Powdercoating v Colorsteel
What is the difference between powdercoating and coloursteel? or as others might say colorsteel?Allan Sizemore

I have never heard the term "colorsteel" so I can't help you. Try to pose your inquiry in real-world terms rather than as an abstract question and somebody may be able to help you.

Coloursteel is a trade name for the finish applied to steel sheet by BHP at their Glenbrook plant. The "paint" is applied wet and baked on. Powder coating is a generic process. The "paint" is applied as a fine powder which is elecrically charged to attract it to the surface. The item is then baked to fuse the power to the surface. The difference also depends on your needs. Powder coat can be applied to any metal item (and some non metallics as well) while "coloursteel" is restricted to steel sheet which may be post formed into corrugated iron etc.Buce Idoine
