The process of powder coating for industrial, commercial, and even household uses underwent many changes after its inception in the 1940s and 1950s. Initially, organic polymers or macromolecules were flame sprayed. This process uses high heat to transform the macromolecules into a semi-molten state as it is sprayed directly onto the substrate’s surface. In the 1960s and 1970s, a desire for environmentally friendly coating processes and new application techniques renewed interest in powder coating that resulted in massive growth for the industry. The lack of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the powder coating industry offers a level of environmental and worker safety unseen in liquid coatings.
Houston is a unique city in that it is home to a myriad of industries that rely on powder coating: petroleum & natural gas, manufacturing, construction, to name a few. However, due to the booming population of Houston and the surrounding areas like River Oaks, West University Place, Memorial, and Sugar Land, powder coating shops need to be diverse enough to cater to these large industrial segments as well as to individuals for smaller one-off projects, like patio furniture and driveway gates.
This wide spectrum of services is accomplished by offering an all-inclusive, full turnkey operation that will make the ‘whole powder coating process’ easier and less expensive (as all the work will be done in-house). Offering “extra services” like media blasting, welding repair, custom packaging, as well as the recovering and re-slinging of patio chairs, ottomans, benches, and chaise lounges allows for a single company to manage the entire process from start to finish. This translates to a much higher level of accountability through internal production reports and daily process updates. With multiple large over-sized ovens, in-house media blasting, and close relationships with over a dozen powder manufacturers in North America, Houston Powder Coaters has developed a process that avoids hiccups and ensures quick and reliable service. In fact, Houston Powder Coaters offers pick-up and delivery of residential powder coating in Houston and the surrounding areas like River Oaks, West University Place, Memorial, and Sugar Land. Now, that is what you call full turnkey.
Finally, to be able to service multiple industries, businesses, and individual home owners alike, companies like Houston Powder Coaters must have a talented team of experts that understand each market segment. They have to be able to easily read fabrication drawings, comprehend manufacturing & assembly techniques, and make real time changes when the process requires it. This is not an easy feat when you are talking about a wide spectrum of companies that require powder coating in Houston and surrounding areas like River Oaks, West University Place, Memorial, and Sugar Land.
