Powder coating has many advantages that spray paint cannot match. Recently, we explained what it was and how it works, but now, we want to help you understand what items can be powder coated.
While this method is commonly used on metal items to achieve an impressive finish, this durable option is often seen in automobiles and more. To explore your options, discover what can be powder coated below.
Wheels and rims
One of, if not the most, popular powder coated items is the wheels, rims and hubs of a car and/or motorcycle. At Bodytech Automotive, we deliver many restoration projects and this service is one we are often requested.
It’s a great way to restore and bring a car back to life. Powder coating can create a fresh coat of colour to an old set of rims, wheels or hub caps. By sandblasting and cleaning the original coat, a new layer of powder coating will be added, revamping it entirely and giving it a more durable finish.
Because of its durability, it is highly recommended for metal objects and surfaces. This makes it ideal for automotive restorations as it is suited to cars, motorcycles, bicycles, household appliances, machinery and parts alike.
Furthermore, it can also be a simple yet effective way to add further interest to your car, motorbike or truck. Adding a particular colour to the wheels can be the ultimate way to customise and make your ride stand out.
Car, truck and motorcycle parts
Besides the wheels and rims, other parts of the car are also available for powder coating. Like the wheels, powder coating can transform other features of a car, truck or motorbike to achieve a custom bespoke design.
Whether a part needs a fresh coating, restoration or a different colour from the rest, our team can help you achieve your goal. Plus, you can even get particular parts done in addition to your wheels, creating a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing colour scheme.
Car and truck parts that can be powder coated include:
- Side rails
- Roof and metal racks
- Nerf bars
- Bull and nudge bars
- Chassis frame
- Radiator grills
- Ute trays and beds
Motorcycle parts that can be powder coated include:
- Sissy bar
- Engine cover
- Motorcycle frame
- Brackets and bolts
Although it is popular for car restorations and motorcycle parts, powder coating is a common practice that isn’t restricted to only automobiles. It is well suited to several metal objects found in households too.
From homeware to furniture, certain items in your very own house may be powder coated. It is tough and aesthetically pleasing, making it resistible to everyday wear and tear. If it is made from metal and has a vibrant and smooth painted finish, there is a good chance it is powder coating work.
Commonly powder coated items include:
- Bathroom taps and accessories
- Metal benches
- Fridges and freezers
- Lawn ornaments
