AP Precision’s in-house powder coating facilities play a critical role in providing the San Diego area with high-quality products, as well as a high standard of customer service.

Powder Coating Providers in San Diego
There are a lot of great powder coat providers in the San Diego area, but we found that we preferred to manage the process from the top down. From helping our customer pick the right texture and color, to packaging the product after completion, we prefer to be able to watch over the process every step of the way. When you contract with a local powder coat specialist, even if they are close by, a lot of production time is eaten up by transportation alone. Since we complete the process in-house, we don’t have to worry about transportation time or other risks such as accidental damage in shipping or storage, unforeseen delays in production, or mistakes in the finished product due to miscommunication. We find that all of these risks are decreased when we complete the powder coating at our own facility.
What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is the process by which a dry powder is electrostatically applied to a prepared metal surface, and then baked in an oven to finalize the coating process. The finished product is a thick, tough finish that is often preferable to conventional paint. Not only is powder coating often harder and stronger than normal paint, but it goes on in one coating before it gets cured in the oven. Compared to traditional painting which might call for two, three, or even four coats, this is a much faster, more efficient process.
This process gives an incredibly even finish as there are no drips or brush lines. And the process can be layered as well to give the product the desired texture and custom color. Not only is powder coating a strong, flexible color process, but it is also safer for the environment because it produces fewer volatile organic compounds. All of our a powder coats are ROHS Compliant and offer the gold standard in durability and environmental
We are proud to feature the powder coating service in-house. Not only does it allow us to shepherd the process from start to finish, but we have gained an incredible wealth of knowledge through years of practice. We take pride in helping the customer decide the right color, texture, and structural characteristic of the powder coating. And with our expert attention to detail, we make sure that the process is done correctly every step of the way. Powder coating has an incredible amount of applications, and can stand up to extremes of heat, cold, UV, or moisture.
