What is Power Coating?

Power coating is a new and improved metal painting and finishing process that replaces wet painting when a more durable paint is required. For example, car rims go through a lot of wear and tear and need a stronger coating than you would need to paint the walls of your home which go through no wear and tear. Power coating is applied as a dry powder. The difference between liquid painting and powder coating is that powder coating does not require solvents to keep the filler parts and binder parts in a liquid form. The coating is spray on electrostatically and cured with heat to allow a single skin covering. The powder utilized in this process is a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is often used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, which is perfect for the automotive custom car shop.

Powder Coating Benefits & Advantages

A more modern way to give a decorative and a protective finish to almost all types of metal being used by industries and consumers alike is called 'Powder Coating', which is an advanced method of applying a finish to a product. The powder used goes through a process of finely grounded up particles consisting of a mixture of pigment and resin, then it is electronically sprayed on the surface that is to be coated. After the powdered particles are charged they will adhere to an electronically grounded surface up until the powder has been heated and then fused making it turn into a smooth coating while being cured in an oven. The end result turns out to be a durable, high quality, uniformed attractive finish.  Powder coating is a finishing technology, that is also the fastest growing finishing product in North America and now represents more than 10% of all finishing applications in industries today. There are many advantages and benefits of powder coating, including.

More durable!

Powder coating is the most economical, being the longest lasting, and it gives the best quality finishes, that is also color durable for consumers, businesses, and even industries. It gives the best finish available on the market today. It makes surfaces more resistant to scratching, wearing, fading, and chipping, than any other finish out there. The selections to choose from is virtually unlimited and has options of flat, gloss, satin, metallic,high gloss, clear, candies, fluorescent, iridescent, hammer tone, glitter, and wrinkle finishes available, and their colors continue to stay brighter and more vibrant much longer. The selections in texture are available anywhere from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled and/or matte finishes, with designs in rough textures as well, which are good for hiding those surfaces that have imperfections.

Powder coating helps to protect the environment:

Liquid finishes have solvents in them, which have pollutants in them, these are volatile organic compounds (VOC's), however, powder coating finishes does not have any solvents, and the amounts of volatile organic compounds released in our atmosphere, if at all, are negligible amounts, which takes away the need of finishers to have to continue purchasing, reducing the cost spent to maintain pollution control equipment.

Powder coating saves money!

If volatile organic compounds were eliminated and there was a reduced amount of waste it would save money, not to mention help out companies to economically and easily comply to the regulations given by the United States Department of Environmental Protection Agencies. Furthermore, it is because of the legislation's control over the implementation (for the past 30 years) on stringent air pollution that has been a major element in the broadening of powder coating finishes.

The Process Of Power Coating

Powder coating car parts, truck parts, or motorcycle parts requires pretreatment of the metal before it can be powder coated. The pretreatment is a mixture of chemical cleaning and abrasive mechanical cleaning in order to prepare the surface for proper powder coating. Powder coating applications come out the best when existing coatings or rust is removed before coating.

What Materials Can Be Powder Coated?

Powder coating works best when applied to assemblies, weldments, and metal parts.

What Materials Can't Be Powder Coated?

Non-metallics, fabric, glass, ceramic, wood, rubber, and plastic cannot be powder coated. Also, soldered parts cannot be powder coated because of the high temperature curing process needed to finish the coat.

Before Coating Process

Before the coating takes place, the auto parts get hung on racks. This allows for the part to be completely coated uniformly without disturbances. The application happens in a clean booth to keep out dust or other powder colors. The car parts are grounded electrically and then the dry powder is sprayed on  with a system that electrically charges powder particles. Once the powder is charged it is naturally attracts to the grounded part and attaches itself.

After Coating Process

After the automotive parts are  coated with dry powder, the parts are then moved to a curing oven. As the part is heated, the powder turns into a gel and then flows evenly all around the part to create a smooth finish. As the powder coating reaches its maximum curing temperature, cross linking (a chemical reaction) takes place. After curing the parts are then moved into cool ambient air and put into service. Please note, powder coating does not work for every situation. For example, if you are trying to match paint colors, powder coating will not work.
