Benefits of Powder Coating

When you are looking for a way to protect your metal equipment, building materials, automotive parts, or everyday items, there are several coating methods you could use. The use of powder coating services gives your materials a strong durable paint surface that is also economical and is even environmentally friendly.

The Powder Coating Process

Powder coating services provide you with a paint coating that is both decorative and protective, and they can be applied to almost any metal that is used by consumers and industries. Powder coating is completed via a process by which a powder, made up of pigment and resin that has been ground up into fine particles, is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the metal. After the application of the powder, the coating is heated so that it is cured and fused into a nice, even, and smooth coating.

Highly Durable

When looking to protect your metals, using powder coating services will give you a highly durable result. Powder coating results in a coating that is 4 to 10 times thicker than wet paint, which greatly increases its resistance to damage from use, such as scratching, chipping, fading, and general wear, so you won’t have to repaint your metals nearly as often. As well, powder coating is going to be highly resistant to corrosion due to its durability, which means you’ll need to repair your parts less often due to corrosion damage.

Large Selection of Colors and Environmentally Friendly

If you are using powder coating services, you can be sure that it is an environmentally friendly option for having your metals painted. Wet paints often rely on solvents that rely heavily on volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), and when using a powder coating, there are no solvents used and the processes released very little to no VOC’s. Powder coatings also come in a vast selection of colors and finishes, anything from flat or satin finish to fluorescent, iridescent, or glitter are available to choose from. Furthermore, due to the durability of the powder coating, the colors and textures are going to stay in pristine condition for much longer than other coating methods.

Powder Coating is the Economical Option You Desire

Overall, powder coating services are going to help you save money in the long run with your coating needs. Due to the lack of VOCs involved, you will have to pay less money for equipment related to environmental clean-up and pollution control. This leads to your company being able to comply with regulations set out by the United States Environmental Protection Agency because changes in regulations over time have made wet coatings less favorable compared to powder coating. Moreover, the durability of powder coating means you are saving money by not having to coating your metals as often and not having to repair equipment due to corrosion damage.
