Powder Coating on Steel

Powder coated steel offers significant advantages over paint. For products intended for either interior and exterior use, powder coated steel delivers exceptional durability with a range of options to match any design specification. At Keystone Koating, we provide precision, high volume powder coating for products made from steel of any type. With two facilities and six separate spraying systems, we can process steel items in large dimensions with fast turnaround times from start to finish.

The Benefits of Powder Coated Steel

Steel is excellent for building but susceptible to damage from a range of natural and manufactured elements. Powder coating uses a combination of positively charged fluidized powder and a negative charge fixed to your steel products to create an electrostatic bond. This bond holds throughout curing and provides complete coverage — much more effective than painting. 

In addition to a layer of protection, powder coating stainless steel and other steel offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Resistance to corrosion: We use coatings tested under severe conditions for maximum resistance to corrosion from salt, moisture and chemicals.
  • Prevention against damage: Powder coating provides a hardened outer layer resistant to cracking, bubbling, peeling, chipping and other types of wear.
  • Care for the environment: While paint produces destructive compounds and pollutants, powder coating is an eco-friendly process that is virtually pollutant-free.

Difference Between Powder Coated Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel

The processes for powder coating stainless steel and powder coating carbon steel follow many of the same steps, but the materials involved can vary. Metals with different compositions can have reactions to powders and treatments, and the right selection is critical to ensure a lasting coat and prevent delays in production.

The primary differences between powder coating these metals include:

  • Stainless steel: Stainless steel is resistant to natural corrosion, but if you plan on blasting for surface preparation, you must choose the right abrasives to prevent galvanic corrosion.
  • Carbon steel: Carbon steel is strong but susceptible to corrosion. For powder coating steel and regular carbon steel, you should consider adding a zinc-rich primer coat. (Particularly in outdoor environments.)
