Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied onto metal as a dry powder and bound and sealed through a heating process for a hard finish. What are the benefits of powder coating compared to traditional paint?
- Faster to apply than liquid paint.
- More durable.
- Less expensive.
- Does not have the negative environmental impact that liquid paint has.
Powder Coating Process
The powder coating process starts with a metal part ready for finishing. The part is cleaned with a chemical cleaner and dried in an oven. Then the powder is applied to the part using an electrostatic process. Electrostatic coating is the process of applying charged particles onto a metal part for a more efficient paint coating.
After the powder is applied to the part, it is then cured in an oven at an average temperature of 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 10 minutes. The time depends on the type of powder and the thickness of the part.
