Powder Coating

Powder coating is a process wherein paint in the form of powder is charged electrostatically and sprayed onto metal or aluminum surfaces and baked in an oven. To ensure a high quality, durable finish we employ a 4 step powder coating process:

  1. Sand blast
  2. Phosphate wash
  3. Prime with zinc rich powder
  4. Powder coat with TGIC polyester paint



Anodizing is an electrochemical process that forms a protective coating of aluminum oxide on the surface of aluminum resulting in a hard, long lasting finish.


Hot-Dipped Galvanizing

The process of hot dipped galvanizing requires dipping steel parts into a vat of hot molten zinc resulting in a very tough coating.
