Powder Coating

Powder Coating is a method of spraying dry powder, applying the principle of static electricity in order to create a color protection surface suitable for multiplepurposes in the field of architecture and industry.

1. Advantages: 

- Environmental aspects

+ Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds.

+ Environmentally friendly and energy and material efficient.

+ Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings. No paint sludge is produced, as arises water-wash booths used to trap over-sprayed liquid paint.

+ Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.

+ As Powder Coatings are solvent-free, no oven is required for the flash-off of solvents before curing.

- Application aspects

+ Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.

+ One-coat application: a thicker, more uniform coating can be obtained by a single coating than can be achieved with wet paint.

+ A beautiful and uniform quality finish without paint runs.

+ A wide range of specialty effects is easily accomplished which would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes.

+ Choice of finishes - clear, plain color, metallic or textured.

+ Exceptional gloss and color retention.

- Technical aspects

+ Corrosion resistance.

+ Robust mechanical and chemical performance - good at resisting abrasion, acids, solvents, etc.

+ Good electrical insulation capabilities.

+ Applicable to steel, zinc, brass and aluminum.

- Productivity and Costs

+ Powder coating overspray can be recycled and thus it is possible to achieve nearly 100% use of the coating.

+ Cost-efficient on small batches or single items, thus ideal for job coaters.

+ Quick turnaround times.

2. Applications:

- Appliances

Appliance companies often benefit using powder coating applications on stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers, air conditioners, water heaters, microwave ovens, and many other areas. Many parts on washer and dryers are now powder coated instead of using porcelain enamel.

- Automotive

Powder coating is used for many areas of the automotive industry, including hubcaps, bumpers, wheels, decorative trim, door handles, truck beds, accent parts, filters, radiators, and various engine parts. Auto bodies are starting to include a clear powder topcoat to help increase protection. Volvo and BMW are both using powder coating on modern models, while Chrysler, Ford, and GM are working on testing powder coating techniques.

- Architecture and Building

Powder coating is being used in the architecture and building markets for frames, aluminum extrusions for doors and windows, along with modular furniture. There are various building and highway projects which use powder coating as well, including guardrails, light poles, fencing, posts, and signs.

- Everyday Products

More and more daily products are being powder coated to increase the quality of finishes. These products include antennas, lighting fixtures, and electrical elements. Poser coating is used in farming on tractors and other types of farm equipment. Fitness industries use powder coating on golf cards, golf clubs, ski poles, bicycles, snowmobiles, and various exercise equipment.
