The Process

Powder coating is a dry finishing process which is applied to a surface, melted, and then allowed to dry and harden into a smooth and hard protective coating.

Compared to conventional liquid coatings, powder coating offers several advantages, such as:

  • More durable coatings
  • Capabilities for thicker and specialty finishes
  • Less environmental impact
  • More efficient curing and drying processes
  • Greater material utilization

More resistance to impact

Powder coated finishes are more resistance to impact, moisture, chemicals, and extreme weather than most liquid coatings of similar thickness. They are salt spray resistant and even after being subjected to extreme environments, the colour will remain brilliant and vibrant.

require much shorter time

Compared to liquid coatings, powder coatings require much shorter curing, processing, and drying times. Powder coating can be fully cured, on average, in ten minutes. Once cooled enough to handle, the part can be immediately assembled decreasing the turn around time dramatically in the coating process.

limits the types of materials

The heat curing process presents one major disadvantage to powder coating as it limits the types of materials which can be coated to materials able to withstand the curing temperatures of the oven without melting, burning, or deforming.
