What is powder coating for Bleachers?

Powder-coating is a process that is quite similar to painting. However, instead of covering the seats in wet spray paint, you'll be spraying a mixture of polymer resin, leveling agents, paint pigment and other additives. The mixture of powder particles is electrostatically charged which makes them attracted to the bleachers. Before spraying with powder coating, the seats are grounded to remove charges and ensure attraction.

After coating and spraying, the seats are subjected to some heat to allow the coating flow, level out, and then transform into the hardened state that you want. Powder-coating is a detailed process that has to be done correctly without room for errors.

Before the spraying starts, the material to be painted (bleachers) are rigorously cleaned, then thoroughly rinsed and completely dried. After this, the powder-coating process can occur followed by heat treatment to ensure permanent results. When you're done powder-coating these seats, you have sprayed bleachers with numerous benefits than what you'll get with regular bleachers.
