Punching holes in powder coated sheetmetal





October 20, 2008

Can powder coated sheetmetal (CRS) be punched to create a hole without the paint on the edges of the hole peeling back or cracking?

Barring any other details the answer is yes.

That would depend on the thickness of the material, the quality of the paint and the sharpness and fit of the punch dies.
Only one way to tell, try it.
