It may seem that sheet metal fabricators and ironworkers have similar jobs. Both are highly skilled trades, but they actually have different skill sets and utilize different tools and materials. Typically, ironwork is more structural and sheet metal fabrication is more functional.
Powder coating is a high-quality finish made from particles of pigment and resin that is applied with an electrostatic spray gun. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until the powder is heated in a curing oven and fused into a smooth coating. Powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery. It provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing an attractive finish.
