The powder coating process uses dry, free-flowing powder that is applied either by fluidized bed or electrostatically. When the coating is cured under heat, it forms into a much more rugged coating than conventional paint, and has a very aesthetically pleasing, durable finish. Sometimes you need more than just traditional powder coating – that’s where Heat Resistant Powder Coating comes in. It’s even more rugged and durable in its ability to resist abrasion and corrosion. Heat Resistant Powder Coating can withstand heat up to 1200°F.

When we initially tested our Heat Resistant Powder Coating, we cranked the heat up to 1100°F and exposed the material to salt and humidity for 240 hours. At the end of the test, the material had retained most of its color and gloss and there were no signs of degrading or cracking. This type of ruggedness makes the coating perfect for applications that are exposed to high heat, i.e. the Automotive and Industrial industries. Some common applications are:

- Grills

- Generators

- Mufflers

- Wood/pellet burning stoves and fireplace inserts

- Automotive splines

- Exhaust pipes

-Lighting fixtures

Surfaces that are likely to be exposed to heat that is greater than 500°F should use Heat Resistant Powder Coating. Like our conventional coating, we offer many different colors and it can be applies with a smooth, vein, or textured finish.

At Wright Coating Technologies in Kalamazoo, we have been a specialty coating applicator in Michigan for over 37 years. We have expertise in the coating, assembly, and/or secondary operation for many industries – from Furniture to Automotive and everything in between.
