What vehicle parts can be powder coated?
Powder coating is a process that applies a polymer resin to a surface through electrostatic spray deposition. This means that the item being powder coated receives an electrical charge to attract the coat. Therefore, any metal surface is an ideal candidate for a powder coat.
If you are wondering if powder coating is the right choice, our expert technicians have years of experience applying powder coats to vehicle parts, and we know what it takes to ensure your component gets the best possible coating. Contact us today and we’ll get you started,

How to get your auto part powder coated?
Every day we service customers located throughout Vancouver Island looking to get an item powder coated. While we cannot guarantee that your part can be powder coated, if it is made of metal there is a good chance we can apply a powder coat. The best thing to do is contact our friendly customer service department by calling our office or filling out the request a quote form on our website.
Once we receive your part, we will first clean the item through a pre-treatment process that will eliminate any grease or byproducts that have built up on the part. After the item has been thoroughly cleansed, we take the selected polymer resin and apply it to the part using an electrostatic spray gun. Once the item is fully coated, we move it to our industrial oven and begin the curing process. Curing bakes the resin to the surface and ensures that the coating will last for many years. Finally, the product is removed from the oven and left to cool.
