How Powder Coating Finishing Works
Powder coatings are based on polymer resin systems. Curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives combine to make it. Use these ingredients to create a uniform powder by melt mixing, cooling, and then grounding. Which brings us to the process of electrostatic spray deposition (ESD), the most common method of applying powders. This process is typically used to achieve the application of the powder coating to a metal substrate. ESD uses a spray gun. The gun applies an electrostatic charge to the powder particles. The particles then attract to the grounded part.
After the application of the powder coating, the parts enter a curing oven. With the addition of heat, the coating chemically reacts and produces long molecular chains. The end result is a high cross-link density, since the molecular chains are very resistant to breakdown.
Also apply powder coatings to non-metallic substrates, like plastics and medium-density fiberboard (MDF).
WHAT IS POWDER COATING?
Powder coating is a dry finishing process. It has become very popular since its introduction in the 1960s. In fact, it is so popular that powder coating now represents over 15% of the total industrial finishing market. Powder coatings allow for a high-quality, durable finish, as well as allowing for maximized production, improved efficiencies, and simplified environmental compliance. So it is no wonder many companies use it.
Powder coatings are commonly used as functional (protective) and decorative finishes. They are available in an almost limitless range of colors and textures, making for the perfect finish. And the performance of the coating is exceptional.
Powder coating is a high-quality finishing that you can find on many day-to-day products. Finishing items with powder coating protects against the roughest, toughest machinery, as well as the household items you depend on a daily basis. This finishing provides a more durable finish than liquid paints all while still providing an attractive finish.
Powder-coated products are also more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. As a result, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, fading, corrosion, abrasions, and other wear and tear issues.
