Why Use Powder Coating?

Powder coating is similar to paint, but there is one significant difference. While paint contains solvents, powder coating comes in a liquid-free granular form consisting of a mixture of resin and finely ground pigment particles. Users apply the coating by electrostatically spraying it onto the surface of the workpiece, then curing it to strengthen the finish. 

Reasons to Use Powder Coating on Gym Equipment

Applying a powder-coated finish to gym equipment provides numerous benefits.

Reliable Protection

Consider how many times per day gym visitors handle a piece of gym equipment. This heavy use can cause scratches and accelerated wear and tear. A thick powder-coated finish is long-lasting and protects the underlying metal material, maximizing the return on investment. 

Corrosion Resistance

Fingerprints and perspiration are significant factors contributing to accelerated rust and corrosion formation on metal surfaces. Powder coating creates an impenetrable barrier that keeps moisture away from the underlying metal surfaces of gym equipment. 

Customization Possibilities

Powder-coated finishes don’t have to be bland, dull or unimaginative. They’re available in multiple colors, textures and gloss options ranging from matte to shiny. You can also include your business’s name or logo to maximize the branding potential. 


Nowadays, gym visitors have legitimate concerns about health and sanitation in these enclosed environments where many people exercise. Antimicrobial powder coatings are available that resist the spreading of microorganisms like bacteria, viruses and fungi. You could even include this fact in your marketing messaging to gain a competitive advantage. 

What Types of Gym Equipment Is Compatible With Powder Coating?

You can apply powder coating to just about any metal surface, making it a viable finishing option for a wide range of gym equipment:

  • Barbells
  • Dumbbells
  • Racks
  • Stationary bikes
  • Rowing machines
  • Ellipticals
  • Power rigs
