Powder coating is a combination of Resin and Pigments engineered for specific purposes. It is ground to a powder form and is sprayed on any metal and other substrates. The powder is charged with high voltage spray gun which charges the powder to be attracted to the grounded product. The product is heated in a curing oven until it is baked on. The product is cooled leaving a high quality durable finish powder coating surface. This makes the product more resistant to chipping, scratching, and wear compared to other coating finishes.
West Coast Specialty Coatings, Inc. has hundreds of color, glosses, metallic and texture and clear finishes available. Don’t be afraid to ask for something special.

Ceramic coatings have many applications.
- Automotive exhaust,
- dry-film lubrication,

- thermal- dissipative and
- high chemical resistance to name a few.
Another benefit of ceramic coating is they emulate the look of certain plating materials which may be desirable for your project.
Ceramics can be applied to metal and can reach up to 2000 degrees. We recommend this for high heat items such as exhaust manifolds, headers and turbo housings.
