Powder coating is one of the most popular techniques in the coating industry. It offers superior features when compared to conventional wet painting. From heavy industrial equipment to small home appliances, powder coating is used in every industry. Powder Coating stands apart due to the many advantages it offers. The following benefits are the top for most manufacturers.
Responsible manufacturers are seeking environment-friendly solutions to the various processes they need and a powder coating is one of the best options. The Volatile Organic Compounds found in wet paint are non-existent in powder coating, making it an environment-friendly technique in the paint coating industry.
Another benefit of choosing powder coating is its low price as compared to the traditional wet painting. The over-sprayed particles do not go to waste because they are recoverable. Less waste equates to the lowering of the overall consumption costs. Moreover, it is relatively easy to train employees in this technique.
Consistent and Durable Finish
Powder coating technology provides smoother and better-finished surfaces while giving the user complete control of the process. It helps in saving time and protects the surfaces from scratches and abrasion.
Issues to avoid
Even though powder coating offers many benefits, some problems could require attention. These are common problems and identifying them before application helps save time and money. Poor grounding of the conveyor line, the part itself, and lack of maintenance can cause improper film build-up, reducing the quality of the finish. It is essential to understand that spraying excessive powder at high velocity will not enhance the quality of the products but instead reduces it. The key to best quality powder coating is spraying the right amount of powder with minimum air.
