What Is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is an improved and new type of metal painting as well as finishing process that has replaced wet painting when a durable paint is needed. For instance, rims on cars go through a lot of wear and tear and often need a stronger coating than is needed to paint your home which doesn’t really go through a lot of damage.
Powder coating is applied as a dry powder. The difference between a powder coating and liquid paint is that powder coatings do not need solvents to keep the filler and binder parts in a liquid form. The coating is sprayed on electrostatically and then cured with heat to allow a single covering.
The powder used in this process is a thermoset or thermoplastic polymer. It is normally used to create a hard finish that is tougher than regular paint. Powder coatings are normally used for coating metals which is great for a custom car shop.

The Powder Coating Process
Powder coating truck, motorcycle, or car parts requires the item to be pretreated before it can be coated. The pretreatment is a mix of abrasive mechanical clean and chemical cleaning to be able to prepare the surface to be properly powder coated. Powder coating will come out best when the existing coating or rust have been removed.
What can be powder coated and what cannot be?
Powder coating will work best when applied to metal parts, weldments, and assemblies. Non-metallic things such as plastic, rubber, wood, ceramic, glass and fabric cannot be powder coated. Soldered parts cannot be coated because of the high temperatures that needed to cure to finish the coating.
Before the coating can happen, the parts are hung on a rack. This allows it to be completely coated without any issues. The application is done in a clean booth to keep out other powder colors or dust. The parts are then electrically grounded and then dry powder is sprayed on with a system that electrically charges the powder. Once the powder has been charged, it will naturally attract to the grounded part and then attaches itself to it.
Once the part is coated with the powder, the part is removed and then placed in a curing oven. Once the part is heated, the powder becomes a gel and then flows evenly around the part to give it a smooth finish. Once the powder reaches the maximum curing temperature, a chemical reaction called cross linking happens. After the curing, the parts are then placed into cool air and put into service.
You should know that powder coating doesn’t work in every situation. For instance, if you are trying to match a certain paint color, it won’t work.
