The many benefits and overall cost-effectiveness of powder coating have made it a standard method of finishing for applications in various industries.


What Types of Items Are Powder Coated?




The automotive industry uses powder coating both as a basecoat and a finish for a myriad of automotive components. This includes:


  • Surface primer: Many sports and luxury car manufacturers use powder coating for intermediate coating on specific models. Additionally, trims, door handles, and bumpers also get the powder coating treatment.
  • Under-hood parts: This includes shock absorbers, oil filters, radiators, break components, battery trays, and coil springs.
  • Wheels
  • Motorbike frames
  • Public Transportation




Appliances make up for about a third of all industrial powder coating applications. Some of the most common appliances that undergo the powder coating process include:


  • Ranges, microwaves, and refrigerators: Powder coatings do well with temperature cycling without flaking or wearing off.
  • Washers and dryers: Porcelain enamel used to be the choice product for finishing these appliances, but powder coating has taken the place of this old-fashioned finish.
  • Vending machines: Vending machines deal with a lot of environmental stress, and so it’s important that they are finished with something durable and long-lasting, like powder coating.


Outdoor Products


Powder coating is definitely used for products that need to be able to withstand nature’s elements. This includes:


  • Farm equipment
  • Sports equipment
  • Outdoor furniture
