WHY CHOOSE POWDER COATING?
Powder Coating provides a very durable baked-on finish that remains smooth, easy to clean, and it contains none of the solvents or toxic byproducts of traditional liquid paints. The final product is highly resistant to most chemicals and salt, yet it demonstrates surface properties that can be as much as ten times more durable than ordinary paints, and can withstand temperatures of up to 250 sustained degrees F.
Powder coating has become the fastest growing finishing technology in North America, currently representing over 10 percent of the total industrial finishing market. More and more finishing engineers for all kinds of products have switched from liquid finishing to powder coating as a way to produce a high quality and durable finish while maximizing production, cutting costs, and complying with increasingly stringent environmental regulations.
Any industrial product benefits from the advantages of powder coating: improved appearance, exceptional toughness and durability, scratch-resistant, high quality, colorful, versatile, and long lasting. In addition to a wide range of colors and textures, and almost infinite range of properties can be built into the finish. Examples include resistance of ultra-violet rays, enhanced durability, and better corrosion resistance. Unlike liquid paint, no solvents are used, so only minimal amounts of VOC’s, if any, are released into the air. The powder coating process is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution-free.
Thousands of different kinds of parts and products are now powder coated. Examples include automotive parts, appliance skins, hospital equipment, metal furniture, electrical cabinets, lighting fixtures, farm implements, household items, ceiling fans, rims, snowmobile parts, bicycle frames, and tool boxes.
