Yes we can!
IronShield provides surface preparation and high-end coatings for a wide variety of objects and materials. We offer both liquid coating and powder coating services. We can liquid coat, or paint, just about anything that can fit in our 20′ x 10′ x 12′ booth.
We offer powder coating for any object that can hold an electrostatic charge, endure the high heat of our oven, and anything that can fit inside our 35’ x 10’ x 10’ oven. The bulk of our powder coat projects are metal items. Take a look at the list below for a few examples of the types of items we can powder coat for you.
- Small flat items
- Bicycle frame
- Single line hand rail
- Car body
- Architectural screening panel
- And more!

IronShield’s indoor, climate-controlled facility includes a blasting booth that is 20’ x 10’ x 12’. We proudly use sand as our blasting medium to smooth, clean and shape the materials we are working on. The solid sand particles are shot out of the sandblaster and hit across the hard surface at high speeds, essentially acting as sandpaper to smooth the surface.
To prepare metal for powder coating, IronShield first rinses the metal, degreases it, rinses it again and then etches it. IronShield uses phosphate etching to improve the adhesion of the powder to the metal. Materials like aluminum can be very slick and will need a little extra help to keep the powder coat adhered. Phosphate etching also significantly improves the corrosion resistance to ensure that your newly powder coated item is resistant to rusting and will stay in near-new condition.
Powder coating is our specialty at IronShield. It is a form of dry coating that is applied electrostatically and then cured in an oven under high heats to turn the dry powder into an opaque, durable “skin.” Powder coating is ideal of metal items, but can also be used on other materials that can conduct a charge and also endure the heat of our oven. Powder coating is very popular for use on items as large as automobiles, motorcycles and architectural screening, down to tire rims, door handles and bicycle parts.
Liquid coating is a broad category and can be used for many different things. It can be applied aired or airlessly to apply the liquid paint to several different surfaces, including glass, wood, plastic and metal. Our booth is 20’ x 10’ x 12’, which is large enough to handle architectural screening, automobiles and other large pieces.
IronShield has several service centers across the Midwest for those who want their items powder coated but don’t live near our coating facility in Omaha, Nebraska. Simply drop you materials off at one of our service centers, one of our tractor trailers will drive it to Omaha, and simple pick it back up at the service center once its complete. Our delivery services ensure your product is well taken care of and will not suffer any dents, scratches, chips or abrasions.
