I don't like powder coat on steel
. If you get a nick in the coating that goes down to the underlying metal, corrosion
will set in under the powder coating. Eventually, the powder coat finish lifts off in large sections. In our salty humid environment
, everything I've bought that has a powder coat finish looks like crap after a couple of years of use. Stuff that's just been painted still looks pretty good.
Haven't tried powder coat on Aluminum
or SS so don't know if it will work better with that material.
