Powder Coating Services


Burkard Industries has been a leader in providing powder coating services to our clients for over 30 years. We have built a strong reputation using the latest application techniques and top-of-the-line equipment to ensure clients the highest level of product quality.

Further, our quality system meets or exceeds a variety of finishing specifications in accordance with ISO 9001 standards (formerly ISO 9001, 9002 and 9003 – ISO 9001:2000, ISO 9001:2008, ISO 9001:2015).

Competitively priced, our powder coating will stand up to harsh automotive, marine, and industrial environments.


Powder coating goes beyond the capabilities of conventional coatings by providing a highly durable, protective layer that is electro-statically bonded and fused to component surfaces.

Clients choose powder coating for surfaces where maximum protection and lasting appearance are a priority. Powder coated surfaces offer exceptional resistance to corrosion, scratching, and sunlight exposure.

Powder coating is the ultimate choice for many metal finishing applications.


Powder coating is environmentally friendly and unlike liquid coating, powder coats contain no solvents. This means that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are minimized and a major source of air pollution is eliminated.

Powder Coat Process

Click the tabs below to learn about each step of Burkard Industries’ state-of-the-art powder coat system.

Pretreatment Process

Parts undergo an eight-stage cleaning and preparation process prior to powder application to ensure optimum adhesion, durability, and appearance.

Powder Application

We use cutting-edge technology and environmentally controlled clean rooms to electro-statically apply powder coatings. Our application process incorporates automatic and manual spray equipment which gives us the ability to work with a wide range of part configurations. Powder coat then cures in our ovens, transforming it into a durable and protective finish.


As experts in masking, our team continues to develop innovative mask designs to provide solutions for even the most complex masking requirements. Our expertise allows us to protect mating and contact surfaces where critical tolerances must be preserved.

Colors, Wrinkles and Textures

Powder coatings are available in a broad range of colors and finishes. Clients can choose from our expansive stock inventory or work with us to create custom color matching.

Process Certifications and Part Testing

Burkard Industries validates the quality of its powder coat process by using American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) procedures to test for salt fog, adhesion, and hardness. We also monitor processing conditions by using Statistical Process Control (SPC) principles to meet client requirements.

Burkard Industries offers Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) submissions, control plans, process certifications, and other customer required quality documentation. Certified to ISO 9002 (formerly ISO 9001, 9002 and 9003 – ISO 9001:2000, ISO 9001:2008, ISO 9001:2015), we are continually improving our processes and standards to supply the highest quality finishes.
