How to Protect Powder Coated Products Regardless of Shape or Size

Powder coating is a popular finishing technique used to enhance the durability and aesthetics of a variety of products. However, regardless of the shape or size of these items, protecting them from damage during storage or transportation is paramount. One highly effective solution for safeguarding powder coated products is the use of WOW Pads from Frank Lowe.

The Need to Protect Powder Coated Products

Quality Preservation

Ensuring the longevity and maintaining the pristine condition of powder coated products is crucial. Even the slightest chips or scratches can degrade the quality and functionality of these products. Thus, adequate protection is key to preventing common damages, like chipping, scratching, and abrasion during handling and transportation.

Ensuring Product Value

The aesthetic appeal of powder coated products plays a vital role in their value. When these products incur damage, not only is their aesthetic appeal compromised, but their value diminishes as well. Employing protective measures guarantees product value, bolsters customer satisfaction, and helps manufacturers and distributors maintain their reputation for quality.


Implementing protection for powder coated products is a cost-effective strategy. By safeguarding products from damage, companies can avoid additional expenses related to damage repair or product replacement. The investment in protective measures, such as WOW Pads, can result in significant savings in the long run.

Environmental Considerations

In today's eco-conscious world, choosing environmentally friendly solutions is of utmost importance. WOW Pads are not only superior in offering protection but are also beneficial for the environment. By opting for WOW Pads, manufacturers contribute to waste reduction, demonstrating a commitment to sustainable practices.
