracket) and you want it coated in a stock color that we are already coating for another job - in order to give you the best price possible, we will try to put your part with that rack and only charge you for the coating on just your part. If you need the part quickly or in a unique color, we will have to charge more.

See our Contact Page to send us pictures or specs for your part and we will gladly get you an estimate.

Do all powders the same cost the same?

Stock colors are naturally less expensive than powder that must be special-ordered or powders that are hard to locate. Some other powders are higher-priced simply because of their properties, such as high temperature, textured or luminescent powders. The cost of the powder represents only a small part of the total cost of the powder coating process. Most of the cost can be attributed to the labor of setup and processing of the parts, which varies depending on the circumstances required to process each individual part.
