How do I care for my LoD Products? Powder coating/Touch up paint

  • Powder coating is a very durable finished widely used throughout the industry, however, many factors affect its durability and lifespan in the end. Remember, if any metal part has a small rock chip, scratch, or blemish simply touch that spot up because that one spot will eventually become a rust spot. The finish of your product will be greatly affected by the environment. If the part is exposed to salt or other road-use chemicals the lifespan of the finish will be affected especially if there are any existing chips, scratches or scrapes.  Be sure to rinse off any salt, dirt or debris as soon as possible to prevent corrosion.  We recommend using Rustoleum brand Black Semi-Gloss Protective Enamel (oil based) to touch up any rust spots.  Apply using a foam brush by dabbing to match the powder coat texture.
