Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and applied to the part to be coated with a powder coating gun. The part is grounded so that the electrostatically charged powder particles adhere to the parts and are held there until they melt into a smooth coating in the curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality finish that is also environmentally friendly.
The powder is a solvent free mix of plastic resins, pigments, and fillers that melt and fuse when cured in an oven. The particles of powder are electrostatically charged in a powder coating gun and are carried by air to the surface of the part. The electrostatic charge holds the powder to the part while the part is cured in an oven. The heat of the oven cures the powder creating a highly durable finish.
Powder can be applied to intricate surfaces and still maintain a uniform finish across the entire piece.
Powder coating is resistant to chipping, and fading, colors of a powder coated item will remain true for years to come. High gloss, low gloss, textures, leatherette, even metallic and clear finishes are available.
Powder coating is a high performance finish that meets or exceeds solvent based coatings. In addition to the durability advantages its adhesion and chemical resistance properties are far superior to conventional finishes.
And the best part about choosing powder coating over traditional finishes is the environmental impact. The powder coating process emits no VOC’s.
