Spotlight Profiles >> Part Preparation - Masking

Preparing a part properly is an essential first step for a durable powder coat. Depending on the substrate, you may require chemicals that etch the surface for proper powder adhesion, or it may require phosphating to improve corrosion resistance. Once the part is cleaned, proper masking materials are needed to protect some areas from being powder coated. The suppliers listed here can help guide you through this process. Don’t forget to tell them you found them in Powder Coated Tough!
