Powder coating has certainly gained wide acceptance in various industries that range from appliance manufacturing to sporting goods supplies. Even everyday products can now be subjected to powder coating processes. The powder coating process is also often known as dry painting because of the method it uses in applying protective color finishes on the product. Pigments and resins are used in the process with the help of static energy and heat. Is powder coating golf equipment the right way to go?

Superior Coating

Do you agree that powder coating is superior? With the amount of investment that you placed on your golf equipment, don’t you think it deserves superior coating? But why is powder coating considered superior?

Essentially, powder coating is considered as an advanced process of applying decorative and protective finishes on almost all types of metals used by industries and consumers alike. The powder is actually a mixture of finely ground pigment and resin particles that have been electrostatically sprayed on the surface of the material that needs coating.

As the charged powder particles hit the surface of the material, it begins to adhere. The powder will then be heated to ensure that it fuses onto the material surface to create a smoot finish. Heating is normally done with a curing oven to ensure that the resulting coat is durable, uniform, attractive, and high quality. The superior quality of powder coating makes it one of the fastest growing finishing methods today. So, shouldn’t your golf equipment get superior coating?

Track Record of Quality

The truth is that powder coating is not a completely new finishing process. This process was first introduced in the mid-1950s and gained popularity by the 1980’s up until the 1990’s where it became an established part of the coating industry.

The track record of quality provided by powder coating has allowed it to extend its reach to the farming industry where farmers have powder coated farm equipment like tractors. For fitness enthusiasts, golf clubs, golf carts, and other equipment and sporting goods have been the subject of powder coating. In commercial shops, offices, homes, and industries, almost every piece of equipment, tool, or accessory can undergo powder coating. Why is it preferred?

Durable Coating

The preference for powder coating by businesses, industries, and consumers is based on the durable, long lasting, economical, and high quality finish that it delivers. It is equally important to note that surfaces that have been powder coated become resistant to chipping, fading, wearing, and scratching compared to other types of finishing processes.

When it comes to color selection, you will have virtually unlimited choices with satin, high gloss, gloss, flat, and metallic finish among others. The colors produced by powder coating are also brighter and more vibrant. There are also a variety of texture selections that can be chosen so that imperfections of the surface can be hidden.

Turnaround Time

Just how long will it take to get your equipment powder coated? Estimating the turnaround time would be quite difficult, but on the average, this would be anywhere from 3 to 4 days if done by a professional. This can of course extend to 8 to 10 days depending on the actual amount of work you want done.

The good thing with allowing professional do the job is that you can be sure that aside from quality, they exert an effort to shorten the turnaround time. Normally, 2 weeks would be the longest time that you would have to wait to have your equipment powder coated. Some professionals do accept rush jobs, but you would have to pay an extra charge of roughly 50% of the original amount.
