“Please explain the process in powder coating a 24 ga. rolling steel door at the factory vs elecrostatic field application paint. Which is better, why, and the exact process they would go through. I am needing this for an architect. Thanks for your help!! “


“Powder coating is a factory applied finish that employs several steps (wash & pretreat, dry, spray, and bake cure). Electrostatic-field applied finishes use liquid coatings that are either air-dried or two component cured. Functionally, factory-applied powder coatings will outperform most field applied liquid finishes because of the excellent surface preparations and better properties of powder coatings. Powder coatings cannot be applied reliably in the field, especially to a rolling steel door. “
