It’s a common question. The answer, unfortunately, is no. Most non-metal objects can’t handle the intensity of the environment in our powder coating oven.
Hot enough for you?
The heat in our oven usually ranges from 150°C to 200°C (300°F to 400°F) with a maximum rating of 260°C (500°F). There are non-metals out there with high melting points (Boron rings in at 2,076°C for example) but they aren’t the stuff of everyday objects.
The bottom line: we stick with metal, it’s what we know.
The Good News
The non-metal criteria isn’t, of course, much of a limit. We’ve painted bikes, rims, railings, machinery, piano frames, goblets, patio furniture, and much much more. Occasionally we’re not even sure what the item is (that testing rig for ballistics comes to mind). If it’s made out of metal, Durable’s got you covered.
