What is powder coating?
Powder coating is a dry finish process that uses finely ground powders of pigment and resin to coat the surface. Powder coating uses an electrostatic charged technique in which the powders are charged so that powder particles adhere to the metal surface and are then melted and fused together in the curing process. Since it’s introduction in North America, powder coating has become the fastest growing finishing technology, representing over 10 percent of the total industrial finishing market. More and more finishing engineers for a countless array of products have switched from liquid finishing to powder coating as a way to produce a high quality and durable finish while maximizing production, cutting cost, improving efficiency, and complying with increasingly stringent environmental regulations.
Why powder coating?
Powder coating is significantly more durable than conventional paints. It is extremely resistant to chips, scratches, fading and wearing than other finishes. Also, corrosion resistance properties are difficult to achieve with other methods or materials. Powder coating is environmentally friendly and there are no solvents or hazardous material used.
Protects the Environment
While liquid finishes contain solvents that have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), powder coating contains no solvents and releases negligible amounts, if any, of VOC’s into the atmosphere. In addition, most powder coating overspray that does not adhere to the part can be retrieved and reused, virtually eliminating the waste commonly found in liquid finishing processes.
Powder coating gives the consumer, businesses, and industry one of the most economical, longest-lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available. Surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited.
