Preserving a Vintage Table

This vintage table was an unusual project. Most of the time, we fix old scratches and discoloration to refurbish furniture. This project was an attempt to preserve those imperfections.

The old layer of paint was flaking off, which is not something you want with a kitchen table. We sandblasted that layer away so our client could see the bare metal.

They loved the industrial beat-up look of the surface. They decided they wanted a clear coat that protects the table while preserving the vintage look.

The matte clear top coat brought out some interesting details. The finish also makes sure the table is protected for daily use in a family home.

Restore Outdoor Furniture

With sandblasting and powder coating, you can restore any sort of metal furnishing. We’ve worked on a lot of radiators and radiator covers, but recently we worked on some outdoor furniture

The cold weather is keeping us all indoors, so it’s the perfect time to get ready for the spring!

This particular dining set our clients actually want to use them for indoor use. They liked the brass decorative knobs so much, they asked us to keep them free of powder. We polished them up to a mirror-like shine, then wrapped with a heat resistant tape. This way, no powder landed on the brass, and after the chairs came out of the oven we simply had to peel the tape away!

We can coat anything with powder rated for exterior use. As long as you follow the suggestions in our care sheet, then your furniture should last you for many more years!

Refurbish Cast Iron Radiators

Some houses have beautiful old cast iron radiators hidden under years of caked on paint, like these vintage American Radiator Company pieces. This fall we have been refurbishing lots of radiators, as home owners prepare for the colder weather to come.

These came to us so coated with old layers of paint that you couldn’t see the wonderful filigree.

We sandblasted the layers of old paint away to reveal the clean metal underneath. We powder coated them with a simple metallic gray that really emphasizes the design in the metal.

They are now good as new, and ready warm their house for many more years. Make sure to check out our tips for caring and maintaining your powder coating finish.

Powder Coating Fabrications

New fabrications will develop rust if they are not treated promptly and correctly. First, we sandblast the piece to remove mill scale, oil, and rust from the welding process.  We then evenly apply the powder to the metal surface of the fabrication. Finally, the piece goes into the oven for the powder to gel into a smooth, even surface for a long lasting, rust preventing finish.

These metal wave stands posed an interesting challenge because of the complexity of the shape. But no matter what the difficulty, our skilled technicians pay attention to the finer details to ensure a high-quality powder coat.

Refurbish Railings

We also powder coat railings, fencing, and gates. These window guards came to us rusted and layered with old paint. We refurbished them to look as good as new. Take a look at our process …

We cleaned the railings by sandblasting the rust and paint away. Our skilled technicians painstakingly made sure to reach every corner and joint thoroughly.  This stage is time intensive to ensure a high quality and long lasting powder coat and prevent future rust causing the powder coat to flaking off.

Sandblasting created a texture on the metal surface, making it an ideal surface for the colored powder. We sprayed these window guards with a durable powder coat to survive outdoors all year round.

Our skilled technicians take the time and the effort to create the highest quality final product the first time around.
