What is Powder Coating?
It Looks Like Paint But It Acts Like Armor.
It’s tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time. Powder coating is a superior finish that’s found on hundreds of products you come in contact with each day. It makes products durable, attractive, and scratch-resistant, too.
Powder coating is a completely dry finishing process used on a wide range of materials and products.
Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto products to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrically grounded so the charged particles adhere to them until melted and fused into a solid coating in a curing oven.
Attributes of powder coating:
Unlike liquid paint, no solvents are used, so only negligible amounts of VOCs, if any, are released into the air.
Unused or oversprayed powder can be recovered, so any waste is minimal and can be disposed of easily and safely.
The powder coating process is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution-free.
Thousands of different kinds of parts and products are now powder coated.
