Powder coating allows boat owners to customize their boat lifts while protecting their investment. It also cranks up dock appeal and allow boat owners to become the envy of their neighborhood!
Powder coating is a dry finishing process proven superior to painting. Powder coating is applied using an electrostatic spray deposition and cures to metal surfaces, such as aluminum, under heat or ultraviolet lighting. The result is a hard coating that is much tougher than conventional paint.
There are two primary reasons that boat owners opt to powder coat their boat lift: durability and appearance.
Powder coating a boat lift protects a consumer’s investment. IMM Quality Boat Lifts uses a marine-grade primer coat to protect the aluminum and prevent it from oxidizing. Our team then applies additional top coats with UV stabilizers to protect lifts from sunlight. Ultimately, powder coated boat lifts last longer when exposed to dangerous UV rays, saltwater and rain.
The Titan Yacht Lift shown in the photo above was installed in 2010. Yet, the powder coated beams still look as good as the day they were installed.
Many captains want their boat lifts to project a sense of style and personality, in addition to functionality. Bland is out, and color is in.
At quick glance, boat lifts often look the same because they’re the same color – raw aluminum. IMM Quality Boat Lifts can customize boat lifts in any color. Because colors can influence mood, they set the tone for your boating experience. That’s why it is so important to choose the right color.
Clients select custom colors for a variety of reasons. These are the three most common reasons:
- It matches their boat
- It matches their home
- It matches their natural surroundings
Much like painting a home’s interior, it’s all about choosing the right colors for the space. The boat lift in the photo above, for instance, flows perfectly with the boat’s color scheme.
