Metaline Powder Coating Capabilities:
Our powder coating facility handles metal objects up to 250 lb. weight, 11′ height, 5′ lengths and 4′ width
Powder Coating Usages:
- It is used to protect metals against rust
- It is used to achieve an even coat of paint on the surfaces and more aesthetic appearance
- Powder coating is used in several major industries, especially where extra layer of protection should applied on the metals to protect them from extreme temperatures or enhanced traction and amortization
Step 1 - Project Submission
Our team will discuss the project with you and understand your requirements to achieve the most accurate results. The consultation process will involve discussions related to the color, the material you provide and the finish.
Step 2 - Powder Coating
Once our team is done with consultation, the coating process will begin. The technicians will study your requirements and create detailed specification for dry powder application onto the metal.
Step 3 - Curing
Heating and curing the metal is an important part of powder coating and it is next in line. Our technicians will transfer the metal to a specialized oven and bake the material at a high temperature for a designated period.
Step 4 - Pretreating
The final step is pretreating, which involves thoroughly cleaning the metal’s surface and getting rid of pollutants.
Step 5 - Delivery
Once everything is done, we will deliver your project back to you by either land, sea or air.

What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a painting process, which is commonly used to protect various industrial metals such as iron and steel – against corrosion or other damages. The dry substance is used instead of liquid-based paint because it reduces the risk of run off and there is no drying time. The result is always an even coat across the metal surface.
The powder is applied on the metal using an electrostatic charge. Once that is done, the material is treated with a precise amount of heat and UV light exposure for optimal results.
Powder coating is frequently used in the metal, ceramic, glass, and wood fabrication industries.
Metaline shop is located in Toronto, at the heart of Canada’s largest business cluster, and minutes drive from YYZ – busiest Canadian airport. We serve customers from all industries in Ontario and across Canada. We also deliver orders and projects in the USA – we are easy to reach within less than 2 hours drive from New York state border.
The powder coating process consists of applying dry powder using an electrostatic process. The applied coating is then cured with the application of heat, and the result is a durable finish that provides protection. The dry coating creates a protective layer over the metal, protecting it from contaminants and damage.
Powder coating protects the metal, making it resistant to tearing, chipping, and scratching. It is a dry finishing process with many advantages, such as durability, quality, aesthetics, and efficiency. In addition, powder coating offers more protection when compared to paint.
Powder coating is more durable than paint. It provides a strong finish that resists wear and tear. The paint will need refinishing to stay in good condition and require a couple of layers to achieve the desired protection.
Powder coating makes metals highly persistent to rust. If the coating is damaged, moisture can penetrate the protective layer, and rust may form. Therefore, you need to touch up any cracks or scratches as soon as they appear to guarantee a rust-free finish.
Powder coating is resistant and can stand high temperatures. The heat resistant properties can range from 392 F to 1022 F. Consider high-temperature powder coating with a temperature range that best suits your project.
Powder coating is known for its durability and longevity and can last up to 20 years. However, the lifespan will depend on the environmental conditions the object is exposed to and the type of coating you use. If the metal object is exposed to UV rays, the lifespan will be shorter.
The powder coating is a speedy process, unlike wet paint, that requires drying time. However, the time needed depends on your specific project. Powder coating includes prepping, so the larger the surface you work with, the more time you need. The curing process takes from 10 to 30 minutes.
Powder coating is used to finish aluminum and steel products. Aluminum, stainless steel, electroplated steel, galvanized steel, steel alloys, and mild steel can be powder coated. In addition, powder coating is applied to titanium, brass, copper, and bronze.
Yes, you can use powder coating as a finish for aluminum. However, the metal needs to undergo special prepping prices first. The aluminum oxide layer needs to be removed, and the smooth surface needs to be roughened. This treatment option offers a wide choice of colors and finishes, and scratches and chips can be easily repaired.
Stainless steel can be powder coated after a thorough preparation process. Although the metal is highly resistant to damage and corrosion and there is no need for finishing, many want to alter the color or texture.
