Powder coating is a sort of magnetic change goining through the particles which sticks to the metal, anodizing is a process of making the metal take a charge and having the color go in the pores.

^^ Thats me.

For a more complete answer, powder coating is a chrage goin to the particles flying through the air and adhearing onto the metal. When an piece is anodized it opens up the pores so the color can soak in.

Can both powder coating and annodizing be used for any type of metal? Im pretty sure that you cant annodize a Tippman 98, but I could be wrong...???
