POWDER COATING’S ADVANTAGES
Compared to most other finishing techniques, powder coating is:
- More durable
- Less expensive
- Environmentally friendlier
In addition, powder coating offers excellent adhesion and flexibility to handle part movement and temperature fluctuations.
POPULAR METALS TO POWDER COAT
Powder coating has become ubiquitous wherever parts have traditionally been painted. Any metal that holds an electrostatic charge and tolerates high temperatures is fair game for powder coating – that includes:
- Steel alloys
- Stainless steel
- Electroplated steel
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POWDER COATING AND PAINTING?
Powder coating provides an even, durable finish without dripping that can also protect the surface from potential damage and help resist rust.
Additionally, powder coatings are usually more environmentally friendly than traditional wet paint methods since they don't use solvents or hazardous materials during the application process.
Painting relies on liquid paints instead of powders which require drying times as well as multiple coats for a thicker finish.
