Creative Steel Coatings

Powder coating:
A powder coat finish is baked on with the resulting finish being smooth and highly durable. This coating can produce a thicker coating without running or sagging like traditional paint can. Powder coating is sprayed on using a dry powder that does not require a liquid solvent. Due to no liquid solvent being required, the coating process is better for the environment because less emissions of volatile organic compounds are being created.
We also offer thermoplastic powder coating. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

Galvanized steel is a type of coating known for its strength and durability. The term galvanized means the steel has been coated with a protective layer of zinc to prevent rust and corrosion. Galvanized steel can stand up to harsh weather and years of abuse. This type of coated steel can cost significantly more than other types of coatings offered.

Using paint to cover your steel railing, gate, or stairs is the cheapest choice for coatings. There is a multitude of color choices offered. Even with a protective coating, steel eventually rusts. Regular painting and maintenance can delay the process, though.
