Powder coating forms a durable, wear resistant and corrosion resistant layer on the surface of parts. Powder coating can be used to apply colors to parts and is compatible with any metal.
The application of powder coating, which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder is a surface finishing technique used to create a hard finish tougher than normal paint. Powder coating is mainly used to coat metal parts, such as those used in household appliances.
Powder Coating Specifications
The added thickness of the coated layer makes it necessary to plug and mask holes or other tolerance-tight surfaces that will play a functional role.
Pricing of powder coats can be inconsistent between colors, finishes and part geometry.
Most polymers used for powder coating have poor electrical conductivity.
