How long does it take to turn my parts around?

Our standard lead time is 7 days from the day we receive the parts. If we can get them out sooner, we will. The turnaround time varies depending on quality of parts, colour you choose, what is already in the system and what processes need to be done. If there is a need for expedited service please call to discuss options and cost to provide this expedited service.

Can you coat over chrome?

Yes, we can coat over chrome. However, we have no way to remove chrome itself, therefore the only option available is to coat over it. Due to this, we are not able to coat a virgin clean service, and as such we do not provide a warranty. The coverage is good and the coating is like any other substrate.

What temperature will powder coating withstand?

Traditional powder coating will withstand about 500&0176; Fahrenheit. Anything hotter or prolonged exposure will cause discolouring and destruction of the coating. There are some high-heat powders that can withstand up to 1200&0176; Fahrenheit for use on headers and manifolds. Ceramic coating is also available. Contact us for details.

Why are prices quoted only estimates until you see the actual part?

Our quotes are based on clean parts with no odd changes to the part. We will only give firm prices once we have the parts in our hands.

How do I treat powder coated surfaces?

Once a powder coated surface has cured out it can be treated like any other painted or finished surface. It can be polished and buffed like any other finish.

Can any colour be matched?

Any colour can be matched. The problem is that powder can only be made in certain quantities and that will affect the price. Colours of powder coated parts do not match parts exactly even under the best conditions. Always exercise care when colour matching. Durability will also affect comparability over time.

If I send the part to the U.S. address, are the costs in U.S. funds?

All rates quoted in U.S. are in U.S. dollars. All sales are made from the Canadian location so savings can be obtained in taxes on your coated parts.
