The metal fence materials can be dipped in a container of electro-statically charged dry powder or the charged powder is sprayed directly onto the metals. The coated fence material is then placed in an oven where the powder particles are literally melted and then form a smooth continuous finish that bonds to the metal.
A frequently overlooked advantage of the powder coating process is that it is somewhat environmentally friendly. The powder coating process eliminates wet paint solvents acting as a medium that eventually must evaporate into the atmosphere during a paint drying process. If you are environmentally conscious you will be keen on this fact of the powder coating process.
Powder coated aluminum fence is considered to be in the decorative category by fence professionals. It is commonly seen, in your mind's eye, as in common with traditional looking wrought iron fencing. It is manufactured in a variety of styles and colors. It has very broad range of application for uses such as pools, apartments and office buildings and backyards, and countless more.
