Powder Coating – Not Just for Manufacturers!
Powder coating might be an advanced technology that offers benefits to manufacturers all over the globe, but this respectable and high-quality colouring technique isn’t reserved for those in the industry. UK Powder Coating Services have completed products for domestic manufacturers as well as commercial clients from a wealth of different industries. Powder coating is more common than you might think, and we’ve compiled a list of industries that reap the benefits.
Our powder coating team regularly undertake projects for the construction industry who use the process because of the extremely robust and armour-like layers that the powder can produce, which serves as protection for the metal underneath. A properly coated item can shield the meal from heat, abrasion, liquid penetration, corrosion, UV rays and harsh chemicals making it ideal for being on construction sites without being compromised.
It is for the same reasons that the defence and military sectors regularly make use of powder-coated products. Defensive assets can cover everything from armour to vehicles all of which has to stand up to varied conditions in deployment and help to protect the people and causes that are involved.
Often it surprises people, but many home items are powder coated both for durability and to bring aesthetic appeal to a product. The process of powder coating can help to prolong the life of metal items that are prone to being bashed such as table legs, chairs, cupboard doors and appliances and can bring bright and bold colours to otherwise quite plain-looking metals.
Powder-coated items are used heavily throughout the medical and pharmaceutical fields and are used to coat everything from surgical implements through to hospital beds. The most common reason that powder coated items are utilised in this field is that they can withstand harsh cleaning chemicals and high sterilising temperatures needed to maintain maximum hygiene.
