WHY POWDER COAT
Less costly, cleaner and environmentally friendly than conventional liquid painting or electroplating, powder coating provides an aesthetically beautiful and consistent finish that is also durable, resists rusting, color fading, and abrasion.
- Durability Powder coating gives consumers, businesses, and industry one of the most economical, longest-lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with high- and low-gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available. And colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte finish, and rough textures designed for hiding surface imperfections.
- Non-Polluting Powder coating is also highly protective of our environment. While liquid finishes contain solvents that have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), powder coating contains no solvents and releases negligible amounts, if any, of VOCs into the atmosphere. Thus, there is no longer a need for finishers to buy costly pollution control equipment. In addition, most powder coating overspray that does not adhere to the part can be retrieved and reused, virtually eliminating the waste commonly found in liquid finishing processes. In fact, one of the major elements in expanding the market for powder coating has been the implementation over the past 30 years of stringent air pollution control legislation.
- Economical Elimination of VOCs and reduction of wastes saves money and helps companies comply more easily and economically with the regulations of the EU Environmental Protection Agency.
