WHAT IS POWDER COATING?


Powder coating is by far the youngest of the surface finishing techniques in common use today. It was first used in Australia about 1967. It is a superior finish that’s found on hundreds of products you come in contact with each day. 

Powder coating is the technique of applying dry paint to a part. The final cured coating is the same as a 2-pack wet paint. In normal wet painting such as house paints, the solids are in suspension in a liquid carrier, which must evaporate before the solid paint coating is produced.

How Does It Work? 

Powder coating is a dry finishing process. Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the products to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrically grounded, so that the charged particles adhere to them until melted and fused into a solid coating in a curing oven.

Why Powder Coat?

Powder coating produces a high specification coating which is relatively hard, abrasion resistant (depending on the specification) and tough. Thin powder coatings can be bent but this is not recommended for exterior applications.

The choice of colors and finishes is almost limitless, if you have the time and money to have the powder produced by the powder manufacturer.

Powder coatings can be applied over a wide range of thickness. The Australian Standard AS4506:1998 – Metal finishing – Thermoset powder coatings recommends 25 micron minimum for mild interior applications and up to 60 micron minimum for exterior applications.

Care must be exercised when quoting minimum thickness because some powder will not give “coverage” below 60 or even 80 micron. “Coverage” is the ability to cover the color of the metal with the powder. Some of the white colors require about 75 micron to give full “coverage”. One of the orange colors must be applied at 80 micron. Color matching is quite acceptable batch to batch.
