Why Does Aircraft Need Powder Coating? 

Aeroplanes are complex pieces of machinery made up of thousands of moving and static parts. The safety and performance of an aircraft relies on each small component working effectively. Therefore, protective coating needs to be properly coated on each part.

Aerospace coatings have a number of different purposes:

  • Aerospace coatings lubricate moving parts effectively. This is in order to prevent galling, wear, and other issues that can occur within high-friction machinery.
  • Aerospace powder coatings protect each part from other possible elements. For instance, oxidation and corrosion.
  • Aerospace coatings can also reduce the amount of drag and air pressure. With the right amount of coating the aircraft can run more efficiently.

As you can see, an aerospace coating is a pivotal part of aircraft design and maintenance.

The Benefits Of Powder Coating

Industrial powder coating systems are one of the best types of coatings on the market. Although the aerospace industry often uses other types of coatings too, powder coating is one of the most important. Unlike other coatings, powder coatings are applied as a dry electrostatically-charged powder. Components go into a curing oven, after it has been sprayed on the parts. This causes the particles in the paint to meld, creating a durable, effective, and long-lasting finish. Powder coating provides a thicker and longer-lasting finish. Consequently, creating a stronger seal on the surface it is applied to. Additionally, the process is much more environmentally friendly in comparison to other coatings. This is because it does not release any solvents into the atmosphere.

The coated components must travel long distances and through harsh environments. Therefore, Aerospace powder coatings are required to be long-lasting and durable. Environmental concerns and regulations are an additional aspect that the aerospace industry must consider. It is important that the coatings they choose for their aircraft have a minimal effect on the environment.
