The Powder Coating Process
Powder coating is a dry finishing process using finely ground particles of pigment and resin. The particles are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto electrically grounded metal parts. The charged powder particles adhere to the parts and are held there until melted and fused into a smooth surface coating in a curing oven.
Before coating, the parts are cleaned and pretreated through an 8-Stage Pretreatment Process in-line with the coating and curing operations. The powder may be a thermoplastic or thermoset polymer that creates a hard finish paint, which is tougher than conventional paint. The durability and longevity of powder coating makes it an ideal finish for a wide variety of applications and environments, perfectly balancing appearance and function.
