Why Powdercoat

Powder coating is a dry clean finish that gives a highly durable coating. In the long run, powder coating will save you money, time and the need to use volatile organic compounds.

Powder coating has been increasingly accepted as the preferred industrial finishing process. The reasons for this use of powder coating can be attributed to three major forces:


1) 96% of the powder coatings applied can be applied to the part being coated.

2) Powder coating is not an industrial pollutant.

3) Powder coating is recognized by the industrial sector, as the most cost effective means of corrosion control.


1) The cured powder finish is less susceptible to damage than a liquid finish.

2) A range of powders such as epoxy provides coating  flexibility.

3) Polyester powders provide additional advantages in ultraviolet and weathering resistance.


1) Stringent regulations are being aggressively enforced in an effort to control air pollution and hazardous waste disposal. Powder coating is the overwhelming preference of the EPA.

2) Powder coating eliminates solvent fumes and VOC's from the coating process. 

3) There is no hazardous waste associated with powder coatings.


Powder is a dry pigment which is thermally fused or melted to the surface to be protected. Instead of disolving the coating pigment in a solvent for painting or spraying, Fusion Bonded Powder is applied in a granular form. There are many types of powder, although epoxy is the industrial favorite, the particular conditions to which a part will be exposed will determine the kind of powder such as Polyester, Kynar,Teflon, or TGIC to be used. More than one type of powder may be used on a single part and virtually any color is now available.


The application process involves applying a charge to the dry powder particles and spraying them onto a grounded substrate. The substrate, or part, is typically grounded through the conveyor or hanger holding the part. The powder, once attracted to the part, is then held on the surface until it is melted and cured into a smooth corrosion, impact, and chemically resistant coating.
