Powder-coating is a dry finishing process that's been used in the United States for more than 40 years. It's certainly put to great use for portable garages and shelters. It's also found on several other types of products. It's popular because of its high quality, durable finish. It also tends to be environmentally friendly.

The ingredients that make up powder-coating are melt-mixed, cooled and ground into a uniform powder. This powder is fine, yet with a consistency similar to baking powder. The actual coating of the powder to the metal is often done through a process known as electrostatic spray deposition. This application method uses a spray gun to apply an electrostatic charge to the powder particles, which are then attracted to the grounded part.
