We are adding Powder Coating to our growing list of services here at TKFS. As projects come in, we’ll be adding to our gallery and show various ideas and colors. These initial pictures are simple, solid colors. We will be adding mixes and color schemes as fast as we can. We offer dozens of colors in several finishes. You will find a basic list of services below. Powder Coating is just about limitless and we await your challenges. If you have a special project in mind please message us and we can put something together. We are always happy to help!

Salt Water? YES PLEASE!!! – The colors that we have selected have passed 500+-1000+ hours of testing against exterior conditions and salt water. We then add Ultra Clear Coat for an additional 5000+ hours of protection. If you are new to Powder Coating, this stuff is not like paint. It is a process of electrical adhesion and then a baked on finish hardening the powder into one hell of a tough finish! It does not scratch or chip easily so it will stand the test of time!

EXTREME TESTING –  We have beat on several items in testing here at TKFS and love how strong this stuff is! Keep in mind, cast aluminum is soft and will dent when stabbed with a screw driver or hammer. (Yes, we did it) These were the only times we could get the Powder Coating to deform. Even then, the powder bent with the aluminum maintaining its finish and protection!

Warranty – If you should experience a failure in the Powder Coating within the first 6 months we will pay to have the drive shipped back to us for a re-coating. This does not include any abuse or out of the ordinary usage or goofery. We are a small family and friend company and our customer service speaks for itself. If you have an issue, we have your back. PERIOD.

Shipping a propel drive and/or many other projects can be pricey in itself. We can help here too. We will recommend shipping options to help keep costs down and stress to a minimum.

If at all possible, disassemble your item prior to shipping it for Powder Coating. This drastically cuts down on shipping and labor charges.
