Powder Coating Costs Canada
All you need to know about powder coating prices
So you are curious for powder coating prices. Whether you need commercial-scale application, want your rims or wheels powder coated, or are looking to apply it yourself, you have come to the right place. In this article we provide you with an overview of powder coating prices for industrial applications, DIY powder coating, and all other powder coating services.
Powder coating costs are determined by several aspects of the project:
- The type and colour of the powder
- The application method
- The amount of pretreatment required
- The surface area of the part or object
Because the price of powder decreases as the quantity increases, it is more cost-effective to powder coat bigger projects than smaller ones.
The costs of industrial & commercial powder coating
When it comes to industrial and commercial powder coating applications, the applicator will usually purchase powders directly from the manufacturer, providing you with a range to choose from. The prices vary depending on the manufacturer, the type of powder, and the nature of the contract with the supplier. It can often be beneficial to contact the manufacturer to enquire directly about powder coating prices based upon their product, and the applicators they supply.
Applicators tend to give a flat rate per item or a variable rate for mass jobs, depending on the difficulty of coating the objects, as well as their size. If pretreatment such as sandblasting is required, this may also add up to the costs. If you are searching for industrial powder coating companies, make sure to find out whether the company has the equipment and ability to coat your project.
