Powder Coating Aluminum Extrusions: Is it the Right Choice?

Author:Md. Taufiq Khan Click: Time:2020-10-23 15:40:44

When you’re deciding on a finish for your aluminum extrusions, it’s natural to consider various options.

Painting, anodizing, and powder coating all have their own unique advantages. So, which one should you choose? And why might you consider one over the other?

Today, we’re talking about powder coating aluminum extrusions. 

Let's discuss how it works, the benefits it offers, and the main reasons to consider powder coating your aluminum extrusions.

How the Powder Coating Process Works

Powder coating is the process of spraying electrostatically charged paint (in powder form) onto your extrusions. Unlike liquid paint, powder coating doesn’t require a solvent. So it’s VERY important that the surface of every extrusion is properly pre-treated.    

1) Pre-treat the Aluminum Surface

The pre-treatment process involves removing dust, grease, and any other foreign particles. That way, the technician can ensure good adhesion and the powder coat won’t flake.

2) Apply Powder to the Extrusions

The technician sprays the powder through an electrostatic spray gun. The positive charge makes the powder bond with an electrically-grounded extrusion.

3) Heat Aluminum Profiles in the Curing Oven

The technician puts the extrusions into a large curing oven. The oven bakes the extrusions until you have a uniformly-melted coating.

4) Cool the Extrusions

After the extrusions are baked, the technician removes them so they can cool off. Once cool, you’ll have a smooth, hardened coating.




What Makes Powder Coating Environmentally Friendly?

One of the main reasons powder coating can be preferable over paint is that there are no solvents or VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). That means there’s no damage to the environment while it’s being sprayed.

Unlike wet paint, the waste from powder coating isn’t hazardous. The process doesn’t produce much waste because over-sprayed powder can be collected and reused.

Should I Powder Coat Aluminum Extrusions?

Of course, the answer to this question will depend on the final application and the look you’re going for. But if you want bright colors or unique textures, powder coating can be a good choice. It is also more environmentally friendly than liquid paint, so that is another factor to consider.

If you need a colorful, environmentally-friendly finish, powder coating may be good for your project.


Benefits of using the powder coat for aluminum doors and windows

When you use the powder coat, you will get:

  • An even application that is very consistent with the finish and the color
  • A wide array of color choices that you can use for your aluminum doors and windows
  • A wide range of colors that can be applied to match the colors that are within and around the property
  • A more durable finish than is the case with timber
  • Added protection from the elements to make the metal last longer
