The dominant reason companies rely on Aegis is our experience, expertise and knowledge of powder coating powders. Having the right powder is crucial for achieving a protective coating that meets and-or exceeds your specifications. It all starts with matching the powder coating properties for the intended usage, or application.

Powder coating is sprayed on metal materials that have an electrostatic charge. To make sure the powder coating bonds and adheres to the metal surface properly it is imperative the surface is clean. In addition to cleaning and sandblasting, some applications require a primer for a smooth, even surface. On materials that have already been sandblasted and transported for powder coating, we take an added step. We always give the material a quick blast to remove any surface contaminants from transportation, prior to powder coating.
