When you powder coat you have to acid wash the metal first so the powder will stick. You won't want to get the insulation wet or you'll have to let it dry in the batch oven a very long time. Also what happens is they spray the powder on and then roll into the oven. If they don't completly clean the floor and have very smooth wheel you loose powder in the transfer process. If it isn't atleast 3 mil thick water can get through the paint and start rusting the unit from under the paint popping it off. You really have to look hard to find a good powder coat company that will gaurantee their work and stand behind it. Your better off finding a good painter or use something like Stainless for the wrap. Good luck
