In-House Powder Coated Sheet Metal
GTR Manufacturing offers full powder coated sheet metal as part of our in-house metal finishing capabilities. Powder coating relies on electrostatic application—as opposed to the physical application of liquid paint—which makes it a faster, more durable, and more environmentally friendly method of product finishing.
In addition to precision sheet metal fabrication services, we maintain and operate an on-site facility dedicated solely to metal finishing. Our capabilities include five separate painting booths, with a total area of 672 sq. feet, and two ovens, with a combined area of 192 sq. feet, allowing us to handle large jobs. Our team members are also exceptionally skilled in chip-matching and can maintain texture consistency while working with any type of material.
Unlike other fabricators, our one-stop-shop approach avoids subcontracting processes, extra handling costs, and time-consuming transfers.

Powder Coating Benefits
In a single-coat application, textures are built directly into the powder formula, resulting in a thicker and more uniform finish without running or sagging.
- Uniform finish
- Reduced carbon footprint
- Faster turn-around time than painting
Our Powder Coating Process
Powder coating is an alternative to our epoxy-based painted sheet metal capabilities. Here’s how the process works:
- Along with the selected pigment color, very fine and dry resin particles are applied to the product with an electrostatically charged spray gun.
- The product is then baked in industrial-sized ovens—GTR Manufacturing’s facilities include two of these specialty ovens with a combined square footage of nearly 200 feet, allowing us to handle large production jobs.
- The melted resin fuses with the metal during heating, providing a uniform, thick, and durable finish.
Health & Safety Benefits of Powder Coats
Powder coated sheet metal methods are versatile, as they can be easily applied to objects or metals that have structures or properties that would make them difficult to cover with liquid paint. Powder coating also eliminates the need for using Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which are often found in solvents or organic paints.
The EPA states that VOCs can be harmful pollutants, but the dry materials in powder coating do not include VOCs. As a result, powder-coated products can stand up to a variety of conditions all while leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
Our end-to-end precision sheet metal fabrication capabilities not only speed up project timelines by lowering the risk associated with relying on external supply chains but also allow us to have complete oversight and control over the entire production process — ensuring uncompromising quality.
Is GTR’s Aluminum Powder Coating Service Right For Your Next Project?
- Is your business in need of metal finishing that meets strict industry requirements?
- Have other manufacturers looked at your blueprints and ruled that your systems are “too difficult” or complicated to create?
- Are you looking for a straightforward paint job but are surprised at how long the lead times are?
Our end-to-end capabilities speed up project timelines by lowering the risk associated with relying on external supply chains and give us complete oversight and control over the entire production process—ensuring uncompromising quality.
We haven’t built a semi-centennial (50-year-old) business by just making parts alone; our success is equally measured by the trust our clients continually place in us generation after generation.
