The powder coating process was developed in the late 1940s and grew in popularity in the ensuing decades. A powder-coated surface is a hard, plastic-like coating on a metallic surface. The coating itself is made of a polymer that is mixed with pigments. Theses polymers and pigments are heat treated and then crushed to make the necessary powders that are then sprayed onto the part.
