* A note of disclosure from the Founder of Xen Company, LLC:
“Some in social media have referred to me as the inventor which is not entirely accurate; many years ago while visiting Asia I was inspired by a product of similar design. With the help of my brother, an engineer in Colorado, I developed Xenclip® using the finest materials and quality finishes. This is the reason I’m proud to say each XENCLIP® comes with a NO QUESTIONS ASKED LIFETIME GUARANTEE.”

What is powder coating?
Powder coatings are based on polymer resin systems, combined with curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives. These ingredients are melt mixed, cooled, and ground into a uniform powder similar to baking flour. A process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) is typically used to achieve the application of the powder coating to a metal substrate. This application method uses a spray gun, which applies an electrostatic charge to the powder particles, which are then attracted to the grounded part. After application of the powder coating, the parts enter a curing oven where, with the addition of heat, the coating chemically reacts to produce long molecular chains, resulting in high cross-link density. These molecular chains are very resistant to breakdown. This type of application is the most common method of applying powders. Powder coatings can also be applied to non-metallic substrates such as plastics and medium density fiberboard (MDF).
Sometimes a powder coating is applied during a fluidized bed application. Preheated parts are dipped in a hopper of fluidizing powder and the coating melts, and flows out on the part. Post cure may be needed depending on the mass and temperature of the part and the type of powder used. No matter which application process is utilized, powder coatings are easy to use, environmentally friendly, cost effective, and tough!
Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on thousands of products you come in contact with each day. Powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household items you depend on daily. It provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing an attractive finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues.
It’s tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time. In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages.
What is electroplating?
Electroplating is known as electrodeposition because the process involves depositing a thin layer of metal onto the surface of a work piece, which is referred to as the substrate. An electric current is used to cause the desired reaction.
Here’s a simplified explanation of how electroplating works: Let’s suppose that a layer of gold is to be electrodeposited onto metal jewelry to improve the appearance of the piece. The plating metal (gold) is connected to the anode (positively charged electrode) of the electrical circuit, while the jewelry piece is placed at the cathode (negatively charged electrode). Both are immersed in a specially developed electrolytic solution (bath).
At this point, a DC current is supplied to the anode, which oxidizes the metal atoms in the gold and dissolves them into the bath. The dissolved gold ions are reduced at the cathode and deposited (plated) onto the jewelry piece. Factors that impact the final plating result include:
- the chemical composition and temperature of the bath
- the voltage level of the electric current
- the distance between the anode and the cathode
- the electrical current application’s length of time
In addition to improving the appearance of the substrate, electroplating is used for multiple other purposes. A primary application is to improve the work piece’s resistance to corrosion. Other common uses of electroplating include:
- Building the thickness of a metal surface
- Increasing wear resistance
- Improving electrical conductivity — such as when plating a copper layer onto an electrical component
- Preparing surfaces for enhanced adhesion prior to painting or e-coating
- Reducing friction
- Protecting against surface abrasions
- Improving surface uniformity
