What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a finishing process that bakes powdered plastic onto a statically charged metal surface. It looks similar to paint but is more durable. The coat is hard and abrasion-resistant.

eMachineShop offers the following textures and colors:

  • Gloss, Matte, Texture and Metallic.
  • Orange, Red, Purple, Pink, Green, Blue, Brown, Tan and Yellow.

Considerations when designing powder coated parts

  • Mechanical finishing before powder coating is not usually required as the coating covers and smoothes the surface.
  • Powder coating typically adds 0.001″ – 0.003″ to each coated surface and slightly rounds edges.
  • Textured and matte finishes hide scratches and abrasions better than gloss.
  • Deep pockets and inside corners may not be coated due to the electrostatic process.
  • A small amount of powder may accumulate in holes, which may interfere with mating parts and threading. Plugging, redrilling or retapping can optionally be requested.
