Powder coating is a dry finishing process that was introduced to North American markets in the 1970s. Powder coating involves applying an electrostatically charged dry powder to unpainted parts. The parts are typically metal, but powder coats can be selectively applied to other heat resistant substrates. After the powder is applied, the parts are heated, which causes the powder to fuse into a durable skin. Powder coating can be applied in many colors to enhance aesthetics and offers both corrosion protection and UV resistance.
Benefits of Powder Coating
- Single coat applications produce thick durable coatings without runs or sags.
- Most of the oversprayed material can be reclaimed and reused.
- Textured appearances can be formulated into powder.
- Powder coated parts have 100% of their performance attributes as soon as they have cooled.
- Emits virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
- Can be safely disposed of in landfills.
