Appliances make up the largest part of the powder coating market. In fact, the appliance industry dominates roughly one-third of all industrial parts which are powder coated. Given such statistics, there are some great advantages to powder coating methods and processes that provide professional finishes to metal and metal products.
Powder Coating Basics
Powder coating is an advanced technique in which a technician uses both a protective as well as a decorative finish to an array of metals. Generally, the powder that is used during powder coating and liquid powder coating techniques offer metal professional finishes that are evenly applied. The powder is generally a combination of finely and expertly ground resin and pigment particles. Those particles are then sprayed onto the metal to be coated. After the powder is heated, fused, or cured into a smooth coating, the metals have professional finishes that are durable and even. The metal has a uniform and attractive finish.
Durability & Vibrancy
Two of the biggest benefits of powder coatings are durability and vibrancy. Powder coatings offer businesses one of the longest-lasting and affordable finishes for metals. The coatings are also resistant to chipping, fading, scratches, and wear. The colors will further remain vibrant and brilliant for years to come.
Another advantage to powder coating is the protection it offers to our environment. As many liquid coatings have solvents that may have pollutants, powder coating solutions are solvent-free and further release little to no traceable amounts of volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Given such, powder coating technicians will have no need to purchase as well as utilize pollution control tools and equipment.
Less Hazardous To Technicians
While powders are solvent-free, they’re less hazardous to the technicians who apply them. While providing professional finishes, powder coatings are also less irritating to the nose and the skin of the powder coating specialists. Typically, if the powder does get on a tech’s skin, it can be easily removed with warm water and a solvent or soap.
