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.
Sportworks offers the Vertical+ No Scratch™ Floor System in the following black or dark steel gray color which is pearlescent with 80% gloss metallic. Custom colors are available, and subject to minimum orders and lot charges.
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. For more information regarding custom colors contact our sales team.
