Media blasting plays a central role in preparing a surface for the powder coating process, by both cleaning the surface and applying texture. Here is a brief overview of media blasting, how it differs from sandblasting, and how it factors into the powder coating process. Continued
Wondering how sandblasting might be a benefit for your metal items before they undergo the powder coating process? Here is a brief overview of sandblasting, how it works, and how it factors into the powder coating process. Continued
A powder coating job is inherently a custom job every single time, and never is the attention to detail involved in a custom job more important than when applying powder coating to parts of a car. Your car is an investment, and any updates in the form of powder coating must be done professionally and with precision. If you’re wondering how powder coating might be applied to your car, here are three common ways that people customize their cars with power coating. Continued
Summer is a time when many are drawn to brighter colors and more colorful home decorations and furnishings. And with a wide range of colors and finishes that powder coating offers, powder coating is the perfect way to add some color to the things in and around your home.

Many characteristics of powder coat make it a superior alternative to wet spray paint, including the following.
Full Blown Coatings is excited about sponsoring Canguro. Their Baja Toyota is seen across the country in several events and races. This is a great example of adding color for increasing attention, and protecting your wheels. Full Blown Coatings powder coated the rims and bead-locks, and it turned out great! We are excited to be a part of this project!
Being able to powder coat almost anything, is so much fun! I had bought a very used scooter for $1 at a garage sale, and had planned to give it to my son for Christmas. It was still in good shape, as far as the function, but it was old and worn looking. My boy LOVES red, and I figured since I have a husband that powder coats, why not make the scooter like new! It turned out perfect, and my four year old was ecstatic about the red.
So here I have a like new scooter, that I paid $1 for, and my son is loving it, mostly cuz it’s red! Way to customize, even for a 4 year old!
Trailers are used for a number of things, and can really take a beating. Towing increases the risk that a rock or other debris will compromise the painted finish and invite or accelerate corrosion. In northern Utah climates, this could be exacerbated by the presence of snow melting chemicals used in early and late seasons…or, if the trailer is stored outside, the presence of rain on any exposed surface can also accelerate corrosion.
By using a zinc primer as a base coat, and a powder coat (color of your choice) as the top coat, this supports that the metal will have the added protection it needs to withstand all this drastic Utah weather.
Full Blown Coatings understands that because trailer frames vary greatly in size and configuration, proper curing requires large ovens and extreme sources of heat. Required curing temperatures must be obtained with each trailer, so the powder will melt and adhere to the surface. Most powder must be cured for 10 minutes at 400 degrees F.
Full Blown Coatings, neighboring Sandy Utah, has a 23 foot oven, which makes large parts our specialty!
Here at Full Blown Coatings, we value our work. Upon request, each part is properly packaged to ensure each finished part is delivered undamaged. We use foam rolls, and plastic wrap, which are placed between each part and layer, and then loaded on pallets for easy and fast transport. We have a forklift that we can load pallets quickly and efficiently.
Well, you don’t see that everyday!….A Singer Sewing machine. Powder Coating is a perfect example of restoring very old items and parts back to their original state, or better. The original coat on this Singer sewing machine was most likely painted, which over time, needed a newer, fresher look. With technology constantly improving, we now can restore it with a beautiful, durable, powder coat finish.
Bring your part or project down to us at Full Blown Coatings, and let us restore your part for you.
Full Blown Coatings is all about powder coating Utah one part at a time, and adding color, passion, and life to whatever you can imagine. The endless color possiblities of Powder Coating to spice up you life, your car, or your yard!!!
Seeing the end project is so rewarding for us, and each part and project gives us more creative ideas. We love to share each of these on our website, in hopes that it will continue to inspire all of Utah with each unique project.
With all the thousands of people that are now turning to Electronic Cigarette/ Vapor Stick/ Ecigs, there are hundreds of vapesticks floating around, and if I know you, you are customizing and fine-tuning it specifically to your likings, which isn’t always easy……
Here at Full Blown Coatings in Utah, we are able to add detail to your powder coated piece, which gives you another option to personalize your ecig. We can do solid (glossy, satin, or flat), candy (transparent color), texture, glitter, wrinkle, vein, and metallic finishes.
Veins that are covered with a candy top coat, create a chemical reation, separating the vein powder from the top coat, causing a two tone effect. The finished look is streaks of alternate colors that appear throughout the part, which adds a professional look and added dimension to the part. Antique or vein are textured metallic finishes that add visual dimensional layers to objects that otherwise show no character. They also hide uneven surfaces and are easy to maintain.
Glitter finishes contain sparkling metallic flakes suspended in a clear coat. They can be applied over any base-coat color, providing a high range of effects by just changing the base-coat color. This provides multiple-color sparkles to add delight and cheerfulness to any color.
Colors play an important part in our daily lives and not just because they are pleasing to the eye. Of course, aesthetics are an important aspect of colors, but colors are also used to communicate important information. So, while a bright yellow may be the perfect color to make the rims on your car stand out, the same yellow may also be just the right color for a stair railing for the same reason. Continued

Did you know that powder coating is highly resistant to weathering and direct exposure to UV light? Traditional paints and stains can fade quickly when exposed to the elements and direct sunlight because they don’t have the strong chemical bonds which are formed in the curing stage of powder coating. By comparison, powder coating is much stronger than paint because it forms strong bonds right down to the molecular level. So, not only does it maintain its color better over time, but it also keeps its durability. Continued
