Flexibility and Chemical Resistance

Powder coating can be a tremendously adaptable type of coating, offering flexibility both physically and in what it can be applied to. This type of coating is used in a vast number of applications thanks to this versatility, and boating and marine equipment are no different. The different media that can be used in this coating – glass beads, coarse sand, medium sand and more – is a large factor in this versatility.

The other factor is the wide range of chemical resistance that powder coating can offer. This is part of why it is so widely used in industrial applications, but also what gives it an added benefit for boats. Any water-faring vessel is at risk of being exposed to different chemical presences, even in relatively clean water.

This is often a large part of why boats of all sizes are so susceptible to wear or rust. The durability of using a strong powder-based coating is increasing chemical resistance. Coupled with how many different surfaces a powder-based coat can be applied to makes it a great choice for boats and marine vehicles of all kinds.

Impact Resistance and Durability

It is not just versatility that powder-based coating offers, but durability, too. A lot of this is thanks to the chemical resistance outlined above. Not only that, but powder coating is used in some of the most intensive industrial operations, exposing it not just to a variety of chemicals, but extremely high temperatures and impact.
Typically, powder-coated equipment and products are more resistant to wear from moisture, impact, chemicals, weathering, fading, and corrosion. This means that a powder-coated finish is an ideal choice for boats and other water-based equipment.

A High-Quality Finish

Versatility and durability are not the only benefits for boats. A powder-based coating is also perfect for creating an attractive and impressive finish on boats of all kinds. Powder coats are available in almost any color, not to mention almost any texture. This gives you the opportunity to truly customize and perfect your boat with the added benefits of enhanced strength.
