Powder Coating Masking Expertise
Powder coating masking solutions is where Echo's engineering capabilities really show. On top of our vast selection of high temp caps, plugs, tapes, and die-cuts, Echo also offers hanging hooks and extensive custom solution capabilities primarily used on finishing lines of some of the world's most well known heavy machinery, automotive, and powersport manufacturers.
Custom Molded Masking Solutions
Our engineers have designed thousands of custom rubber masking solutions used during powder to speed up their production, improve quality, and reduce costs.
We've seen it all, from powder coat building up around areas, overspray, leakage, high-temperature ovens, caps/plugs blowing out, and coaters having to retap threads.

Rubber Materials for Powder Coating
High-Temp Formulated Silicone
The majority of Echo's masking caps and plugs are made from a custom formulated silicone meant to withstand temperatures up to 600F
Conductive silicone is commonly used by powder coaters when they need the charge to pass through a mask, rather from metal-to-metal contact (like from a hook)
Red Iron-Oxide Silicone
Red iron-oxide silicone is great for when paint/powder flaking is an issue. Due to the iron-oxide in the silicone, the powder will adhere more to the mask
Masking Tapes & Die-Cuts
Masking tapes used during powder coating need to be highly heat resistant, leave no residue, form an effective seal, and leave a clean line your customer is looking for.
Echo specializes in high-temperature tapes and die-cuts designed specifically for Powder Coating. Our team is equipped to recommend the best tape material for your needs and engineered custom die-cuts to help speed up your process and improve overall quality.
