The dry coating process has become increasingly popular due to its efficiency, durability, and minimal effects on the environment. For companies that require a high-quality durable finish, powder coating has become a popular solution. Industrial applications of powder coating has been increasing in many industries, including construction, appliance, lawn and garden, consumer goods, automotive and the military.


Within the architecture and construction industry, powder coating is a popular method for finishing aluminum extrusions. These extrusions are commonly used in a variety of applications, including windows, doorframes, building facades, and modular furniture. Additionally, powder coating is often used on highway projects for items such as light poles, guard rails, road signs, and fencing. This durable and long-lasting finish helps to protect these structures from the elements and wear and tear over time.


The appliance industry uses powder coatings on refrigerators, washer tops and lids, dryer drums, air-conditioner cabinets, water heaters, range housings, vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, microwave oven cavities, and freezer cabinets. In some applications, pre-coated blank stock is coated and then post-formed in the desired shape. Even, thin films with high levels of resistance to chips, impact, detergents, and chemicals are critical to the appliance industry.

Lawn & Garden Products

Powder coating is a popular choice for protecting outdoor home products from the elements, including those used for lawn and garden maintenance. This includes lawnmowers, wheelbarrows, snowblowers, snow shovels, barbecue grills, propane tanks, and garden tools, as well as most metal patio furniture. With its durable and weather-resistant finish, powder coating helps ensure that these items last for years to come.

Everyday Consumer Goods

The general consumer goods industry encompasses a wide range of products that benefit from powder coating. From lighting fixtures and electrical components to tractors and agricultural equipment, powder coating provides a durable and attractive finish. Schools, sports enthusiasts, office workers, parents, and homeowners all benefit from the use of powder coated products, including bleachers, soccer goals, golf clubs, file drawers, baby strollers, and satellite dishes. With its versatility and durability, powder coating has become a popular choice for a variety of consumer goods.

Military & Defense Equipment

The military has been a long-time user of powder coatings, particularly in the Naval Air Force rehabilitation and repair facilities. Powder coatings have been used to recoat various parts of ships, including water-tight doors, ammo lockers, railing, bunks, and lockers. Additionally, military ordinance is also powder coated, and Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) powders are used on military vehicles. As the industry continues to prioritize limiting VOC emissions, the demand for powder coatings in military hardware is expected to grow in the coming years.
