Atlas ironworks operates a state of the art spray booth on location.
All iron products that we manufacture can be spray painted in our shop with a color of your choice. Every piece is primed with a red oxide primer. This primer is effective in causing the paint to better adhere to the iron and help prevent rusting. Multiple coats of paint are used to make sure it will last. We also offer powder coating in place of our in-house painting.
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”.
The advantages to having your product powder coated:
1. Powder coating will typically produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.
2. Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
3. Finish is a smooth texture-free surface and last longer than conventional liquid coatings. (Source Wikipedia).
