Why Powder Coating?
Environmentally Compliant -
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 are more chip resistant and durable than paint, which can minimize shipping and handling damage. In an epoxy/ hybrid form, powder coating is known to be corrosion and chemical resistant. This results in a finish which is superior to most other organic coatings.
Cost Effective -
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 rejected parts.
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.
