Project Description

Any Type of Metal • Any Shape • Any Colour

Durable Powder Coating began as the paint department for Fence-All, the local fence and deck experts in the Ottawa/Gatineau area. As our experience, staff, and facilities grew there came a time when it made sense to open our doors to anyone needing quality paint services. They swung open for good in 2008 and now we’re celebrating our 10th year as paint specialists. We look forward to many more years to come.

Whether you are looking for a specific type of finish, a custom colour, sand blasting and preparation time, or you just need to coat something that’s “ready to go” in one of our standard colours, Durable offers all of the solutions needed to help make your project a success.

Powder Coating

At Durable Powder Coating all of our powders are applied electrostatically and all products are baked in our specially designed curing ovens. The result is a remarkably tough and consistent “skin” of paint that will hold its shine. Typically the item will never need to be painted again. Some of the many benefits of Powder Coating include:

  • Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontal surfaces and vertical surfaces compared to “wet” painted items.
  • Powder coating can produce much thicker coatings without running or sagging.
  • The electrostatic process provides a much more consistent coating thickness.
  • Powder coatings emit nearly zero volatile organic compounds.
  • Powder coating overspray is recycled to achieve nearly zero waste.
  • We offer a range of specialty effects that are impossible to achieve otherwise.

Blasting – Who needs sandpaper?

Abrasive grit blasting, or “blasting”, is our preferred process for cleaning product surfaces whenever we need to go beyond our typical multi-step washing. Blasting is one of the most efficient ways to strip off foreign materials. It’s similar to using sandpaper or a wire brush, but with better results on corners, nooks, and crannies. Painted products need to be blasted before recoating so that powder can stick to clean product. You don’t want the powder to stick to the old paint. If it does then the powder goes when the old paint flakes off.

Common abrasive materials include: Silica Sand, Aluminum Oxide, Steel Shot, Glass Beads, Corn Cobs, Walnut Shells. The choice of abrasive is largely determined by the surface of the product being cleaned (aluminum, being softer, will damage easier than heavy steel so we would typically use a softer aluminum oxide instead of silica sand).

Why blasting is needed
Black steel comes from the steel mill covered in oil so it won’t rust in the warehouse. All of that oil needs to be blasted off so that the powder can stick to clean product. You don’t want the powder to stick to the oil. If it does then the powder goes when the oil dries off. Rust needs to be blasted off so that the powder can stick to clean product. You don’t want the powder to stick to the rust. If it does then the powder goes when the rust flakes off.
