Is Powder Coating Stronger Than Liquid Paint?

A common question that many people ask is if powder coating is stronger than traditional liquid paint. Generally speaking, powder coating offers a much more durable finish than liquid paint. Powder coating has a stronger surface adhesion, and a better resistance to outside factors too. As a result, it is longer lasting, and can provide a better all round protection than traditional liquid coatings.

How Much Does Powder Coating Usually Cost?

Like all services, powder coating services can vary in their prices. The factors that will influence the price of powder coating are:

  • The size of the project being powder coated (it could be a small piece of riot equipment or a large ammunition storage unit)
  • The type of powder coating
  • Any additional services involved in the powder coating process (surface preparation etc.)

At R&M powder coating, a small component can cost between the range £24/1kg or £150/20kg.

Whereas a large piece of defence equipment can cost between £179.

How Long Does Defence Powder Coating Last?

The use of powder coating for the defence industry is an upward trend. The coating technology is what makes it one of the most durable and cost-effective finishes that the defence sector can use. With its outstanding durability and excellent corrosion resistance, defence coatings can offer an exceptional performance. With this in mind, powder coating can last up to 20 years. However, defence coatings may have a shorter lifespan due to their exposure to challenging operating conditions.

How Tough Is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a long-lasting and robust hard finish that serves as both a protection and aesthetic surface.
