What is Powder Coating?

It Looks Like Paint, But It Acts Like Armor!

It’s tough. It looks great, and it lasts a long, long time. Powder coating is a superior finish that’s found on hundreds of products you come in contact with each day. It makes products durable and attractive too. Powder coating is a completely dry finishing process used on a wide range of materials and products. Finely ground particles of pigment and resins are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto products to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrically grounded so the charged particles adhere to them until melted and fused into a solid coating in a curing oven with temperatures over 350 degrees.

Attributes of Powder Coating:

  • Tough
  • Attractive
  • Durable
  • High-Quality
  • Colorful
  • Versatile
  • Long Lasting

Unlike liquid paint, no solvents are used, so only negligible amounts of VOCs (Voltile Organic Compounds), if any, are released into the air.
Unused or oversprayed powder can be recovered, so any waste is minimal and can be disposed of easily and safely. The powder coating process is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution-free. Thousands of different kinds of parts and products are now powder coated.
