Advantages of Powder Coating
Powder Coating gives consumers, businesses, and industry one of the most economical, longest-lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available.
The emergence of Epoxy Powder Coatings, including Zinc Rich Epoxies, gives industrial consumers the option of Powder Coating projects where corrosion resistance is critical.
Powder Coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with high and low gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available, and colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte finish, and rough textures designed for hiding surface imperfections.
Powder Coating is an environmentally friendly coating process. While liquid finishes contain solvents which have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), Powder Coatings contain no solvents and release negligible amounts of VOC's into the atmosphere. Overspray and unused material is easily and safely disposed of in ordinary landfills as there are no solvents or chemicals involved.
Of particular importance to us is also that the work environment is safe and worker friendly. Due to the fact that there are no solvents, this means there is no odor. Powder Coating materials are removed from skin using soap and water, rather than harsh chemicals that irritate the skin.
Elimination of VOCs and reduction of waste saves money and helps companies comply more easily and economically with environmental regulations. In fact, one of the major elements in expanding the market for Powder Coating has been the implementation over the past 30 years of stringent air pollution control legislation.
The fact that Powder Coatings are 100% solids and that the transfer efficiency is significantly better than liquid finishing processes means that more product lands on the parts being coated. Unused product is taken from the hopper, re-packaged, and returned to the storage shelf to be used another day. Less overspray, less waste, and less effort means we all save money.
