Powder Coating Services

Powder coating has become popular over the last four decades as a simple dry finishing process that protects and decorates. They are available in a near-limitless range of colors and textures, and recent advancements have improved on the performance of the coatings. The coating is based on a polymer resin system and combined with curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and a range of other additives. Electrostatic spray deposition is used to apply the coating to a metal substrate using a spray gun. The gun applies and electrostatic charge to the particles, which are attracted to the grounded part.

After applying the powder, the parts enter a curing oven. The heat from the oven chemically reacts and produces long molecular chains that result in high cross-link density. These chains are highly resistant to breakdown. This is the most common method of application. They can also be applied to plastics and Medium Density Fiberboard. No matter which application is used, powder coating is easy to use, environmentally friendly, cost effective, and tough.
