What is powder coating?
Powder Coating is the application of a plastic resin and pigment to a surface in a uniform thickness. Special application equipment fluidizes the powder, gives it an electrostatic charge, and broadcasts it toward the grounded surface. Once the powder has been applied, the powder is then heated (time and temperature varies) and the plastic resin will melt and liquefy. It will then chemically and mechanically adhere to the surface, and cure before it comes out of the oven. This results in a smooth, attractive, durable, and scratch resistant coating.
Why choose powder coating over other coating or plating processes?
- The process is environmentally safe.
- An endless variety of colors, finishes and formulations.
- High UV protection.
- Excellent durability.
- Cost effectiveness.
