- Provides a durable finish to metal products
- In most cases, a lower cost option compared to standard paint
- More environmentally friendly than paint
- Available in a variety of texture and gloss options
- Parts should have hanging hole or holes (depending on the weight of the part). Parts with no holes may not be able to be powder coated
- Smooth and glossy coats will show flaws much more easily than textured coats and therefore take more time to provide. Whenever optional, selecting a textured powder coat will be a more cost effective route.
- Custom colors (e.g. matching to an existing color) will be more expensive in powder coat than with paint except at very high quantities.
- A cost effective option for custom colors
- Does not require that parts be hung from a rack and so is an option for a wider variety of shapes, sizes and weights
- Does not require baking to cure so is a better option for parts that may need multiple coats of different colors and/or for adding paint to an isolated area of a part with an existing coat or would otherwise be negatively affected by high temperatures.
- Cure time can be several days depending on the paint so lead times for painted parts are generally longer than for powder coated parts
