What is Powder Coating?            Also see "How It Works"

The Lasker powder coating process uses a solvent free dry mix of plastic resins, pigments and fillers that melt and fuse together when heated. The solid particles of coating are electrostatically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the powder particles in place while the part is cured in a 400+ degree oven. The heat of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure, creating a highly durable finish.

Q: What’s the difference between Lasker Powder Coating and other powder coaters?

A: Lasker Powder Coating has been doing custom powder coating in Tampa Bay for years. We are a "job shop"; not a "production" shop. We provide services that other powder coaters either don’t know how to provide or won’t.  If you have special areas that need to remain free of powder coating, no problem. You want a special transparent or candy color, no problem. You want a custom matched powder, no problem. You only have one part, no problem.  Also we have some of the largest ovens available, allowing us to powder coat items that other shops do not have the ability to do.

Q: How much does powder coating cost?

A: Powder coating costs about the same as other professionally applied paints or coatings. Some bulk plating processes similar to anodizing may be slightly less expensive. More decorative finishes like chrome plating is substantially more expensive than powder coating.
