What is powder coating?

Advantage of powder coating

The powder coating process is extremely efficient. Most jobs require only one coat, which helps to minimize project costs. Powder coating is cheaper than wet paint and results in less product wastage and excellent durability. It is also easy to adapt the coating thickness to meet the protective requirements of the project.

Powder coating is an excellent choice for applications where aesthetic appeal is important. Coatings are available in a wide variety of colours and speciality effects to produce the desired appearance of the work piece. Powder coating also exhibits fewer differences between horizontally and vertically coated surfaces, which ensures a more consistent appearance throughout the product.

In an era where compliance with environmental regulations is essential for companies in all industries, the powder coating process offers an eco friendly alternative to liquid painting and other commonly applied metal finishing techniques. Most powder coated products are free from potentially harmful chemical solvents and release few or no volatile organic compounds (VOC) into the atmosphere.
