Powder Coating: A Brief Overview

Powder coating technology has existed for five decades. Like its liquid-based counterpart, it can be applied to a surface using a spray gun. Unlike liquid paint, however, it uses the power of electricity — namely, a corona charge — to attract to its intended area. This static-electric property makes it an ideal paint choice for aluminum and metal surfaces.

Once the powder coating has been applied, it is baked on to harden the surface. This is called “curing” and makes for a very strong finish.

Why Powder Coating?

There are a large variety of reasons why powder coating would make a great choice for your business. Let’s take a look at a few of these reasons and consider why powder coating would make a great solution for you:

● Unlike their conventional liquid counterparts, powder coatings do not require solvents. Solvents can be toxic to humans and the earth’s ecosystem. Choosing powder coatings can help reduce the amount of solvents present in our world.
● Powder coatings release extremely low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), reducing health risks.
● Powder coating offers a stronger finish than liquid paint and can help protect your surfaces from dings and dents.
● The powder coating process can be more efficient and less wasteful than its liquid paint equivalent.
● The powder coating process can be faster than its liquid paint counterpart. Color changes, disposal and coating times are far less than liquid coating.
● Powder coating is available in low/satin, medium, or high gloss finishes. All RAL colors are available.
