What is Powder Coating? Powder is applied to the products electrostatically adhering to the surface until it enters a curing oven.

Powder coating is a dry paint containing no solvents making it safer for the environment and workers.
How do I maintain my Powder Coat Finish? Wash the coating with mild soapy water and rinse off with clean water. Regular washing every 6 months under normal conditions, and more often in more severe marine and industrial applications will keep your powder coat looking like new. Do not use harsh abrasives or chemical degreasers.
How do I remove mild scratches and marks from my Powder Coated Products? In the same manner that you would remove mild scratches and markings from any automotive finish. The recommended process is to use a mild buffing solution or wax compound. These can be found online at places like www.autozone.com -or- www.pepboys.com.
