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 can be applied to a range of different metals, such as household appliances, aluminium extrusions, cast outdoor furniture, mild-steel RHS, along with car and bike parts.
