Can you add powder coating on top of older, worn coated or painted items?
If your piece needs a bit of TLC, then we offer touch up sprays. However, for pieces that are well worn, we recommend a pre-stripping process. Provided that the original material is still in good condition under the removed paint or coating, this process allows for a superior coating finish when compared to overcoating items.
