POWDER COATING 101

What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as dry powder, i.e. a dry finishing process. Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electro-statically charged and sprayed on to the surface to be coated. Electro-static attraction holds the powder to surface till the surface is cured in an oven under controlled high temperatures, which results in the particles melting and fusing to form a smooth solid coating.


Differentiating from Conventional Technology:

Powder coating, a relatively newer technology, has replaced liquid paint in many applications. Unlike liquid paint powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in liquid suspension form.


Some of the advantages powder coating has over the conventional liquid paint technology are:

  • Near zero emission of volatile organic compounds (which may be harmful & toxic).
  • Comparatively thicker coatings without running or sagging.
  • Overspray is recycled, thus minimizing the waste of powder to almost zero.
  • Produces less hazardous waste.
  • There is no need to maintain viscosity balance.
  • Rejection of material to be coated is highly minimized because damaged coating can be blown off and re-coated.
