TGIC Powder Coat
This polyester-based finish is well suited for bike racks made from mild steel, and is available in a wide variety of colors. Powder coating serves as a protective barrier to the various environment elements that cause corrosion. To further increase corrosion resistance, Sportworks recommends an additional zinc plated undercoat be applied prior to the powder coating process. Zinc acts as a sacrificial anode to protect the base metal from corrosion should the powder coat become chipped.
PPA-571 Thermoplastic Powder Coat
This thermoplastic finish is also well suited for mild steel racks, and Plascoat’s special formulation (PPA-571) produces a more flexible and robust coating. When compared to polyester-based powder coatings, PPA-571 thermoplastic powder coatings are tougher, more resistant to chips, and naturally graffiti resistant. This finish is also available in a wide variety of colors.
If color is not a requirement, this hot dip galvanized finish is a good choice for durability, low cost and corrosion protection on mild steel racks. While a galvanized finish will appear rough when compared to zinc plated and powder coated finishes, galvanizing provides the highest degree of corrosion resistance of all three. Additionally, galvanizing can also be used as an under coating treatment to TGIC and PPA powder coats. All Sportworks galvanized bike racks are finished to ASTM A123.
Unlike powder coating and galvanizing, this finish removes material during the application process, and is ideal for stainless steel racks. Small glass particles (media) traveling at high velocities impact the metal removing the outer surface, and resulting in a mildly-textured or matted finish. Similar to galvanizing, there are no color options available for this type of finish. Sportworks stainless steel bike racks represent the highest level of corrosion protection available.
Sportworks offers the following standard color palette for our bicycle racks. All standard colors are available in both a polyester and a thermoplastic powder coat and are typically available within our standard lead time. All polyester powder coat colors include an epoxy primer undercoat. Zinc plating is also available as an alternate undercoat option.
Custom colors are available, and subject to minimum orders and lot charges. Custom colors matching RAL or Pantone, as well as anti-graffiti powder coat colors are available and may involve extended lead times and/or lot changes. Plascoat thermoplastic powder coat provides the following benefits: excellent corrosion, fade, chip, abrasion and graffiti resistance.
