Industry Standard Coating is a thermoplastic coating which is used by most site furnishing manufacturers. This coating does not react chemically during drying, rather the coating is "fused" to the metal using heat. The cooling process causes the coating to harden and gain strength. Industry Standard Coating are more expensive that Powder Coating. The Industry Standard Coating has a 5 year manufacturers warranty, and is available in 9 different colors
The Advantage Coating costs more because it is a proprietary PVC coating that outperforms any other coating on the market today. We like this coating because it will not chip, crack or peel nor does it have any runs or drips and is graffiti resistant. The surface is non-porous which means it is impervious to stains, fungus, mold and mildew which runs commonly found on other plastisol products. The Advantage coating has a 7 year manufacturer's warranty. Without a doubt, this is the most durable coating out today and well worth the upcharge. The Advantage coating is available in 13 different colors.
