BENEFITS OF POWDER COATING

Environmental – powder coatings generally produce no volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and most powder coatings are free of any heavy metals or other hazardous materials.

Consistent Quality – powder coatings eliminate need for solvent mixing or colour tinting providing consistent colour matching and more efficient application

Easy to Apply – powder coatings are applied in a single application without drips runs or sags. If a problem is detected before the part enters the oven the powder can easily be removed and re-applied.

Superior Performance – powder coatings are generally harder and offer improved impact, abrasion, chemical resistance, and superior weatherability over most liquid coatings.

Safety – powder coatings have far less risk of fire and explosion as compared to liquid solvent paints – download the relevant Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)

PERFORMANCE

Unlike solvent based wet paint systems, powder coating is an environmentally friendly process which provides a durable finish that is resistant to cracking and peeling when the surface is treated and the powder is applied correctly.

While powder coatings are considered extremely resilient because of their excellent chip resistance, hardness and or chemical resistance there are many aspects to consider when determining the longevity of powder coatings including the nature of the application and the surrounding environment. Salt, pollution and general deposits will effect the lifespan of the product and it is suggested that you follow a maintenance program to assist the longevity of the coating.
