Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and
protective finish to a wide range of materials and products that are
used by both industries and consumers. The powder used for the process
is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which
is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles
adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused
into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable,
high-quality, and attractive finish. Powder coating is the fastest-growing
finishing technology in North America, representing over 10% of all
industrial finishing applications.
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, attractive,
and scratch-resistant, too.
Powder coating is a dry finishing process. Finely ground particles
of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto
the products to be coated.
The parts to be coated are electrically grounded, so that the charged
particles adhere to them until melted and fused into a solid coating
in a curing oven.
The result is an attractive, durable, high-quality finish. The powder
coating process itself offers another advantage -- it is environmentally
Unlike liquid paint, no solvents are used, so only negligible amounts
of VOCs are released into the air. In addition, unused or oversprayed
powder can be recovered, so any waste is minimal and can be disposed
of easily and safely.
