Powder Coated

Powder coating is a dry coating process used as a metal finish mostly on industrial equipment. The coating is applied as dry powder through an electrostatic process, then cured with heat. It is well known for providing high-quality finishes in terms of both functionality and overall look.

Active Technology Paint

A synthetic coating that contains chemical properties to prevent bacteria from infecting and reproducing on the surface. This is applied to our products because it reduces the risk of cross-contamination and averts the spread of diseases such as MRSA. It is effective against viruses, fungi and organic air pollutants.
