WE MAKE METAL PERFORM BETTER
When it comes to powder coating metal applications we are Hawaii’s go-to source. Our knowledge provides insight into solving a customer’s individual needs. We make your metal look as good as you need it to perform.
GREAT FOR HAWAII IN 3 WAYS
1. Unlike traditional painting contractors who deal with messy liquid paints and epoxies, powder coating industry spares Hawaii landfills from excessive debris and waste from job clean up.
2. Durable coatings also contain no solvents; therefore do not emit pollution in the form of harmful fumes and gases known as VOCs into the atmosphere.
3. Our multiple ovens sizes offer flexibility; from racking a wide range of part sizes and quantities to extreme sized custom fabrication. We do it all, big or small saving you money with a quicker turnaround.
POISED FOR GROWTH
High growth is expected in the coatings market well into the 2020s. You can expect powder coatings to touch aspects of architecture, automotive and home goods like never before. Coating applications meet the high demands of corrosive environments and climate extremes, as well as being EPA/LEEDs compliant.
LEADING THE WAY IN COATING
Innovation is happening rapidly in the powder coating industry, from powders reaching new heights in durability and longevity to custom coater creatives. It’s an exciting time to be in this industry. And now we are pleased to announce Patina Powder Coating. We've introduced a new twist on achieving a realistic patina copper effect to metal in a non-traditional way. These new techniques are going to revolutionize the architectural coatings market.
How We Got Started
As a 20 year veteran of the painting and restoration industry, it was natural to turn to this side of the coatings business.
NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION
In 2004, I was frustrated with painting liquid paint on metal air-conditioning registers for a local resort. By then, I had experience restoring boats and furniture under my belt. I was a master painter but was tired of slow dry times, surface rejection, and endless primer coats.
Ever the “do it yourself-er” I was seeking a new way to achieve that perfect metal finish. That’s when I found out about the process of powder coating. I was hooked!
Today, I provide my customers with the quality finishes that I wanted for myself. Now, I want to share my expertise in metal coatings; painting and restoration so that customers can navigate the process of powder coating and make the best choices for getting their projects done.
Join me as we build a powder coating community in Hawaii to share our passion for performance finishes.

SANDBLASTING VS. ABRASIVE BLASTING
The difference between sandblasting and abrasive blasting is the media we use to surface blast. Although sandblasting is generally the broad term the specific type of blasting we do is abrasive blasting. This service is mostly offered to our powder coating clients as part of the 5-stage restoration process. The price is generally included in our rim/wheel refurbishing service. Otherwise, we charge by minute/hour depending on the size of the project.
We are not a mobile blasting service. If you have a blasting only job please inquire directly at 808-667-9690
METAL PREP SOLUTIONS & RINSES
Depending on which type of metal were working on there are many types of metal wash solutions available to help prepare surfaces for powder coating and remove salt and excess material after stripping, sanding or sandblasting.
OUT-GAS PRIMERS & SURFACE BUILDERS
Primers are base coats added before the color coat and make for the perfect protection system for Hawaii’s harsh climate and extra long-lasting durability. Out-gas primers are also handy when restoring old metal, tight welds or oil penetrated surfaces. They can be used on composite metals as well to help build up the surfaces of extremely pocked or uneven surface metal.
CERAMIC COATING SERVICES
Ceramic coating is a spray coating for heat resistance and durability for engines, motorcycles or customs. Ceramic coating is done through a dry process using CeraKote Coatings. These coatings are primarily for pipes, headers, and exhausts. We do not do firearms at this time.
THERMAL FORMING & ETCH BLASTING
Available upon request, thermal forming is a process by which flat sheets of acrylic can be manipulated to form an ideal shape to fit lighting and custom build projects. Our sandblasting facility can etch your next glass, stone, or wood project including tables, signage, and monuments. Graphics and set up fees may apply.
