What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a
decorative and protective finish to a wide range of materials and products
that are used by both industries and consumers. The powder used for the
process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which
is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere
to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth
coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality,
and attractive finish. Powder coating is the fastest-growing finishing
technology in North America, representing over 10% of all industrial
What are the advantages of Powder Coating over
Powder coating gives consumers, businesses, and industry one of the most
economical, longest-lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes
Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading,
and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with
high and low gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available. And colors stay
bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to
a wrinkled or matte finish, and rough textures designed for hiding surface
Protects the Environment
Powder coating is also highly protective of our environment. While liquid
finishes contain solvents which have pollutants known as volatile organic
compounds (VOCs), powder coating contains no solvents and releases
negligible amounts, if any, of VOCs into the atmosphere. Thus, there is no
longer a need for finishers to buy costly pollution control equipment. 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.
Elimination of VOCs and reduction of wastes saves money and helps companies
comply more easily and economically with the regulations of the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency.
In fact, one of the major elements in expanding the market for powder
coating has been the implementation over the past 30 years of stringent air
pollution control legislation.
