How Powder Coating is so Time Efficient

Powder coating is utilised in a wide range industries, and one of the biggest reasons why it is so widely used is due to how time efficient it is. In industries where quicker turnaround times are of high importance, but not sacrificing quality is vital, powder coating has become the go-to method, addressing these needs effectively.


One of the biggest factors contributing to the time efficiency of powder coating is its streamlined application process. Unlike liquid painting which requires multiple coats, powder coating typically requires only a single application. This efficiency is due to the nature of the powder. Being electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the surface means the powder particles adhere to the sheet metal and create an even coat without the need for multiple layers. This cut’s down on time and streamlines the process.


Powder coating also gets rid of the need for drying time. Liquid paints rely on solvents to evaporate, and this can take a long time, especially when multiple coats are applied. However once powder coating is applied it’s cured through a heating process. The coated object is put into an oven where the powder melts and forms a durable, continuous layer. This curing process is significantly faster than waiting for paint to dry.


The efficiency of powder coating also goes beyond the application and curing stages. Its durability and resistance to chipping, scratching, and fading also impact on the finished products requiring less maintenance and fewer touch-ups over time. This longevity contributes to long-term time savings, as there is less need for re-coating or frequent maintenance.
