What is the process of powder coating?

Powder Coating is a type of dry coating process that is a free-flowing, dry powder, and does not require a solvent. It utilizes finely ground particles of pigment and resins such as epoxy and polyester that is then heated to a temperature that will allow the powder to melt on contact with it and form a smooth bond. Powder coatings can either be applied electrostatically or by fluidized bed, where it is cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin" that adheres to the part until it melts and solidifies. Powder coatings can utilize either Thermoplastic or Thermoset polymer, which is much tougher than conventional paint.

In addition to metal Powder Coating Service, Wright Coating Technologies offers “ClassicKote,” a process for Powder Coating of plastic substrates.

Is Powder Coating Better Than Painting?

Powder coatings provide better performance than traditional wet painting as it is more rugged and resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and weathering. Powder-coated surfaces also resist chipping, scratching, and other wear much more effectively than wet paint. 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 more superior. Powder coatings are less expensive in comparison to paint and can cover more area than most finishers, which means lower material costs than wet painting processes.

Traditional wet paint is also extremely flammable and contains carcinogens and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Not surprisingly, these chemicals are hazardous to plant employees if proper precautions are not met. Powder coatings do not contain VOCs and are without solvents, meaning they pose much less of a chemical risk to workers. Beyond being a risk to workers, VOCs and solvents also create a pollution concern. Powder coating is a much cleaner process, as well. Overspray can be gathered and reused, and unused powder can be retrieved and put back in a hopper for recirculation, eliminating a lot of waste. 

Powder Coating Advantages

There are several advantages to powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:

  • Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC)
  • Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging
  • Powder coating overspray can be recycled making it possible to achieve nearly 100% use
  • Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings
  • Powder-coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items
  • A wide range of specialty effects are easily accomplished which would be impossible with other coating processes
  • Able to handle small parts up to 26” x 12” x 52”

Application Methods

Industrial & Commercial Powder Coating Methods.

Powder Coating on MetalEpoxy (Electrostatic Spray) – Epoxy based Electrostatic Spray powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates, i.e. steel & aluminum, for a wide variety of applications from corrosion. Epoxy coatings are Thermoset Polymer coatings. They come under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. Epoxy-based Electrostatic Spray powder coating is applied through a spray process where the part is electrostatically sprayed with a dry powder that is fluidized with air and then is post cured. Electrostatic Sprayed Epoxy is generally applied at a thickness ranging from 1.5 – 4.5 mils (thousandths of an inch). The name “Epoxy” is due to resin cross-linking and the application method, which is different from a conventional paint. The resin and hardener components in the dry powder form do not react in normal storage conditions. Typical coating application temperatures are usually in the range of 180°C to 250 °C (360°F to 480 °F). Epoxy-based powders are not recommended for exterior type applications.

Epoxy (Fluid Bed) – Epoxy based Fluid Bed powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates, i.e. steel & aluminum, for a wide variety of applications from corrosion. Epoxy Fluid Bed coatings are Thermoset Polymer coatings. They come under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. The Fluid Bed process is generally used when a part requires a thicker coating as compared to electrostatic spray powder coating. The Fluid Bed Epoxy coating is applied through a dip process where the part is preheated and dipped into a dry powder that is fluidized with air and then posts cured. Fluid Bed Epoxy is generally applied at a thickness ranging from 5 – 30 mils (thousandths of an inch). The name “Epoxy” is due to resin cross-linking and the application method, which is different from a conventional paint. The resin and hardener components in the dry powder form do not react in normal storage conditions. Typical Epoxy coating application temperatures are usually in the range of 180°C to 250 °C (360°F to 480 °F). Epoxy-based powders are not recommended for exterior type applications.

Polyester (Electrostatic Spray) – Polyester based Electrostatic Spray powder coating is widely used to protect a variety of metal substrates, i.e. steel & aluminum, for a wide variety of applications from corrosion. Polyester coatings are Thermoset Polymer coatings. They come under the category of 'protective coatings' in paints and coating nomenclature. Polyester Electrostatic spray powder coating is applied through a spray process where the part is electrostatically sprayed with a dry powder that is fluidized with air and then is post cured. Electrostatic Sprayed Polyester is generally applied at a thickness ranging from 1.5 – 4.5 mils (thousandths of an inch). The name Polyester is due to resin cross-linking and the application method, which is different from a conventional paint. The resin and hardener components in the dry powder form do not react in normal storage conditions. Typical coating application temperatures are usually in the range of 180°C to 250 °C (360°F to 480 °F). Polyester based powders are recommended for both interior and exterior type applications.
