benefits of powder coatings

Powder coatings are solvent-free enamels manufactured using a 3-step process (Powder coatings production). The powder coating is applied to the part or component by electrostatic spraying equipment or in a tribostatic process. In a subsequent curing process, the powder coating is melted and chemically cross-linked at substrate temperatures of 302 to 392 °F (150 to 200 °C).

The success story of powder coating begins with industrial surface finishing in the 1960s (History of powder coating) and continues to develop as the technology has many advantages:

  • No solvents
  • Virtually 100% material utilization
  • Easy to process and clean
  • Applicable on many substrates
  • Protective and decorative
