Why Powder Coating?
Powder coatings meet EPA standards since no solvents are
released into the atmosphere. Therefore, costly air pollution control
equipment is not necessary. Waste is negligible. In addition, cleanup is
performed without the use of solvents, and health and safety concerns
are minimized due to a clean work environment.
Powder coatings resist cracking, peeling or marring, which can minimize
shipping and handling damage. The finish also reduces porosity,
resulting in less surface imperfections. Extremely abrasion, corrosion
and chemical resistant, powder coatings provide a finish which is
superior to most other organic coatings.
The use of powder coatings reduces equipment, energy, labor, and
production costs compared to conventional liquid systems. Powder is
supplied in a ready-to-use condition--no mixing or viscosity control is
necessary. A wide variety of coatings chemistries can be applied with
the same equipment, the desired film thickness can be achieved in a
single pass for most applications, and the process produces fewer
Powder coatings offer excellent uniformity without sags, drip marks and
other surface irregularities. Just as with liquid paints, powder
coatings are offered in various colors and gloss levels and can be
custom blended to match your needs. In addition, powder coated parts can
be machined and most powder coatings are recoatable.
