A popular coating for industrial components, powder coating is the electrostatic application of a dry powder to a surface which is then cured to form a protective layer that prevents destructive materials from penetrating and reaching the surface. Powder coating meets rigid compliance regulations with minimal raw material waste and VOC emissions, making it exceedingly environmentally-friendly. It also provides maximum protection against chipping and scratching that can last many years even in harsh conditions. Further, it is available in countless color options to complement any customer application.

While also offering an extra layer of protection to surfaces, galvanizing is instead achieved by adding a layer of zinc coating through a hot dipping process, providing a tough armor to safeguard against rust and corrosion. Galvanized surfaces are thicker and require less maintenance. In addition, galvanizing can be applied quickly, typically costs less than powder coating, and can protect steel surfaces for 50 years or more.
