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 the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint."

Why Powder Coating?

  1. Powder coatings emit near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC) and therefore is the most eco friendly coating substance and method available.
  2. Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging and cures instantly after the heating process.
  3. Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
