What is powder coating?
Powder coating is a type of coating applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a liquid paint and a powder coating, is powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat, to allow it to flow and form a “skin”.
The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminium extrusions, automobile and bicycle parts.
Why choose powder coating?
