How to Prevent Rust and Metal Corrosion

If left unprotected, all metal can start to rust and corrode. Metal corrosion is the deterioration of the metal caused by a chemical reaction. This chemical reaction is often from the environment the metal is in, and various climates can lead to rust and corrosion. The good news is that there are ways to protect your metal to keep it from rusting.

Powder Coating Prevents Rust

While a liquid paint coating can help prevent some rusting, powder coating is going to be your most effective option for preventing metal corrosion. Powder coating are applied by the material being electrostatically charged as the powder is blasted on to the product. Once the powder is applied, it is put in an oven and heated into a homogenous gel that evenly coats the entire product. This even goat prevents the metal from being exposed to its surrounding environment or other metals.

Powder coatings are also thicker and more durable than liquid paints, so you won’t have to worry about a nick or ding in the coating leading to a rust spot. Powder coated finishes have extensive durability and longevity, and come in just about any color or finish you desire. Powder coatings are a very effective and aesthetically pleasing way to prevent rust and corrosion.
