Heat Resistant Powder Coating: Is It Right for My Project?

Heat Resistant Powder Coating
3/11/2015

Powder coating is a process in which a free-flowing, dry powder is applied either electrostatically or by fluidized bed. When cured under heat, it forms creating a much tougher coating than conventional paint, and has an attractive, durable finish. Heat Resistant Powder Coating is even more durable in resisting corrosion and abrasion. These materials can withstand heat ranging from 450°F to 1200°F.

During testing, our heat resistant powder coating was tested at 1100°F and with 240 hours of exposure to salt and humidity. The result was that the coating contained most of its color and gloss and showed no signs of cracking or degrading.

This makes the coating ideal for applications that require high heat for the industrial and automotive industries. Some example applications include:

  • Grills
  • Exhaust Pipes
  • Automotive Splines
  • Wood and Pellet Burning Stoves
  • Fireplace inserts
  • Lighting Fixtures
  • Mufflers
  • Generators

Surfaces that will be exposed to temperatures greater than 500°F should be treated with Heat Resistant Powder Coating. This coating comes in various color options and can be applied with either a smooth, textured, or vein finish.
