Powder coating is a finishing process where thermoplastic or thermoset powder is applied to a surface, melted and then hardened to create an even coating. You can powder coat a number of materials such as metal, plastic, glass and fibreboard. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider powder coating:
Powder coating is more cost effective than traditional liquid coating methods. This is owed to the fact that it has a much quicker turnaround time and greater coating material utilization. Because the curing stage of powder coating allows parts to be assembled and shipped immediately after cooling, the part spends much less time in storage. This enables us at Modern Powder Coating to provide you with a fast turnaround time and a resulting lower cost due to less storage requirements. In addition, powder coating allows for excess spray material to be collected and recycled instead of wasted. This decreases the amount of waste product, increases the material utilization rate, and lowers the cost of materials over time.
Powder coating provides both a functional and decorative finish that is not achievable by traditional liquid coating methods. Powder coating can be manufactured in virtually any colour. You can request a variety of finishes including matte, glossy, glittered or metallic, it is also possible to apply textures which can be beneficial in hiding any surface imperfections.
Powder coating is more long-lasting and durable than liquid coating. Powder coating has a higher resistance to moisture, chemicals, impact, and wear such as scratches, abrasions, corrosion, fading etc. These benefits make powder coating an ideal choice for any for high use and high traffic applications.
Powder coating is environmentally friendly. The lack of solvent, carbon dioxide emissions, and hazardous waste that requires disposable, means that powder coating substantially limits the amount of toxic substances being released into the environment.
