Decorative & Functional Coating Applications

Powder Coating

Wright Coating Technologies offers four (4) unique Powder Coating lines to match your job requirements. All four lines incorporate automated and manual processing. There is a wide array of colors available for both functional and aesthetic applications. 

Our Commercial Powder Coating is extensive, impressive and one of our most requested specialty coatings. 

Applications are also available for applying Epoxies, Polyesters, Urethanes, Vinyl, and Nylons.

Powder Coating is a type of dry coating that is a free-flowing, dry powder and does not require a solvent. Applied electrostatically or by fluidized bed, it is cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin.” It may be Thermoplastic or Thermoset polymer which is much tougher than conventional paint. In addition to metal Powder Coating, Wright Coating Technologies offers “Classic Kote®,” a process for Powder Coating of plastic substrates.

  • Power Coating Color Swatches
  • Powder Coating


There are several advantages to powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:

  • Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC)
  • Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging
  • Powder coating overspray can be recycled making it possible to achieve nearly 100% use
  • Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings
  • Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items
  • A wide range of specialty effects are easily accomplished which would be impossible with other coating processes
  • Able to handle small parts up to 26” x 12” x 52”

Application Methods

Powder Coating on MetalEpoxy (Electrostatic Spray) – Epoxy based Electrostatic Spray powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates, i.e. steel & aluminum, for a wide variety of applications from corrosion. Epoxy coatings are Thermoset Polymer coatings. They come under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. Epoxy based Electrostatic Spray powder coating is applied through a spray process where the part is electrostatically sprayed with a dry powder that is fluidized with air and then is post cured. Electrostatic Sprayed Epoxy is generally applied at a thickness ranging from 1.5 – 4.5 mils (thousandths of an inch). The name “Epoxy” is due to resin cross-linking and the application method, which is different from a conventional paint. The resin and hardener components in the dry powder form do not react in normal storage conditions. Typical coating application temperatures are usually in the range of 180°C to 250 °C (360°F to 480 °F). Epoxy based powders are not recommended for exterior type applications.

Epoxy (Fluid Bed) – Epoxy based Fluid Bed powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates, i.e. steel & aluminum, for a wide variety of applications from corrosion. Epoxy Fluid Bed coatings are Thermoset Polymer coatings. They come under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. The Fluid Bed process is generally used when a part requires a thicker coating as compared to electrostatic spray powder coating. The Fluid Bed Epoxy coating is applied through a dip process where the part is preheated and dipped into a dry powder that is fluidized with air and then post cured. Fluid Bed Epoxy is generally applied at a thickness ranging from 5 – 30 mils (thousandths of an inch). The name “Epoxy” is due to resin cross-linking and the application method, which is different from a conventional paint. The resin and hardener components in the dry powder form do not react in normal storage conditions. Typical Epoxy coating application temperatures are usually in the range of 180°C to 250 °C (360°F to 480 °F). Epoxy based powders are not recommended for exterior type applications.

Polyester (Electrostatic Spray) – Polyester based Electrostatic Spray powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates, i.e. steel & aluminum, for a wide variety of applications from corrosion. Polyester coatings are Thermoset Polymer coatings. They come under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. Polyester Electrostatic spray powder coating is applied through a spray process where the part is electrostatically sprayed with a dry powder that is fluidized with air and then is post cured. Electrostatic Sprayed Polyester is generally applied at a thickness ranging from 1.5 – 4.5 mils (thousandths of an inch). The name Polyester is due to resin cross-linking and the application method, which is different from a conventional paint. The resin and hardener components in the dry powder form do not react in normal storage conditions. Typical coating application temperatures are usually in the range of 180°C to 250 °C (360°F to 480 °F). Polyester based powders are recommended for both interior and exterior type applications.
