Keycoat Powdercoat Service
« on: Thu, 30 May 2019, 02:11:38 »
Keycoat is a powder coating service that is focused on bringing your keyboards to life with premium finishes while accounting for the design and tolerances. Working very close with the shop, we have tuned the application of powder coating to keyboards.

Disclaimer: Keycoat can not guarantee that the board will fit the same way it did before powder coating. This is because powder coat is thicker than anodization and that thickness varies depending on the material the powder is made of. However, the shop has figured out ways to combat this and we have seen it with the results

What is powder coat?

Powder coat is a free-flowing, dry powder that can be applied to metals, such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel, or silver. Powder coat is uniquely applied to the metal electrostatically after being heated in an oven. Preparation for powder coat involves sandblasting previous anodization or surface finishes, preheating the metal, then spraying the powder.

The advantages of powder coat includes a reduction in the amount of volatile organic compounds released into the environment, a wide variety of specialty effects and colors not achievable in other finishes, and a durable and tough exterior finish that could possibly reduce or hide previous blemishes, scratches, or small nicks/dings.

If you can not find a powder you like on prismatic powders, but find it elsewhere, let me know and I can send it to the shop for them to review it and see if its a viable option.

I have also compiled a small list of past work from the shop.
