Many product designers, OEMs, and manufacturers like you choose metal for their products. Its versatility, durability, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness make it an attractive material to make various products—from housewares and outdoor furniture to machinery and automotive parts. Yet, one of its downfalls is it’s susceptible to corrosion, oxidation, and wear.

That’s why so many companies turn to powder coating for their metal products and machinery. Powder coating has been around for over 75 years and continues to be a superior coating that makes metal parts more robust, more durable, corrosion-resistant, and wear-resistant. The five stages of powder coating are cheaper to apply, last longer than paint, and are available in a wide variety of colors to customize your part.

What Coating Offers the Best Marine Corrosion Protection for New Steel?

A steel ship travels through the water.

There is no doubt that steel is a superior product for marine applications. It’s relatively low cost, extremely strong, and an easy substrate to fabricate into specific designs. Yet, its drawback is that when exposed to the harsh conditions of saltwater, the material begins to rust, jeopardizing the integrity of the ship or other marine apparatus.

That’s why manufacturers who make steel products for the water need appropriate marine corrosion protection to keep the inherent durability properties of the substrate intact. Four popular anti-corrosion options include cathodic protection, painting the surface, galvanizing the steel, and powder coating the product. Each comes with advantages, but there is one clear winner: fluid bed powder coating.

Here at Precision Coating Technology & Manufacturing, we have been helping product designers and manufacturers for over 30 years get the powder coating protection they need to create long-lasting, durable products that are resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and wear. Learn more about why powder coating is the best option and how we can help protect your ships, boats, brigades, pontoons, and other water apparatuses from marine corrosion.
