Automotive Powder Coating for Enhanced Corrosion Protection

Automotive powder coating benefits your bottom line and marketing efforts due to its cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. Powder coating is used on metal surfaces that can hold an electrostatic charge, such as aluminum wheels, before baking a high-temp powder onto the surface. It’s one of the most common applications in the automotive industry to help with chemical resistance by applying a high heat-resistance powder.

Take a look at a few of these automotive powder coating applications.

Aluminum Wheels

Automotive powder coating is common on aluminum wheels. The biggest reason why people prefer powder coating on wheels? It performs much better on rims and wheels than liquid paint. The application process lends to better corrosion resistance. It’s also environmentally friendly compared to liquid paints due to a lack of VOCs in the powder coat.

Powder solutions are much more durable and perform better on aluminum wheels, and they are also fully customizable with different colors. This gives you the look you want without sacrificing performance or durability.

Motorcycle Parts

Another common automotive powder coating is for motorcycle parts. Powder coating application includes shells, wheels, or any metal part in between. Similar to powder solutions for wheels and rims, motorcycle enthusiasts prefer powder over liquid paint because of its high-performance quality and durability. This application is especially important with bikes because most motorcycle parts are exposed to the elements and often at high speeds. 

Automotive powder coating also gives you customization options while keeping the frame and parts of your motorcycle safe from harsh weather conditions and extreme temperatures. In addition, automotive powder coating is easy to apply and more cost-effective, which makes it a superior option for your motorcycle’s frame and parts.
