Powder coating

Powder coating is unlike paint in that it is applied as a dry powder, hence its name. The powder is applied to the object using an electrostatic gun which is then heated to 200 °C. The heat enables the thermoset powder to melt and then to form a polymer of a greater molecular weight. This creates a coating of a uniform thickness without runs.

Powder coat is also eco-friendly as over-spray material is collected and re-used which apart from being non-wasteful means it is not allowed to enter the atmosphere. Also going towards its green credentials, unlike many commercial paints, powder coat does not contain solvents or Volatile Organic Compounds.

The benefits of powder coating over paint finishes

  • It does not peel or flake when the substrate is flexed
  • No solvents are used in the process of powder coating – this produces a low fire risk finish and is also eco-friendly
  • Powder coat adheres strongly to the substrate and is corrosion-resistant
  • A uniform coating thickness is achieved
  • Resistant to UV light fading
  • Resistant to acids, solvents and cleaning fluids.
