Estes Designs Mailbox & Streetscapes recognizes that powder coated mailboxes have various benefits in comparison to traditional “wet” paint. Powder coating has a much more durable finish. Fading and rusting on steel mailboxes can be significantly delayed with powder coating. The process of powder coating includes a spray application of a dry powder onto a metal base.
The powder than adheres to the metal with an electrostatic charge and is finally cured with heat. This process creates a hard, even, skin-like surface that clings to the mailbox, unlike typical wet paint applications that create a mere liquid (and often uneven) layer on top of the surface. This application makes powder coating more resistant to outdoor elements in comparison to traditional paint.
Another benefit of powder coating is that this type of coating is chip resistant and more environmentally friendly than traditional pain with lower emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds. Powder coating is offered in more colors at Estes Designs than paint, which can make matching the paint color on your hours an easier process.
