What Is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder.
The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that coating does not require a solvent. Parts are cured under heat to allow the paint to flow and form a "skin." Curing time is much faster than with liquid paint.
The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer, and creates a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
Why Powder Coat?
One of the fastest growing paint applications in the country for good reason.
A significant difference between industrial wet painting and powder coating is the presence of Volatile Organic Compounds, called VOCs for short. VOCs (like formaldehyde) are released into the air over time, either as the paint is cured or as it ages. VOCs damage the ozone and, if trapped indoors, can cause serious health problems to people exposed to them. Compared to liquid paint, powder coating is highly durable against chipping and long lasting against the effects of weather. It contains a thick, dense finish that is environmentally safe compared to wet paint applications.
Application is fast, easy and efficient with drips and runs never being an issue.
