Why Be Normal? Get Creative with Your Powder Coated Sheet Metal Parts (Updated for 2024)

Last updated on February 9th, 2024 at 01:50 pm

Did you know you can get powder coated sheet metal parts in any color you want?

It’s true! In a world of 6,500+ powder coating color options, don't settle for basic black or generic gray with a traditional matte finish.

Life is short—what’s stopping you from having glittery aqua car turbo pipes or bright red motorcycle parts?

Make your powder coated sheet metal parts pop with unique and eye-catching customized powder coating options.

Powder Coating Is Faster and More Durable Than Traditional Paint

Between priming the surface of the part, applying multiple coats of paint, and waiting for each coat to dry, using wet paint to finish custom fabrications can be a lengthy process. Depending on the number of coats required, a two-week wet paint job might take half as long with powder coating.

Powder coating consists of applying dry powder (usually made out of thermoplastics) electrostatically to create a hard finish that is more long-lasting than wet paint. Approved Sheet Metal has powder coated sheet metal capabilities in-house, so you get your finished sheet metal parts at lightning speed.
