Collection of Baked Enamel / Powder
Coated partition material samples.

Baked Enamel / Powder Coated

Steel Powder Coated / Baked Enamel compartment systems are economical and long lasting. Our Baked enamel system provides the toughest paint finish in the industry as measured by ASTM standards for salt spray, humidity, and impact. Rounded stile and door edges provide a soft relief and prevent edge chipping. This popular material is constructed with a panel of honeycomb cardboard covered by a thick sheet of metal and completed with powder coated paint finish. A colored powder is applied to the steel and then run through an oven, where the powder is baked to a tough and durable finish.
