When considering the finish for your fabrication project, there are several options to choose from, including powder coating and paint. Paint is the more traditional approach, but comes with many limitations in color and finish. Powder coating is often the more advanced option for finishing your metal fabrication project and can often be provided at the same cost of paint. According to the Powder Coating institute, the primary benefits of powder coating are a quality appearance, improved durability, and reduced environmental impact of your products. These benefits are just a few of the many advantages to choosing powder coating for your next stainless steel fabrication project.
