Powder coating

Powder coating – a painting process in which colored dry powder paint is used. The dry powder is provided a negative electrostatic charge (from 10,000 to 90,000 volts). Sometimes referred to as powder painting and dry painting. After the object is covered with paint – it goes into the oven where the paint melts evenly coating the surface. In the oven chemical compounds react with each other and polymerise improving paint quality characteristics. Powder coated surfaces are characterized by hardness, color, attractiveness, durability, high quality, scratch resistance and environmental impact. Wet paint requires a solvent and powder coating does not. This provides a firmer surface layer and protects better the surface from the environment.

Powder paint is usually made of polyester, polyurethane, polyester, epoxy resin and acrylic.

Powder paint manufacturing process:

  1. The polymer granules are mixed with hardener, pigments and other chemical components
  2. The mixture is heated
  3. This mixture is straightened out, cooled and crushed into small pieces
  4. These small pieces are very finely minced and you get powder paint, which is used in powder coating.

owder coating itself consists of three main processes:

  1. Surface preparation – when the surface is cleaned and chemically treated, if necessary – sandblasted and prepared for painting.
  2. Coating the surface with powder – when our camera equipment professionals spray paint on the surface.
  3. Heating of the paint in the oven where the powder melts seamlessly covering the object surface.

Powder coating benefits:

  • Protects surfaces from rust
  • Does not contain any toxic substances
  • Lots of options
  • Longest persistent color
  • Extremely long-lasting coating layer
  • Contains no harmful volatile organic compounds
  • It is possible to cover much thicker layer than with simple wet paint
  • Paint is economically consumed
  • Paint is processed on demand
  • Less harmful to the environment than the production of liquid paint
  • Extremely resistant to cracking, scratching, cracking, fading
  • Suitable for steel, galvanized surfaces, aluminum, steel, brass, copper, bronze, titanium, lead, etc.
  • Excellent and fully covers any details
  • Protects surfaces from UV rays
  • With special paints and technology ceramics, plastic, porcelain, MDF, glass and even a specially prepared wood can be painted
Powder coating Wet painting
Invented in the middle of 20th century Used for more than 40.000 years
Cheaper More expensive (the surface needs more pre-treatment, more manual work is required, sometimes a few layers are needed for the required final result)
Faster Slower
Thicker layer of paint Thinner layer of paint
Can be used for surfaces which are resistant to heat Can be used for all surfaces
The paint is very evenly spread on the surface The smoothness of the surfaces depends on the skills of the painter and the surface
Less harmful to the environment Non-recyclable, produced using toxic chemicals
More resistant to the impact of environment Thin layer of paint is less resistant to the impact of environment
Big variety of effects and colours Big variety of colours
All surfaces – horizontal and vertical – are covered with paint evenly To cover all surfaces – horizontal and vertical – evenly is very difficult
