HOW POWDER COATING WORKS
Powder coating is a technical, high-quality finish that provides long-term durability. Powder coating is applied as a uniform powder similar to baking flour, which gives the surface a smooth texture, similar to paint. The powder coating process is typically done via electrostatic spray deposition (ESD), which causes an electrostatic charge on the powder particles, which are then attracted to the grounded area. After application of the powder coating, the parts enter a curing oven where, with the addition of heat, it chemically reacts and polymerizes to form long molecular chains, resulting in high crosslink density. These molecular chains are very resistant to breakdown and can provide corrosion protection for up to 7 years on steel!
DURABILITY OF POWDER COATING
Powder Coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. Powder coatings adhere better to the surface than traditional paints due to their thick polymer film. Our state-of-the-art equipment offers highly detailed powder coating finishes on a wide range of materials and colors. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading and other wear issues. It’s Tough! It looks great, and it lasts a long time! In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages.
