Powder Coating:

Almost all metals can be powder coated except a very few types of aluminum.  The advantages to powder coating are: powder coating is stronger than conventional painting, does not oxidize, no need to wax just wash with soap and water, deeper color, lower cost, and powder coating makes your parts stronger, and has better rust protection. It is also available in a wide variety of colors, glosses and textures. All metals are sandblasted first to create a smooth finish and also to help the powder adhere to the surface.

Ceramic Coating:

Ceramic coating is a liquid based coating that is sprayed on.  The advantage of ceramic coating is that ceramic coating keeps the heat inside the exhaust and allows for a more free flowing exhaust.  Ceramic coating can be applied to all metals that can withstand 500 degrees of heat.  We have a variety of colors and most colors can hold up to 1500 degrees of heat.


All products brought into Powder1 are sandblasted with aluminum oxide sand.  We provide sandblast only services to create a smooth surface for other desired finishes or to remove rust.  Our sandblaster is also used for glass etching and wood etching products.
