Powder Coated Tough

What is powder coating?

Powder coating remains the fastest growing industrial finishing method in North America. Powder coating is applied to a countless array of products for a high quality and durable finish, resisting scratches, corrosion, abrasion, chemicals, and detergents. The powder coating process also maximizes production, improves efficiency, and offers maximum compliance with environmental regulations!

But what is it really?  Powder coating is dry finish process, using finely ground particles of pigment and resin, electrically charged and sprayed onto a part to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrically grounded so that the charged particles projected at them adhere to the surface and are held there until melted and fused into a smooth coating in the curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality finish.  Powder coating does not run, drip, or sag resulting in much a superior product.

The combination of proper metal pretreatment and powder coatings can provide outstanding corrosion resistance. Part of the reputation which powder has achieved for good corrosion resistance is related to powder’s ability to consistently deliver high film builds and good edge coverage. However, equally important are the facts that powders provide high crosslink density, good resistance to hydrolysis low moisture and oxygen transmission rates, and films free from traces of any residual solvents.

Another major perk of powder coating is it’s environmentally safe!  In an age where pollution and toxic chemicals are affecting our health and our children’s health, going green should be the goal of every manufacturer out there.  Without the use of solvents powder coating is extremely environmentally friendly thus eliminating VOC emissions.  Giving the part to be coated a charge and the applicator gun an opposite charge virtually eliminates overspray.  The result is a highly efficient, highly green method of coating pieces!

Always Exceeding Your Expectations.
