Benefits of Painted Steel Casework

Built to withstand harsh lab environment, painted steel has set the standard for quality and durable casework. Powder coating has been around since the early 1950s and is widely used in the automobile, construction, consumer appliance products, and healthcare furniture industries. What makes painted steel casework so great?

Painted steel is the process of electrostatic applying epoxy powder coating onto a metal surface. This process gives steel a second “skin” to protect against corrosion and other external damage.

What are other benefits painted steel casework provides?


Painted steel is one of the easiest materials to maintain. Simple soap, water, and a soft cleaning cloth are enough to remove dirt and stains. Its non-porous surface prevents bacteria and viruses from being harbored and spreading inside the lab.


Painted steel’s coating provides a thick layer of protection from external damage, scratches and chemical spills extending the life of your casework. This also includes moisture and humidity from damaging the steel frame under the painted surface.


Aside from its durable properties, painted steel casework looks great. Paint is available in a variety of colors to choose from to match your lab perfectly.
