Benefits of Powder Coating Over Painting

Powder coating is one of the leading finishing methods in the industry as it provides a high quality, durable finish to a wide range of applications.

It is one of the most economical, longest lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal.

Provides a more durable finish

One of the top reasons for choosing powder coating over traditional painting methods is the durable finish it provides.

This coating can be found in everyday common items, or complex industry specific products. Powder coating finishes can also last up to 20 years, but due to the consistent use, exposure to UV light, and outdoor environment may break it down faster.

It offers more efficiency

Because of its durability, powder coating won’t need to be repainted on a regular basis like traditional spray painting typically requires. It also doesn’t chip, corrode, or fade like paints, which will make for greater efficiency at your job site.

Thermoplastic coatings can be reshaped very easily, unlike thermosets. The powder is also used precisely with minimal wastage, unlike paint, where you experience a lot of overspray.

It’s a safer option

Powder coating is created using a polymer resin system and combines curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers and other additives to make a powdered mix like flour. A process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) will then be used and a spray gun will be used to have the powder stick to your application.

The part that has been sprayed will then be cured at high heats to stick to the metal or other application.

This is a much safer process compared to a spray paint gun, which typically send solvents and volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) into the air. Powder coating does not have these VOCs or solvents, which will keep your employees safe.

It looks great

Lastly, powder coating simply gives your application a great appearance. It can be applied in a wide range of colors and textures to meet your preferences.
