“I want to powder coat a steel motorcycle frame. However I am hearing conflicting opinions regarding polyester powder. I have been told that it does not penetrate the metal, so when it chips, the frame will sweat and corrode. I have heard there are new techniques that penetrate the metal, and tend to dent rather than chip.”


“Most all powder coatings are organic finishes and none “penetrate” the surface of the part being coated. However, they all have great adhesion characteristics if applied to a properly pretreated surface. Contact your material supplier for more information on the recommended pretreatment.”
