The powder coating technique is everywhere, from your home appliances, lawn furniture to industrial equipment, even AP Lazer is powder-coated. But have you heard of “powder graphics”? Powder Coat Finishes, LLC, a Baltimore, MD company, may have started a new revolution in the powder coating industry.
They took advantage of AP Lazer’s no size or weight limitation capacity and developed “powder graphics” using multiple colors of powder coat to “laser print” logos, wording, and various piece of artwork, turning the low cost, environmentally friendly, durable, and scratch-resistant coating into colorful large format graphic art.
Two-color powder coat processes can be easily accomplished by coating the parts with two high contrast layers of powder coat. As the laser fires, it removes the topcoat, and the under color is revealed leaving high resolution, high contrast graphics.
The powder graphic innovation allows companies such as auto parts manufacturers to brand their products. Aftermarket re-sellers can personalize auto and motorcycle parts using this technique.
This simple technique will bring in a wide range of new markets such as powder-coated sign blanks for outdoor commercial signs, indoor and outdoor art, personalized appliances and furniture and so much more. You’ll now visualize any item that has been powder coated with branded logos, inspirational art, and unforgettable memories.
The team at Powder Coat Finishes LLC didn’t stop there, they went further, developing a unique “inlay” process which allows additional colors to be added on, therefore creating high precision, multiple color powder coating.
Owner of Powder Coated Finishes states: “We are excited to announce a newly developed technology, the ability to laser engrave company logos and images and inlay different colors of powder coat! The entire image including all colors is powder-coated, what this means is you can have a high-quality image or company logo with multiple colors with the durability of powder coat! We developed this process and are the only company currently offering this service! Any questions please don’t hesitate to call!”

You don’t need a lot of imagination to foresee the future: when paper met printing, we had books. When paper met full-color printing, we had a new world of printed art and photos. When powder coating met AP LAZER, a new era of powder graphics was born.
