Powder coating can significantly increase longevity of agriculture equipment due to its durability and resistance to corrosion, wear and tear, and the elements. As a result, a farmer can get the most out of their equipment.
How does powder coating help agriculture equipment?
Powder coating in agriculture offers economic, environmental and production benefits. It is a specialised method designed to withstand the toughest operating conditions, such as those faced by farming equipment. Many machines operate non-stop under extreme weather conditions and harsh environments. Therefore, powder coating equipment helps prevent corrosion and wear and tear.
What agriculture equipment can you powder coat?
Powder coating can be applied to a vast number of applications within agriculture, including tractors, combine harvesters, corn heads, storage silos and more. Furthermore, it can also be used on smaller mechanical components and parts that require a protective barrier for a prolonged lifespan.
What are the benefits of powder coating?
A primary benefit of powder coating is the increased durability of the metal and the aesthetic finish. A powder coated finish can withstand extreme weather conditions and physical wear and tear that agricultural machinery endures daily. Not only that, it is highly resistant to rust and corrosion, which ultimately increases longevity.
What’s more, the obvious benefit of increased lifespan is reduced costs on new equipment and repairs. Additionally, it assists with efficient and consistent production. On top of that, powder coating is generally a one-coat process, which significantly reduces labour costs.
Lastly, but by no means least, powder coating is environmentally friendly. This is especially important in food production and in the continued effort towards a greener future. Unlike other methods, powder coating does not contain volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are known to be dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. What’s more, environmentally friendly powder coating overspray can be recycled and produces less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings.
R&M Industries provides a range of specific powder coating systems that meet the corrosion resistance expectations of the agriculture sector. We deliver an aesthetic finish that is highly resistant to extreme conditions for optimum production and performance.
