Architectural hardware plays a crucial role in the overall aesthetics and functionality of buildings.

What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a dry finishing process that involves applying a fine powder made of pigments, resins, and other additives to a surface. The powder is electrostatically charged and then sprayed onto the surface, creating a strong bond that is cured under heat, resulting in a durable and smooth finish. This process is commonly used for a wide range of materials including stainless steel.

Benefits of Powder Coating in Architectural Hardware: door fittings, window fittings and other accesories 
  • Durability: Powder-coated door hardware is known for its durability and quality. This finish requires minimal maintenance and is environmentally friendly, making it an excellent choice for both aesthetics and long-term performance.
  • Aesthetic Versatility: Powder coating offers an extensive array of colors and (matte) textures. This allows architects and designers to achieve the desired look, whether it's a sleek modern appearance or a more traditional aesthetic. 
  • Matte Appeal: Matte powder coatings offer an elegant, subdued finish that minimizes fingerprints and surface reflections, adding sophistication to the overall look.
  • Environmental Benefits: Unlike traditional liquid paints that often contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), powder coatings are free from solvents and VOCs. This makes powder coating a more environmentally-friendly choice, aligning with sustainable design practices.
  • Uniform Finish: Powder coating creates a uniform and consistent finish without drips, runs, or sags. This ensures that architectural hardware maintains its intended appearance, even in intricate and detailed designs.
  • Ease of Maintenance: The durable nature of powder-coated surfaces simplifies maintenance. They can be cleaned with mild soap and water, and they are less prone to damage from cleaning agents.
