Sandblasting Tools before Powder Coating gives more Protection

Posted on: January 13th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Whether you are painting a car part, or having something powder coated it’s important that you have the piece sandblasted before you have it protectively coated. Sandblasting is an important service that prepares the pieces before powder coat and helps achieve the best possible protective finish in the end. It’s simple for a skilled company to do, and it’s relatively inexpensive as well.

Get an Even Coat

The major benefit of sandblasting is that it evenly cleans up the product that is being hit by the abrasive spray. It’s sprayed all over the surface and it roughs it all up at the same time. The end result is a surface that’s been roughed up all over the place.

This allows the coating to stick to it readily and will help you avoid any patchy spots where the coating did not want to stick. This is especially important if you are trying to coat a part that’s greasy or has a glossy finish before you have the work done. If that sheen is not broken through you simply won’t be able to coat it properly.

Have Your Coater Do the Work

When you pay to have something powder coated you want to make sure the coating is going to go on as completely and evenly as possible. That’s why you have to pay for sandblasting before you get the coated put on.

Because these two services go hand in hand, many larger companies like Byers Bush offer both at the same time. When you find out about a company that offers both of these things at once, it’s a good idea to have both done at once. Not only will you likely qualify for mild discounts since you are ordering multiple services, but you’ll get your parts back faster.

If you have to rely on two different companies to clean off your parts and then coat them with the powdercoat, you’re simply going to have to wait longer before you get the finished product. There will be a waiting period in between the two services and you’ll be stuck waiting several days or even weeks in some instances, rather than the short period that the single company quoted you.

When dealing with multiple companies there is also more room for error as well. If the coating falls apart and you’re left with a poor looking product there isn’t a whole lot you can do about it. Both of the companies will likely try to blame the other and you’ll have a hard time proving which company made the mistake.

This makes it harder having the problem fixed. When you work with the same company the entire time they accept more responsibility for any errors that occur after the application and that’s the type of support that you want.

There are plenty of different items that you can have sandblasted. Any metal product that needs to be cleaned up can be treated with sandblasting to help improve any protective treatment that it gets and to get it very clean.

Save Time

While you could have many of your projects sanded down through more traditional means, sandblasting is faster and more effective. You won’t have to worry about missed spots and you won’t have to pay employees to take all the time to sand the items down.

When you work with professionals you’ll get the cleaned items in less time and they’ll be ready to be painted or whatever it is that you want to do with them. When you’re running a business time is money, and you’ll save a bit of both when you work with professionals to get your sandblasting services.

Look around for local providers and keep a few on file for when you need sandblasting next. It takes time to find a good company to work with, but when you do you’ll know who to go with every time that you have a project that needs completing.

Contact Byers Bush, a professional company in sandblasting metal equipment, and get your equipment sandblasted before powder coat it to achieves the best possible protection for your equipment.

Protect your Beachfront Equipment with Plascoat PPA 571

Posted on: January 11th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Restaurants, diners and clubs out on the beach all know just how expensive tables and chairs can be. Not only are all the tables and chairs expensive to purchase but they wear out quickly when put outside by the ocean.

The ocean breeze carries salt in it that sparks the creation of rust quickly and will rapidly eat through tables and other outdoor equipment if it isn’t properly protected against. That’s why it makes so much sense to spend a bit more when getting outdoor tables and chairs to protect them with Plascoat PPA 571.

What is PPA 571?

PPA 571 is a powerful powder coating treatment that’s made to stand up against salt water and humidity that are always present out by the ocean. The treatment is tested with a constant salt water spray to see how long it can effectively prevent against rust and it’s shown to last many years when properly taken care of.

Spend Money to Save Money

While this premium coating is going to cost you more than a simple coating of paint, it’s going to last much longer as well. Spending a bit more money on the premium coating will ensure that the furniture is going to hold up for years more than it otherwise would.

While you’ll invest a bit more money to start off with, that money is going to keep you going for a longer period of time. When you divide the amount you spent by the number of years that your investment lasted, you’ll see that you actually saved money in the long run versus going with a less expensive treatment.

Dealing with a Reputable Company

You could hire the cheapest powder coating specialist in your area to handle the need, but that isn’t going to do you much good when it comes to actually protecting your furniture. That’s because the application won’t be done as well. It’s also less likely that the company will have the Plascoat PPA 571 powder treatment that’s proven to work so well.

When you deal with a large company with a proven track record you get a guaranteed quality coating, and you get the support and skill to make sure everything goes right. You also get more color options to choose from. With all the additional color options you’ll be able to pick and choose the exact hues that you want all your tables and chairs to be. You can match them to the decor around your building and you won’t have to be quite as selective when it comes to buying your furniture, because you can change the appearance of it later on.

Save on Maintenance Costs

Maintaining tables and chairs is a lot of work when they are constantly becoming rusty and wearing out. Constantly painting them, cleaning them off and repainting them once again is a lot of work. Someone has to be paid to do all that work and that often means you’re spending money each and every year to keep up your furniture when you rely on standard means of protection.

A good powder coating will last longer and it’s going to be easier to wash off as well. Graffiti will wipe off with less effort and most stains and other common problems that you would ordinarily face won’t be an issue with a thick coating. Your maintenance team isn’t going to have to work nearly as hard, and that means you’ll save some extra money.

If you run a restaurant, diner, club or hangout by the sea, and you are sick and tired of paying for the upkeep of your furniture, protect it with Plascoat PPA 571 instead of paint or some cheaper powder coating option. It will hold up better than most things you’ve tried in the past and will likely save you some money as well.

Just make sure that you work with a reliable company like Byers Bush that will do a top notch job and make sure that you have a good experience. When you’re trying to protect all the expensive furniture that your business relies on it makes a lot of sense to invest in the best possible service providers that you can.

Contact Byers Bush to get Plascoat PPA 571 powder coat treatment for your equipment that is placed near the ocean, it will protect your equipment against the harsh weather which causes rust and let your equipment lasts longer.

Maintain your Bike Rental Business Alive with Powder Coating

Posted on: January 9th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Bikes are built to last and they come with a protective coating designed to stand up to the elements for years. Unfortunately the bodies of the bikes in your rental company are going to wear out before many of the other components such as the chain that’s greased regularly. What that means is that you’ll have to replace your equipment about once every five to ten years or you’ll have to take the time to keep it all protectively coated to last.

Invest in Higher Quality Products

It almost always makes sense to pay for higher end equipment when you are running a rental shop as long as you can keep that equipment in good shape for many years. Not only will it perform more reliably over time thanks to better parts and craftsmanship, but it will also come with more comprehensive warranties and most importantly will encourage customers to use your services over your competitors. If you are offering superior equipment for rent, you will naturally be the first choice for your customers, especially if your prices are at least comparable.

As long as you are willing to spend the added money for a layer of powder coat when the first layer of paint begins to wear off the bikes and other rental equipment that you have, you can feel free to buy the quality stuff rather than the cheap items. Not only will buying quality equipment help your business bring in more customers and hold out better than the cheap stuff, but you’ll be able to justify a protective coating much easier than you would with cheap equipment.

When you spend $1,800 on a bike, it’s easy to see why you would want to protect that investment. That’s a major difference from the $150 bikes that some shops rent out, or even the mid-range $800 bikes that you’ll see at some shops.

Save Money

Even though you will likely be paying more for the higher end equipment for your shop, you’ll end up saving money when you pay for powder coating services. That’s because that expensive equipment is going to last much longer than the cheap equipment would have when you protect it with the coating.

By stretching out the number of years that you can rely on the same equipment you will ultimately spend less per year for your equipment than you would when buying lower quality stuff without the added protection.

Customize Your Equipment

Another very real benefit of using a protective coating service is that you will have the ability to customize all your equipment. You can set every one of your bikes to a custom color that will help signify your business. By doing this it will also make it much more difficult for people to steal your equipment since it will have that signature look on it.

Coatings come in many different colors, finishes and even textures. Whether you want purple and pink bikes, a golden finish or something in-between you can get just the right colors for your needs. It’s simple to get the colors that you want when you work with a reputable company like Byers Bush and you’ll love that custom look that you have in the end.

Getting your equipment customized also makes it easier to blend in additional products to your collection even if they are different brands of equipment. You can feel free to branch out a bit more and obtain different equipment brands and still keep that uniform look at your business when you get things coated.

No matter what types of bikes you rent out, if you want them to last as long as they can, you should consider getting them protectively coated. It’s relatively affordable considering all the money you will save from such as coating, and you’ll have so many options that you’ll likely have a hard time picking out the one that you want to use.

Contact Byers Bush to get your bike powder coated rather than painting it, it will protect your bike from corrosion to make it lasts longer and keep your rental bike business alive to generate more profit.

Powder Coat your Carnival Equipment for a Durable Result

Posted on: January 7th, 2016 by byersbushblog

Carnival rides are exceedingly expensive and they’re constantly left outdoors and exposed to the elements. Many carnival owners resort to painting equipment to keep it in good shape over time. While this works alright it simply doesn’t have the lasting power of a good solid powder coat. If you run a carnival or amusement park you should consider having some of your rides powder coated.

Long-Term Durability

One of the biggest benefits of protecting your equipment with a powder coat is that it will be durable and will hold up for many years, even when exposed to rain, snow and other conditions the coating will hold well. A powder coat is often thicker than paint and won’t suffer from peeling or chipping nearly as soon as paint does. That means your equipment is going to look newer and in better shape for a longer period of time before it has to be retreated.

Excellent Color Selection

Deciding to protect your equipment with a powder coat doesn’t mean that you have to give up your theme. There are tons of different color options to pick from and it’s likely that you will find just the right color and finish to satisfy your needs. You might even find some options that you simply can’t find with traditional paint.

When you work with a major provider like Byers Bush you have more options to pick from in terms of color and finish. You also know that you will be getting a high quality finish that will hold up better to heavy use than some of the other products will.

Protect What You Can

Not every piece of equipment is going to be small enough or easy enough to move to have professionally powder coated and for these parts paint is going to have to be good enough, but there are plenty of parts of your equipment that you should have no problem protecting.

The seats of the rides, the chains that support your rides, poles, rails and other smaller parts of the different rides can all be removed and powder coated for longevity. Anything that can be taken off a ride or isn’t too big in size should be simple to have powder coated and relatively affordable as well.

Save Money on Replacement Equipment

Not only will you give your carnival an updated look by keeping everything powder coated for a fresh appearance, but you’ll also extend the life of your equipment. Most of the metal and other equipment that you have is going to rust over time. That means that eventually you will have to replace parts and at some point the entire ride. This can be a significant cost to the company and something that you want to do as little as possible.

When you protectively coat your equipment it’s naturally going to last longer and remain in better condition. That’s just one more reason to maintain a steady coating on the equipment the whole time that it is in use.

As the owner of a carnival not only do you have all the rides to keep in good condition, you also have all the tools and additional equipment needed to get everything set up and running. These tools cost a significant amount of money as well and they should all be maintained to help preserve your investment.

It’s a good idea to have hand tools, dollies, jacks and other equipment powder coated when the finish starts to wear off. If you keep the equipment from getting rusty it will last much longer and will offer you more years of performance without a need for replacement.

Running a carnival is a major undertaking and it’s even more difficult when you have a bunch of rusty equipment to deal with. That’s why proper protective coatings and care have to be taken to keep everything in good condition. It still won’t be easy to keep your carnival running in tip-top shape, but you’ll have less to worry about along the way, and that’s always a good thing.

Contact Byers Bush to give your valuable carnival equipment powder coated that gives more protection against corrosion.

Customize your Motorcycle with Powder Coating

Posted on: January 5th, 2016 by byersbushblog

It’s nice to get the exact color motorcycle that you want right from the showroom floor, but many times bikes simply aren’t offered in the colors that you want, or getting them in custom colors is just too expensive to do when going through the dealership.

That’s why you should save your money and goes with custom powder coating services instead. Not only will you strengthen the weather resistance of your motorcycle by getting the coating, but you will also open up a whole world of color options that you didn’t’ even realize that you had.

Unparalleled Color Selection

Byers Bush is a major powder coating company and large companies like that are known for having many different colors to pick from when it comes to powder coat finishes. You’ll be able to pick from dozens of different colors until you find exactly the ones that you are looking for. You can even mix and match between a couple different colors for the different parts of your bike.

Save Money

There’s no reason to pay a bunch extra for custom parts and modifications when you order a new motorcycle. Instead you can simply buy a stock bike or even a bike that’s on sale and make the modifications by going through a third party company. It will likely be more affordable for you and you’ll definitely have more control over the final product.

Buy Used

Another benefit of powder coating a motorcycle is that you can buy a used product and still make it look exactly like you want it to. You typically have less control over the appearance of a used motorcycle because you can’t pick and choose features or colors like you can with a brand new product.

When you rely on another company to handle your customization you’ll be able to adjust a used bike to look exactly the way you want. It’s efficient and can help get you exactly what you want for even less money.

Enjoy Improved Durability

The last thing you want is your new bike to wear out and begin to rust away. That’s one of the reasons that so many people take care to put their bikes away when the weather gets rough outside. It’s a good reason to avoid riding in the rain as well.

When you pay to have your motorcycle powder coated you don’t have to worry about wear and tear so much. That’s because the coating is designed for harsh weather conditions. Your bike will hold up better when in the rain, the snow or anything else that you decide to subject it. While it’s still good to put your bike away when you aren’t using it and to try and keep it out of harsh weather, you’ll have that peace of mind that it is going to continue working well and remain in good condition even if it does get used in poor weather conditions.

Powder coating is a simple process and a good way to customize a motorcycle, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right option for everyone. Some people simply don’t’ want to spend the extra money for the coating. Others already have the colors that they want. If you do decide that you want a powder coat finish on your bike there are plenty of options available to you that you should consider.

Get in touch with local powder coating specialists and see which ones are can work on motorcycles and then get pricing information and find out how long you can expect to wait to get your parts back after sending them in.

Not only you do want a place that is going to powder coat your motorcycle parts, you also want a business that can handle sandblasting and even silk screening some parts. If you don’t find a place that sandblasts, you’ll have to work with two different companies to get the quality parts that you are looking for.
