Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a protective, tough, colorful finish to metal objects. A finely ground mixture of pigments that are positively charged are applied to an electrically grounded negative surface. Then they are fused together into a solid coating. Cured in an oven at over 400 degrees, the results are a high-quality, long-lasting, scratch-reisistant finish.
Benefits of Powder Coating
The advantages of powder coating are clear. Powder coated items are unaffected by UV light rays, acid rain and chemicals. They are also chip resistant, especially in adverse weather. Powder coating can be used on moving parts without cracking which is not possible with traditional paint. Unlike liquid paint, there are no solvents used and not toxic chemicals release into the air. The powder coating process is environmentally-friendly and is virtually pollution-free. Any unused or over spray powder can be recovered so waste is minimal and can be disposed of easily and safely.
