Protective Coatings for Texas Weather

Protective coatings for lawn and patio furniture.

When it comes to Texas weather, there’s only one thing you can expect: the unexpected. One minute there’s not a cloud in sight; the next, it’s storming and hailing. To combat this, you need protective coatings to safeguard the items that are important for you. So if you are looking to add protective coatings to your outdoor items and keep them safe from the Texas weather, our team at Atlas Protective Coatings is here to help! 

Protective Powder Coating

Protective powder coating can be used for commercial and residential purposes. When a powder coat is applied, it produces a tough and durable finish, resistant to scuffs, scrapes, and impacts that can damage ordinary paint. To begin, an electrostatic application of pigments and resin is applied to a metal or conductive surface. It is then cured under high heat. The benefits of using a powder coating are the value, life, and beauty of your items will be increased while future maintenance costs decrease. 

Protective Coatings for Lawn & Patio Furniture

APC Patio Perfect is a division of Atlas Protective Coatings specializing in protecting your patio furniture and other metal outdoor fixtures from the elements with a brand new finish. We all like spending time outside on the patio, whether it’s with our friends, grilling with the family, or just having a good time in the summer heat by the pool. With Atlas protective coating services, we can ensure your lawn furniture is protected year-round with a custom color of your choosing. 

If you find yourself sanding and painting your old lawn furniture year after year, APC Patio Perfect may be right for you. We guarantee a longer-lasting finish that will save you time and money for the desired results of bringing your old furniture back to life.

A few of the items we can offer our powder coating services for include:

  • Gates
  • Fencing
  • Planters
  • Barstools
  • Lawn chairs
  • Lawn tables
  • Lawn equipment
  • Chaise lounges 

Protecting your outdoor furniture from the harsh Texas weather is crucial for keeping them in the long run. Extreme heat can cause paint to fade, while cold and wet conditions can leave your outdoor items looking dingy, old, and rusty. Ultimately, powder coating your patio items can be cheaper than having to paint or replace your furniture every year. 

We also offer sling replacement for chairs and loungers, should you want a new look at your old furniture. With a powder coating and new slings, you can update the screws, nuts, and bolts and have a brand new-looking set for a fraction of the cost of buying new.

The Atlas Protective Coatings Process

Powder Coating Utility Trailers

We pride ourselves on finding protective coating solutions for our customers where others have failed. We can advise you on the correct pre-treatment, coating resin, and application process to use to enhance the quality of your product depending on the product’s base metal and application.

Our Protective Coating Services Include

  • Powder Coating and Metal Finishing
  • Sandblasting
  • Metal Stripping
  • Consultation
  • Final Packaging and delivery

Burn-Off: To ensure the maximum cleanliness of the surface, we may place your parts in our oven. This will remove any previous coating, machining oils or greases that may have accumulated during fabrication or machining.

Grinding: We may also prep parts by radiusing edges, grinding welds, and cleaning off weld spatters.

Shot Blast: For more aggressive pre-treatment we can sandblast to provide a white metal finish for maximum coating adhesion.

Chemical Stripping: For thin gauge, aluminum die cast, or parts that cannot withstand the heat of the burn-off oven, we can chemically strip the part to bare metal. This is especially important for parts requiring rework.

Cleaning: To achieve maximum coating performance for your product, we clean parts using a cleaning method most suitable to the part according to the metallic make-up and surface condition. For large products we have a high pressure washer/cleaner.

Powder Coating: Powder coatings are precision-applied by electrostatic spraying. After coating, each piece is heat-cured in an oven, where the tough plastic film is permanently fused to the metal.

Final Inspection and Certification

Throughout the finishing process, coatings are thoroughly checked (up to three separate inspections). Sandblast profiles can also be tested.
