Posted at 18:50h
Powder coating is a process usually applied to a metal part for protective or decorative purposes. It can also be applied to plastics and fiberboard (MDF).
As the name suggests, powder similar to baking flour in appearance and density is then applied onto a metal component using a process called electrostatic spray deposition. What this basically means is that the powder particles are given an electrostatic charge and are then attracted to the grounded component.
After it has been powder coated, it enters a curing oven that results in the creation of highly resistant and long molecular chains that create a layer over the component. This final coat protects the base material from outside environment.
Powder coating can be applied in a wide range of colours and textures and is widely popular in industrial finishing market due to its high quality, durability, cost efficiency, scratch resistance and its resilience to corrosion, fading and abrasions.« Back to Glossary Index
