Powder coating care and maintenance tips
Powder coating is a very durable paint job that exceeds the benefits of regular paint and can last for many years. However, even the most durable items can eventually get wore down by use, the weather, and buildup. The best way to stop this from happening to your newly powder coating item is to make sure it is getting the proper care and needed maintenance. Since powder coating is such a high performance paint job, the care required is relatively easy as long as you know what to do and not do.
Do not clean too often: Cleaning is a good habit, but when powder coating is cleaned too much it can wear down the coating and lead to early erosion. Every three months is a good ballpark to be in when it comes to cleaning your powder coated item. The friendly staff here at Professional Plating will be happy to help if you have any questions or if your product requires special attention.
Use non-chemical cleaning products: Chemicals can cause corrosion on powder coat paint. It is best to just stick to a simple soap and water solution to remove the dirt and grime from your object.
Do not use abrasive products: Products like steel wool or scrubbing pads are harmful to powder coating and can ruin your perfect finish. Powder coated products are easy to clean and can be cleaned best with items like towels, sponges, and brushes.
If all else fails, you can always retouch up your powder coated item or get it completely recoated. Call us at Professional Plating if you aren’t sure what is best for your product and our experts will answer your question to the best of our ability
