Durability Redefined: Powder Coating for Lasting Performance
For ultimate durability, the NV160 features a powder-coated finish instead of conventional wet paint. Powder coating involves the application of fine polyurethane particles that are electrically deposited onto the frame’s surface, which are then baked to melt and cure, forming a hardened shell upon curing. This exceptional coating provides enhanced resistance against chipping and adds an extra layer of durability, ensuring your frame stands the test of time.
