What Is Powder Coating? 

Powder coating is a finishing process for multiple materials. Dry, free-flowing, thermoplastic or thermoset powder material is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto electrically grounded parts. After that it’s hardened into an even coating. The powder particles adhere to the part and are held there until melted and fused into a uniform coating in a curing oven.

What Types Of Metals Can Be Powder Coated?

The metals most commonly powder coated are aluminium and steel. This includes stainless, galvanized & anodized. But, bronze, copper, brass and titanium can also all be powder coated. If the metal can hold an electromagnetic charge and withstand the heat from the curing process, it can be powder coated.

How Durable Is Powder Coating?

In most cases powder coating can maintain its finish up to 15-20 years. However, this does depend on the pre-treatment and the type of powder in use in the process. Its resistance to weather, corrosion, and chemicals makes powder coating a more durable finish than paint or other liquid coatings.

What Industries Use Powder Coating?

There are multiple industries that use powder coating. These can include Automotive, Aerospace, Rail, Defence, Domestic, Agricultural & Architectural plus many more.

What Are The Benefits Of Powder Coating For The Rail Industry?

Powder coating gives the rail industry one of the most durable coatings available. Therefore, surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching & fading which is ideal for public transport.

How Long Will Powder Coating Last?

Powder coating can last for up to 15-20 years in most circumstances. But, it depends on the pre-treatment and type of powder in use. In addition, powder coating is more durable than paint or other liquid coatings due to its resilience to weather, corrosion, and chemicals.

Is Powder Coating Better Than Paint?

Powder coating is a better alternative to wet paint if you are after a more resistant coating to chipping, scratching, and other wear. This is because of the thermal bonding it undergoes during curing. Additionally, it can be applied in much thicker layers. Along with powder coating being very durable, powder coating also provides superior colour retention for indoor & outdoor settings.
