The Process

First, your furniture or other items will be stripped of its existing paint with media blasting. Garnet media blasting is more effective than sand blasting because it can more easily remove the paint without posing a risk to your furniture. Once the paint has been removed, the powder coating process can start.

The first step of the powder coating process is to add compounds to your furniture that will protect it from rusting. Next, a layer of powder is applied to your furniture using electrostatic charge. Finally, your furniture will be heated at 400 degrees for about twenty minutes. This creates a smooth, attractive surface that will make your furniture look like new.

One of the biggest reasons people choose media blasting and powder coating is also one of the biggest advantages of this process. Powder coating allows you to completely restore even the most rusted furniture. This means you won’t have to sacrifice your beloved iron pieces when they start to look worn. Garnet allows you to strip imperfections and rejuvenate your iron furniture.

Another advantage of this process is that it can be used on a variety of products. While in the past powder coating was reserved for metal, it can now be used on certain ceramics and even a few types of wood. Also, your powder coating can be chosen in a wide variety of colors, meaning you can either restore your furniture’s original look or give it a completely new aesthetic.
