Powder Coating Services
We provide powder coating services. Powder coating is a top-tier solution, offering unmatched durability and visual allure for CNC machined parts. This surface finish not only accentuates the appeal of a product but also boosts its longevity, providing an edge in aesthetics and performance.
What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is an advanced finishing process wherein a dry, free-flowing powder is applied to a surface, primarily metals, using electrostatic methods. Once applied, the object is heated in a curing oven, causing the powder to melt and form a uniform, protective layer.
Unlike traditional liquid paints, powder coating requires no solvent to keep the filler and binder parts liquid. As a result, it provides a durable, resilient, and smooth finish, resistant to chipping, scratching, and fading. Additionally, due to the absence of harmful solvents and reduced waste, its environmentally-friendly nature makes it a preferred choice for many industries.
Applied predominantly to metal objects – and with increasing relevance, CNC parts – this technique enhances the part’s aesthetic and durability.
Powder coating Specifications
Powder coating is commonly used for various metal substrates, including steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, and copper.
Every requirement has a hue, from basic blacks and whites to vibrant reds, blues, greens, and custom colors.
Finishes can range from smooth to wrinkled, matte to a high gloss, or even rough textures to simulate natural surfaces like stone or wood.
It's extensively used in automotive parts, architectural components, household appliances, and outdoor furniture. Due to its resistance to corrosion, wear, and UV rays, it's a preferred finish for products exposed to harsh environmental conditions.

Other surface finishes for CNC parts
Anodizing is a process that can be suitable for CNC machined parts to enhance their performance, appearance and durability. It immerses the part in an electrolyte bath and applying an electric current which helps create a protective oxide film on its surface.
Black oxide is also referred to as blackening, and it adds a matte black finish to the metal, making the surface look darker in contrast to its original state. It makes the CNC parts appear more aesthetically pleasing while also protecting it from corrosion and rusting.
The goal of polishing is to enhance the natural beauty of the material so that it looks better than when it was first created.
Bead blasting is a finishing process that uses small, round particles to force abrasive material onto any given surface. This process can improve the surface of CNC parts by smoothing and rounding out rough edges, removing burrs and other surface imperfections.
Electroless nickel plating
Electroless nickel plating is an incredibly useful process for adding a protective layer of metal to a variety of surfaces. It involves immersing the object in an electroless nickel solution, which then deposits nickel onto the surface.
Brushing is a process that ensures the cleanliness and accuracy of a final product. This involves using wire brushes to remove metal burrs, shavings and any other contaminants from the surface of the part.
FAQs about Powder Coating
Unlike liquid paint, powder coating offers a more durable finish, ensuring longevity. It adheres better, reduces environmental impact with near-zero VOCs, and produces fewer imperfections like runs or sags.
Most metal CNC parts are prime candidates. However, material and design intricacies can affect suitability. Consultation with experts is recommended before proceeding.
With proper care, powder-coated surfaces can remain vibrant and protective for decades. They resist rust, chips, and scratches more efficiently than most paints.
Bead blasting and powder coating are two different processes used in surface finishing. Bead blasting involves propelling tiny abrasive particles quickly to remove surface contaminants and produce a smooth and clean finish. It is commonly used to prepare surfaces for painting or coating.
On the other hand, powder coating is a method in which a dry powder is applied to a surface electrostatically and then cured under heat to form a hard, durable coating. Unlike traditional liquid paint, powder coating does not require a solvent and produces a thicker and more even finish. Both techniques are advantageous and widely used in various industries for different applications.
