Powder Coating

What is Powder Coating?

Powder Coating is one of the most popular finishing techniques available on the market. The industry has experienced an estimated 6% per annum growth since 2010 and has also undergone considerable technological leaps.

Powder Coating is a term used to describe a particular finish or base. It starts as a fine powder consisting of finely ground particles of pigment and polymer resin. The powder is applied to a surface and chemically altered with heat to create a finishing film.

What Do You Need To Know About The Process?

Preparation: Materials undergo a thorough cleaning process before Powder Coating application can start. Cleaning involves removing surface contaminants and preparing the surface for maximum adhesion between the material and the coating. Most issues with Powder Coatings result from improper preparation rather than a problem with the Powder Coating itself.

Attaching the Powder Coating to the product: Finishers either spray the Powder Coating onto prepared surfaces or dip the surface into a fluid containing particles of suspended Powder Coating. In either of these cases, the particles are bound to the item using electricity or heat.

Curing: After the Powder Coating is applied to the item’s surface, the item is moved into an oven. The heat causes the powder particles to melt, merging into a continuous film.

What Are The Benefits Of Powder Coating?

Powder Coating gives consumers, businesses, and industries one of the most economical, longest-lasting, and most colour-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal. Powder-Coated surfaces are much more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, or wearing compared to any other finishes.
