What Is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between this process and conventional liquid paint, is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat in our ovens, to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. This achieves a tough, durable 'skin', which makes it well suited for components that are to be subjected to more adverse conditions. Vehicle suspension components, bicycle frames, road wheels, industrial machinery and component casings are just a few examples of parts that we are commonly asked to powder coat.
