What is Powder Coating?
Powder Coating is an advanced yet simple way of spraying a very fine, dry plastic powder
paint onto a metal surface. As the powder paint cloud gently leaves the front of the spray gun, it is charged
with static electricity. The charge attracts the powder paint to the part that requires coating. The part is then
placed in an oven and baked. While in the oven, the powder paint melts into a durable finish.
Powder coat is available in a number of formulations, such as, epoxy, urethane, polyester, or hybrid. The correct powder depends upon what physical properties you desire for the finished product, such as, chemical resistance, corrosion protection, ultraviolet sensitivity, or flexiblity.
