Powder Coating

What Is It?

Powder-coating is an electrostatically applied powder form paint that cures under heat. It is usually applied by air-fed machines that can be manually or automatically operated. In brief, the powder is attracted to the metal and will begin to bond itself to the product when the curing operation is underway, when complete, the product will be removed from an oven and begin to cool, once cool the coating is complete.

 

There are many different processes undertaken, some substrates such as hot-dip-galv will require de-gassing methods or primers prior to coating. Aluminium, mild steel, stainless steel etc all have different processes involved in achieving the best finish and adhesion.

Regardless of what type of metal is used, each substrate will have to be prepared first in order to achieve the best results (e.g chemically cleaned, media blasted etc). 

All products require different levels of protection due to different environments (e.g highly polluted environments, interior environments with low humidity, coastal areas with high levels of salt etc). If you would like to find out more or have any questions please get in touch today.
