Powerful Points on Powder Coating!
The advanced process of powder coating is used in both applications for protecting and embellishing metal items. The method uses a powder consisting of resin and minuscule pigment particles electrostatically sprayed onto metal surfaces. The powder particles then become electrically grounded, fusing with the metal once it's cured. But what are its benefits compared to traditional wet paint?
Powder coating is stronger than traditional paint, making it extremely durable, scratch resistant, and hard enough to withstand impact without damage while remaining pliable. More immune to fading, wearing and drastic weather conditions, powder coated sheet metal can stand the test of time.
In addition to powder coating providing a great finish, it is also much better for the environment compared to traditional wet paint services. Liquid paint contains harmful solvents that are known to be harsh pollutants. However, powder coating does not contain any solvents, and only releases minuscule amounts of volatile organic compounds if any into the atmosphere. This means that finishers no longer have a need for purchasing and maintaining expensive equipment for pollution control, making the service more sustainable and allowing us to provide a cheaper service.
While traditional paint must be left to dry for several days to ensure it is finished correctly, powder coated items can be moved immediately into a curing oven where they will dry in just a short period of time. With the conveyorised system on our fully automated paint line, we don't have to have to wait for human intervention in the process, and your powder coated item moves effortlessly from step to step, meaning we can get your product to you without delay.
