Powder Coatings

Industry Overview:

Powder coatings offer several functional and aesthetic advantages over traditional liquid paints. The small particle size and spray delivery allows for thicker applications without worries of running or sagging, and even the thinner applications won’t show horizontal or vertical brush strokes. Because there is no solvent needed to suspend binders and fillers, there are few to no volatile organic compounds released into the atmosphere as the coating dries. The unused and oversprayed powder is easily recovered to be either reused or safely disposed of.

Additionally, powder coatings are stronger and more durable than liquid paints. They are more resistant to wear issues including scratches, chips, fading and corrosion. They are not easily affected by weathering, moisture, or bumps and other impacts. These properties are thanks to the high cross-link density long molecular chains that are created through the electrostatic spray and heat curing processes.

Common Applications:

  • Pre-treatment
  • Phosphates, chromates, etc.
  • Materials – polymer resin, etc.
  • Curing – curatives, drying ovens, etc.
  • Pigments
  • Leveling agents
  • Application processes
  • Conveyors, racks etc.
  • Software – measuring, etc.
  • Masking
  • Environmental regulation
