Iron is affordable, abundant, workable and used to produce countless items, but products made with iron require a durable finish coating. Unfinished products made of iron are prone to corrosion and susceptible to wear. If you manufacture products using iron, you need protection you can depend on, and powder coating provides the perfect solution. At Keystone Koating, we have more than 30 years of experience powder coating cast iron and wrought iron products, and we offer multiple customization options to meet your unique needs.
Can Iron Be Powder Coated?
Iron can be powder coated and should be to ensure your materials last for years to come. Whether your products are intended for indoor or outdoor use, powder coating is an excellent way to protect them from the elements and potential damage. Powder coating is suitable for iron products of almost any shape and size. It forms a strong bond and is resistant to chipping, scratching and wear. The condition of the metal is vital for the best results, so surface preparation and pretreatment are often necessary.
The Advantages of Powder Coating Iron
Powder coating is a versatile finish suited for products in the commercial, industrial, municipal and educational sectors along with virtually any other sectors you can imagine. Compared to paint, powder coating is an excellent choice. It leads to a lasting finish, and the powders available are rated to withstand the toughest conditions. Powder coating is available in range of stock colors but also offers more freedom of design with different texturizing options and custom color matching.
Our Iron Powder Coating Process
While we tailor our work to each specific order to get the most cost-effective solutions and the best results, our iron powder coating process typically includes:
- Blasting: We remove any residues leftover from the manufacturing process or previous coatings.
- Pretreatment: For surface preparation, we offer eight-stage pretreatment that increases durability.
- Priming: As a corrosive metal, iron products benefit from the application of a primer before coating.
- Coating: After any necessary masking, we’ll apply powder to your exact specifications.
- Curing: We’ve perfected our process to ensure an even cure, and we perform multiple quality checks.
