There are many environmental advantages of powder coating. Since there are no solvents or VOC’s there is no damage to the environment during application. The waste is also not hazardous and can be disposed in the landfill. However, the average transfer efficiency of powder coating is 60-70% and any over spray is a solid and can be reclaimed and re-used netting virtually no wasted product. Wet paint contains harmful chemicals that have been proven to deplete the ozone and produces hazardous waste that needs to be disposed of in an appropriate manner.
DURABILITY AND AFFORDABILITY
Powder coat gives consumers, businesses, and industries one of the most economical, longest lasting, affordable, and most color-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with flat, satin, gloss, high gloss, metallic, candies, clear, iridescent, fluorescent, wrinkle, hammer tone, and glitter finishes available. Colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to wrinkled or matte finishes, and rough textures. All within an affordable price range.
POWDER COATING ADVANTAGES
The main advantage of this process is that when the powder coated product comes out of the oven it is completely cured after cooling down and ready to be put to work. Standard liquid paints can take days to completely cure and depend on the atmospheric conditions. You can put a powder coated object to work minutes after it has cooled down and it will not ruin the finish.
