PPC - Polyester Powder Coating
Powder coating is a type of coating that has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its durability and versatility. Unlike traditional liquid paints, powder coating is a free-flowing, dry powder that does not require a solvent to keep its parts in a liquid suspension form. This makes it a more environmentally friendly option, as it does not release harmful VOCs into the air.
The application of powder coating is typically done electrostatically, which means that the powder is charged with electricity and then sprayed onto the surface to be coated. The charged powder particles then stick to the surface, creating an even and consistent coating. After application, the coating is cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a hard, durable finish.
One of the main benefits of powder coating is its ability to create a tough finish that is more resistant to scratches, chipping, and fading than traditional paint. It is also available in a wide range of colors and finishes, making it a popular choice for a variety of applications. Some common uses of powder coating include coating household appliances, aluminium extrusions, architectural aluminium, and automobile parts.
Overall, powder coating is a durable, environmentally friendly, and versatile option for coating a wide range of surfaces. If you are looking for a long-lasting and attractive finish for your next project, powder coating may be the perfect choice for you.
Advantages of powder coating instead of other coatings
- Powder coatings contain no solvents and releases negligible amounts of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) into the atmosphere, if any. Thus, there is no longer a need for finishers to buy costly pollution control equipment, and companies can comply more easily and economically with the regulations of the U.K. Environmental Protection Agency.
- Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.
- Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
- The wide range of specialty effects are easily accomplished using powder coatings that would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes.
