There is a new paint that is being made available in spray cans, and it's the same powder coating that is being used for many metal projects, such as airplane seats and the inside of hot tubs and refrigerators. Powder coating is not new, but the innovation of using a powder coating to paint large areas has been around a lot longer than most people think. In fact, the idea was originally created back in the early 1950's by Dr. Alexander Parkes who was trying to come up with a way to coat stainless steel with paint so that it would be rust resistant. Although the results were not very impressive, it did prove to be a very good solution for areas that needed to be painted silver or gold.
The problem was that the powder coating method took a while to develop into something that could be produced economically and with a high degree of quality. It wasn't until the late 70's that the process became widely accepted and started to see production in shops around America. Unfortunately, it also meant that the prices for the coatings were going through the roof because it was becoming so popular. When the dust settled, there was still no way to produce the coatings on a mass scale, but there were still ways to produce fine examples of the technology.
Today, you can purchase ready to apply powder coating kits that will allow you to quickly create a small surface, such as a door handle, and then allow you to sand and finish the item in a matter of minutes without having to do any preparation work at all. With this powder coating kit, you simply apply the powder coat, apply some rust remover, and you have a nice finishing touch on your item in no time. Most homeowners do not have the time or expertise to do this themselves, and therefore they will turn to a local contractor to complete this task for them. These contractors will have the experience necessary to make sure that any coatings applied are perfectly smooth and even.
