Why Choose Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a dry finishing method introduced in America in the 1960s that has exploded in popularity to serve over 15% of the manufacturing finishing marketing. The process is now used in a wide range of industries from military defence to domestic appliances.
Why is it so popular?
Powder coating offers a durable outer shell, protecting the metal underneath from UV Rays, heat, abrasion, and more. The dry-finish means that the protective shield can be generously applied without sacrificing that flawless finish. Even thin layers are more resistant to chipping and scratching than standard wet paints, but you can also heavily coat items designed for harsh environments or extensive use.
The ability for sterilisation is also a key feature. The shield like finish of a powder coat offers resistance to cleaning chemicals and the forces of nature. There is also no possibility for unpleasant finishes that leave bubbles or imperfections that can hide germs.
Not only does powder coating achieve a longer lifespan for metal and corrosion resistance but there are bright, bold colours that other paints simply cannot achieve.
