Why is it Essential to have a Proper Care of Powdered Surfaces.

By now you may have heard of the cutting edge technology known as “powder coating.” It’s a new way of applying color that’s vastly superior to good old-fashioned painting. This is how we apply powder coat to TOP Security Doors.

By using this, the door will be incredibly smooth and evenly distributed, the electrostatic attraction guarantees that the distribution of powder is completely uniform, providing a much smoother and more even finish than is possible with paint.

Besides, Powder coat is much harder than paint, meaning significantly greater scratch and chip resistance, and generally better durability. Powder coated doors are rust-free, and have been tested to exceed 4,000 hours of salt spray exposure. Moreover, a scratch in screen door paint will decay or rust, lift the surrounding paint, and spread over time. But, if somehow you do manage to scratch powder coat, unlike a painted screen door, it’s so well bonded to the frame that the scratch will never expand. And a powder coated door doesn’t need repainting – ever.

Super Adhesion

Because of the pretreatment process and the intense heat of curing, powder coat sticks to a screen door frame much better than paint possibly can, helping to make it extraordinarily resistant to chipping.

Extreme Flexibility

Unlike paint, powder coat won’t crack if the metal it covers flexes a little. Published flexibility tests demonstrate that powder coat can stretch 100-800 percent before cracking or flaking occurs.

Unparalleled Corrosion Protection

Powder coat can be put on 4 to 10 times thicker than paint; this extra thickness helps protect the metal underneath from corrosion. Additionally, powder coat is free from the porosity caused by evaporation when paint dries, further protecting the screen door underneath from corrosive elements.

Strongest Most Durable Finish

Powder coating ensures that you have the most durable finish because natural wood and vinyl can’t be powder coated. For instance, vinyl can’t withstand the extreme curing temperatures necessary for bonding. So neither a wood screen door nor a vinyl screen door is suitable for powder coating. Can aluminum be powder coated? Thankfully, aluminum is ideally suited to the process. And this means that, out of all of the different possible screen door materials, a powder coated screen door has to be a durable screen door made of aluminum, the strongest and most long-lasting material available.
