    Portland OR powder coating/liquid question

    Hi! This Surly here, is this powder or liquid coating? I have a feeling it's liquid but I've heard liquid is more prone to chipping and peeling.

    Is there any way powder coating can have a liquid, glossy look?

    Any good recommendations for painters in the Portland OR area?

    Thanks!!!!

    I believe powder coating is more durable than liquid coating, simply because I've read that liquid is more prone to chipping, much like you've read.

    I don't live in OR, so sadly I can't recommend any painters :/

    Powder coat.... more glossy through application of clear coat of polyurethane.... perhaps extra shininess of paint job through waxing and buffing....


    ~Anyone know a good place for a powdercoating in the bay area?
