Our Powder Coatings
Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on thousands of products you come in contact with each day. This popular dry finishing process is used as a protective and decorative finish. The availability of power coatings and technological advancement allows them to come in an almost limitless range of colors and textures. Powder coatings are easy to use, environmentally friendly, cost effective, and tough!
Powder coatings protect the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the daily household items you depend on. It provides a more durable finish than liquid paints, while still providing an attractive finish.
Powder coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. Reduce the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues with a protective powder coating.
Powder coatings are based on polymer resin systems, combined with curatives, pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, and other additives. These ingredients are melt mixed, cooled, and ground into a uniform powder similar to baking flour. A process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) is typically used to achieve the application of the powder coating to a metal substrate. This application method uses a spray gun, which applies an electrostatic charge to the powder particles, which are then attracted to the grounded part. After application of the powder coating, the parts enter a curing oven where, with the addition of heat, the coating chemically reacts to produce long molecular chains, resulting in high cross-link density. These molecular chains are very resistant to breakdown. This type of application is the most common method of applying powders. Powder coatings can also be applied to non-metallic substrates such as plastics and medium density fiberboard (MDF).
Sometimes a powder coating is applied during a fluidized bed application. Preheated parts are dipped in a hopper of fluidizing powder and the coating melts, and flows out on the part. Post cure may be needed depending on the mass and temperature of the part and the type of powder used.
Safety & Quality Assurance
Comprehensive inspection services and quality control programs ensure the highest possible standard of compliance with NACE, SSPC and ANSI industrial application standards for coating and blasting services.
