Powder Coating Process
The powder coating process involves charging powder paint particles that adhere to electrically grounded surfaces. The powder color then heats and cures in a curing oven. The finished balcony paint color result is a uniform, durable, high quality and attractive finish. The only challenging part of powder coating is any retouching has to be conducted at a powder coating facility. Nicks and scratches during transport and install can be retouched to match the paint color, but the onsite retouching won’t hold the same adherent benefits of powder coating. In that sense, extra care should be made during transport and install to retain the powder coating.
AAMA 2604 Paint Specifications
AAMA 2604 paint specifications are met on every aluminum balcony. For example, this high level of paint specification means you have five (5) year South Florida outdoor weather assurance, humidity resistance, gloss retention, and color retention, all with proper maintenance. Other coatings less than a 2604 classification cannot make this real-world exposure in South Florida claim.
Alternative Balcony Paint Color Considerations
Wood balconies can only use traditional paint or staining methods. The upkeep to keep a wood balcony looking good far surpasses the time and money of powder coating. Steel balconies can be powder coated to help prevent rust, but the steel can still rust if any areas become exposed. The rust repair of steel could take a lot of time and material cost.
Color in Architecture
Color brings architecture to life. If a multifamily building has balconies then color can attract renters, and stand out among surrounding architecture. Read more on how powder coated balcony color was used at the Trio in Milwaukee to stand out.
