IronShield provides superior coatings and surface preparation for numerous products of differing materials. They offer both liquid painting and powder coating services to both companies and individuals. IronShield can liquid coat (aka paint) just about anything that can fit in their 20′ x 10′ x 12′ booth.

IronShield offers powder coating for any compatible object that can fit inside their 35’ x 10’ x 10’ oven, endure the oven’s high temperatures and hold an electrostatic charge. The bulk of items that are powder coated tend to be metal items. Below is a list of a few examples of the types of items IronShield can powder coat for you.

Powder Coat Preparation

Sand Blasting

IronShield’s climate-controlled indoor facility includes a blasting booth that is 20’ x 10’ x 12’. They use sand as their blasting medium to smooth, clean and prepare their project materials. The solid sand particles are shot out of the sandblaster and hit across the object’s surface at high speeds, scouring the surface.

Phosphate Etching

To prepare metal for powder coating, IronShield first rinses the metal, degreases it, rinses it again and then etches it. They use phosphate etching to improve the grip of the powder on the metal. Materials like aluminum can be very slick and will need extra assistance to bond the powder to the metal. Phosphate etching also significantly improves corrosion resistance to ensure that your newly powder coated item is resistant to rust and will stay in tip-top condition.

Powder Coating

IronShield creates amazing coatings across the board, but powder coating is their specialty. Powder coating is a form of dry coating that is applied electrostatically and then heated in a large oven under high heats to turn the dry powder into an opaque, durable shell. Powder coating is ideal for metal items, but can also be used on other materials that can both conduct a charge and endure high heats. Powder coating is very popular for use on large items like car bodies as well as for small items like tire rims and door handles.

Liquid Coating

Liquid coating is a broad category and can be used for many different coating applications. It can be applied aired or airlessly to many different surfaces, including wood, plastic, metal and glass. IronShield’s booth is 20’ x 10’ x 12’, which is large enough to handle architectural screening, automobile frames and other large items.


IronShield’s coating facility is located in Omaha, Nebraska, but if you live elsewhere in the Midwest, IronShield will pick up and deliver your project’s materials using one of their many tractor trailer operations. Their delivery services ensure your product is well taken care of and will not suffer dents, scratches, chips or abrasions. They make regular trips to Lincoln, NE, Grand Island, NE, Des Moines, IA, Sioux City, IA, Cedar Rapids, IA, Kansas City, KS, Sioux Falls, SD and Rochester, MN.
