Frequently Asked Questions
Powder coating is an art, and thus succumbs to the criticism and curiosity of such. Hopefully the information here helps to shed some light on the powder coating process. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They will add a layer of protection, however if at any time they are scratched or nicked, it will leave the material open to corrosion.
No, it is not nearly as aggressive or protective. Unlike those coatings it will scratch and show rub marks or wear down over time with lots of traffic.
Powder coat choices with a two coat process will yield slightly more protection than the single coat processes just due to thickness. Textured colors are perceived as more durable because they are better suited to disguise chips and nicks (ie. Inner Fenders) than your Satin or Gloss coatings. Gloss is the hardest coating to make perfect. Any debri caught in the process will show due to the high level of reflection.
Powder coating is an extremely different process than paint. It is not something they can usually mix to match, you would need to look through www.prismaticpowders.com and order swatches to hold up to your color if you can’t find a suitable color online. If you have a local powder coater that can see your color in person that is probably the best route for color matching! IMPORTANT – If you want an exact paint match, you should order products from us in bare/uncoated form and work with a local body shop to match your specific vehicle.
