Powder-based Coating

Using powder-based coating is a popular method of applying an eye-appealing and protective finish to products that are made out of metal. There are many products that benefit from this finishing method including cars and household appliances to lawn furniture and bicycles. Choosing to coat metal products with powder offers the following terrific benefits:

Strength and Durability

Powder coating is one of the best ways to add a durable finish to metal products. It can be used on virtually any type of metal, and it provides a surface that is highly resistant to such things as fading, chipping, corrosion, scratches and chemicals. Furthermore, powder-coated metal products have a much longer life span than those that have simply been finished with paint.

Environmentally Friendly

Powder coating metals can also help to protect our environment. Liquid finishes contain various solvents, which are made up of harmful pollutants known as volatile organic compounds. Powder-coated finishes, on the other hand, do not contain solvents or harmful pollutants. Thus, businesses that choose powder coating do not need to purchase expensive pollution-control equipment.

EPA Approval

Since powder coating does not contain any volatile organic compounds and does not produce harmful pollution, it is approved much quicker and easier by the EPA than liquid-based coatings. The EPA has set strict air pollution regulations over the years, and powder coating finishes meet all of these regulations.

Large Variety of Finishes

Another terrific benefit of using powder coating is that it comes in a large variety of finishes including clear, gloss, metallic and flat. There are also many different colors and textures customers can choose. Furthermore, powder-coated colors stay attractive and vibrant much longer than liquid-type finishes.

Using powder coating to finish metal products has become very popular today and for many terrific reasons. Not only does this type of coating make metal products much more durable, but it can make them extremely attractive as well. Additionally, since powder-based coating meets all air pollution regulations, it gains approval from the EPA far quicker and easier than liquid-type coatings.
