Powder for metal coatings comes in many different colors, textures, and looks. They are essentially liquid coating in a powdered form.  Powders are made from mostly polyester and urethanes which give them their durability and UV resistance from fading, however, there are epoxies and hybrids as well. Most are just a single-stage application. Some are two-stage or colors that require a clear coat.

Depending on the condition of your project it’s important to know which powder will work best for you.  Watch this video playlist to learn it all in just a few minutes!
