plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
Do you have to remove a powder coating to "repaint" it?
Hi, I am a homeowner who ordered aluminum hurricane shutters. I believe they are powder coated, but the color doesn't match the salesman's color sample. The owner said he would see what he can do to correct the color problem, but hasn't said what that would be.
I would appreciate an explanation of the best method to approach this as well as some lesser methods to be concerned about.
In order for this "new paint job" to stand up to weather, would the powder coating have to be completely removed and reapplied? If so, how is that usually done?
Can a second powder coating be applied over and existing coating? If this is done, is there a risk of chipping?
Thanks very much.
The best approach would be to get the shutter place to exchange what you have for the right color or take them back and then find a different supplier, don't let them talk you into recoating what you have or you're gonna have a mess on your hands.
