If you’re looking to book a project in with a reputable powder coater, one of the factors you might need to research is whether powder coating is heat resistant.

Will your products be able to withstand the temperatures of powder coating?  Will the coating remain heat resistant after the process?

Hopefully, it will reassure you to know that Ercon uses a range of silicone-based powders that withstand intense heat.  In fact, high temperatures are integral to the powder coating process.

Ercon is a leading powder coater of the Wolverhampton and Birmingham area.  Not only will we finish your products to the highest quality, we will also be happy to answer any questions that you have about heat resistance and the powder coating process.

We discuss your projects in detail with you so that you have a full understanding of how we will treat your items in order for you to get the most out of them.

Which Materials Can Be Powder Coated For Heat Resistance?

Ercon can powder coat almost any item

Pretty much all metal, wood, glass, MDF and composite materials can be powder-coated.  However, you’ll need to review some plastic components individually with your powder coater, as these may run the risk of melting.

Not to worry though.  In these situations, Ercon uses low-bake powder-coating options to coat products.


In regular powder-coating processes, the high temperatures of the curing phase heat components up to 240⁰C.  If components can withstand this, you’d think they can withstand any heat.

And it’s true; powder coating can survive even the harshest of environments.  It’s one of the most durable solutions around when it comes to finishing your products.

The high temperatures of curing enhance powder coating in a variety of ways.  Curing creates heat resistance, robust surfaces, excellent colour retention, UV resistance (ideal for outdoor use), and a premium quality finish, whether you specify glossy, matte or textured surfaces.


In conclusion, yes, powder coating is 100% heat resistant for almost all materials.

Ercon can powder coat many items that will be regularly exposed to intense temperatures, including:

  • Hearth products
  • Exhaust systems
  • Barbecues
  • Lighting Fixtures
  • Automotive parts
