What is the Process for Powder Coating?
What is Powder Coating Used for?
Powder coating can be used for almost any surface where an even, highly durable coating is required. Common applications include automotive uses, aerospace, general industrial, utilities, medical and food & beverage solutions.
How Long Does a Powder Coat Finish Last?
Depending on the type of powder coat used, the substrate and the product application, powder coating can be expected to last anywhere from twenty to forty years or more.
What Are the Benefits of Powder Coating?
The main benefits of powder coating are:
- Greater Durability – Powder coating can last for decades, even in challenging conditions.
- Greater Economy – There is far less product wastage when powder coating is used, in comparison with painting.
- A Greener Choice – Powder coatings do not evaporate or release VOCs during the application process.
How Does Powder Coating Work?
Powder coating works due to electrostatic charges between the underlying surface and the coating particles. The positive electrostatic charge of the surface strongly attracts the coating, forming a strong bond which is further cemented by the chemical changes which occur during the curing process.
