Powder coating on outdoor furniture rubs off on clothes




Q. I have a set of antique outdoor iron furniture that has a white powder coat. I like the way it looks, but it rubs off on everything. What can I do to stop this?

A. It sounds as like your outdoor furniture was coated with an epoxy powder. Epoxies are great for corrosion resistance, but they have almost zero UV "sun" resistance. The "chalk" will hardly show up in a white powder, but will readily transfer to a pair of black pants. I would recommend having it repainted with an aliphatic urethane or a TGIC formulation. If there is no rust on the furniture, consider the chalked epoxy a great primer.
