Four Reasons Powder Coating is Better than Traditional Wet Paint Techniques

Powder Coating

Typically wet paint should be used in applications where the material being finished cannot withstand the heat necessary for powder coating. In nearly every other scenario, powder coating is superior. Powder coating is a dry finishing process that is used for protective and ornamental finishes in manufacturing. Over the years, powder coating has been made available in an increasing range of colors and textures. In this post we will look at five ways powder coating is the best option for your product finishing needs.

What's the Deal with Powder Coating?

What exactly is Powder Coating?

There are two types: Thermoplastic Powder and Thermoset Polymer. Thermoplastic Powder is generally applied with a fluidized bed process. First, the part is heated to a temperature above the melting point of the powder. Then, the heated part is dipped into a pool of free-flowing powder. As the part is dipped the powder around it melts and forms a smooth homogenous bond coating the surface. It can also be applied with an electrostatic spray process, where the part is heated to a temperature above the melting point of the powder, and then the powder is sprayed onto the heated part. The powder, upon contact, will melt onto the part and form a strong coating.
