How Powder Coatings Can Benefit Your Southern California Business

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Before embarking on any coating project, it’s important to understand all of your options. Powder coating is one of those options, which uses a free-flowing, dry powder. It forms a skin of paint and is typically used as a metal coating. Listed are some of its many advantages:

◾ Tougher and more durable than conventional paint, which means a longer paint life

◾ Incredible flexibility: can bend without cracking

◾ Various textures can be used in the application process, such as smooth, wrinkled, matte and rough appearances, and many other types of special effects that are not possible with other coating types

◾ Eliminates chipping and scratching of paint

◾ Horizontal and vertical coatings have fewer appearance differences and are applied evenly

◾ Environmentally-friendly in that it emits zero or nearly zero VOCs and is energy and material-efficient

◾ Resistant to heat, corrosion, impact, abrasion, sunlight fading and most chemicals and solvents

◾ Provides electrical insulation capabilities

◾ Single-coat application leaves thicker, more uniform coat than traditional paint and saves time

◾ Production lines for powder coatings use less hazardous waste

◾ The powder coating overspray can be collected and applied, thus 100% of the product is fully utilized.

Although powder coatings are easy to apply to smooth, texture-free surfaces, smooth, thin films can be more of a challenge. It’s best to consult professionals when deciding which coating type should be used on your specific project.
