What materials are available for powder coating?

Materials have to meet a few requirements for powder coating: they have to be able to hold an electrostatic charge, and withstand high curing temperatures. Because of these requirements, aluminum, mild steel and stainless steel are the best candidates for powder coating. We can powder coat these materials in several different thicknesses.

  • 5052 Aluminum 0.063″-0.500”
  • 6061 Aluminum 0.063″-0.500”
  • 7075 Aluminum 0.125”-0.250″
  • AR400/500 0.119″-0.250”
  • Mild Steel 0.048″-0.500”
  • 4130 Steel 0.050″-0.250”
  • Stainless Steel 0.048″-0.500”

The powder coat application and finish will be ideal if you can adjust your design to suit any of these materials. Checkout our powder coating guidelines for more details on preparing your parts.
