Powder coating is a process where a finely ground powder is sprayed at very low pressure from an electrically charged gun. The cleaned and bare metal part is grounded, the gun is charged to 10,000 volts to give the particles a very high electrical charge. The particles are instantly drawn to the part, adhering to the charged surface. The part is then baked (high-temperature cured) and, as soon as it is cooled, is ready to go.

A cured powder coated item appear to have been “dipped” in a very high gloss paint. Because of the high temperatures involved, the powder bonds to the metal, eliminating runs and sags.

We have very high-gloss coatings that never need to be waxed. Ever. Just spray with Windex and wipe off, the shine is embedded. They are unbelievable. This stuff is just amazing — powder coating is for people who want their part to LAST, never rust, and always look first rate. This is an extremely durable and scratch-resistant surface. Powder coating has the same hardness of chrome but is pliable and can bend and take a hit without chipping.

Almost every shade you can imagine. Tri-State Fabricators have solids, gloss, semi-gloss, chassis flat, translucent, clears, fluorescent and many special finishes, such as wrinkle. We can also do specialty work, combining colors and masking designs.

Two or three colors on the same piece are not impossible. We’ve done effects from monograms to candy canes. There are finishes that match metal such as cast aluminum or iron. The following are some of the “Special” things we can do.
