What Products Can Be Powder Coated?

Powder coating can be applied to a wide variety of products, and is only held back by how evenly the dry particles adhere to a given surface. Some examples of products that are regularly powder coated include:

  • Automotive parts like car and truck wheels, bumpers, internals, and other components
  • Appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, and dryers
  • Metal furniture such as tables, chairs, and outdoor patio furniture
  • Industrial equipment such as conveyor belts, machinery parts, and storage tanks
  • Home and garden products like grills, outdoor lighting, and fencing
  • Sporting goods such as bike frames, golf clubs, and exercise equipment
  • Signs and displays, frames, display stands, and other signage

What Products Can’t Be Powder Coated?

It is important to note that the suitability of powder coating for a particular material may depend on its specific characteristics and the coating process being used. In some cases, it may be possible to apply a powder coating to a material that is not typically suitable, but this may require the use of special coatings or pretreatment processes. That being said, there are generally some product categories that cannot be powder coated, such as

  • Plastics, as the powder does not bond well to the surface and may cause the plastic to become brittle.
  • Wood, as the powder does not adhere well to the surface and may cause the wood to become damaged.
  • Glass, as the coating process may cause the glass to become brittle or shatter.
  • Non-metallic materials like rubber, fabric, or paper, as powder does not bond well to these surfaces.
