C R Industries has been working with artisan Cliff Matyszczyk and the Wrought Stuff from Wales, Wisconsin since 2000. Cliff artfully constructs magnificent structures from stone, glass, and pottery and sells them at craft fairs throughout the county. He must compete with other artists to enter high class craft shows by submitting portfolios to a council. We powder coat art of his as mentioned in the previous post, but wanted to go into more depth regarding the three step process of powder coating.
The first coat is a zinc rich primer which is crucial for sealing the metal to prevent rusting.
The second coat is the color coat which may even contain some metallic particles in order to give the color a sparkle/shine, which the customers love.
The final coat is a clear coat that enhances the luster while protecting the metallic particles in the second coat.
