The 2, 5, 10 and 16 quart buckets
have a steel metal body powder coated in 14 bright colors.
Made in Ohio, USA.
Done properly, the clever process
creates durable, long lasting, scratch resistant and
attractive finishes on metal. You need to know two things:
1. It is an electrostatically charged
powder polymer applied by a special powder coating device
(generally, a spray gun).
2. Powder must be cured or baked for about 10 minutes
at 400 Fahrenheit to thermally bond powder the substrate
Here’s a few more details about
Oils, metal oxides from welding scales
are removed. This cleans the steel bucket and will maximize
bonding of the power to the steel, without a primer.
There’s no better method to achieve such excellent
coverage on the ins and outs of the corners than free
flowing dry powder bonding electrostatically to charged
• The magnetic process releases
virtually zero volatile organic compounds and is thicker
than liquid coatings.
• The electro-adhesion process is energy efficient
material handling and manufacturing. Read
what SRI has to say.
• Excess powder called overspray is easily recycled
allowing for 100% use of coating material.
• Application produces typically very even paint.
• Chipping is prevented, thermal bonding is superior
Enamel and powder coating are both methods of
painting metal, they additionally provide corrosion protection.
Enamel color paint is applied as a liquid; it is an
older form of painting technology. It’s more energy
intensive and it’s liquid chemical composition
releases volatile organic compounds. It is a relatively
sturdy coat of color that’ll last.
Both choices are great techniques for decorating your
bucket. The enameled finish is a high quality covering.
However, the powder coating is thicker and will stand
a greater amount of abuse than the enameled surface.
Another consideration is price: Powder coated items
are usually much higher in price than their enameled
If the container that you are buying is going to used
as a candy container, then an enamel finish should be
a durable enough coating. If the container will be used
for work and is expected to look good, the powder coating
is the correct choice.
