What is a zinc primer finish?

A zinc primer is a spray on coating that goes on before the powder-coating finish. Zinc rich primers are unique from regular primers because they contain zinc which has highly sacrificial anodic properties. High concentrations of zinc dust act sacrificially when in direct contact with steel by providing cathodic protection and galvanizing properties. Simply put, […]

What is a powder coat finish?

A powder coated finish provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can and are more resistant to impact, moisture, ultraviolet light, and weather which reduces the possibility of scratches, corrosion and fading. Our powder coating finish utilizes a process of “dry” painting or coating a metal part with a polyester resin. This polyester resin […]

What is hot-dip galvanizing?

The process of hot-dip galvanizing results in a metallurgical bond between zinc and steel. It is the process of coating steel with zinc by immersing the steel in abath of molten zinc. The result of this process protects the steel from corrosion. Galvanized steel is widely used in applications where corrosion resistance is needed without […]
