“If I have a trellis powder coated and delivered to my project in 2 pieces and then welded together, due to its size, is it possible to field apply a powder coating to the welded areas?”


“Since the parts need to bake out at 305+ degrees, there is no way of performing powder coating in the field . There is a “flame coater” that sprays molten powder towards a surface, but this is used with thermoplastic coatings (i.e. PVC, Nylon, Polyethylene, etc.). An appropriate liquid touch-up paint can be used, but this material must be compatible with the powder coating basecoat. Check with your powder material supplier or the painter for an appropriate liquid touch-up material. You may want to scuff the surface before applying the liquid touch-up paint.”
