Recognising this, we are rolling out our latest offering: the Powder Coatings Course. This is part of our renowned Train the painter programme, designed to raise industry standards across the globe.
The Advantages of Powder Coatings
The powder coatings sector has seen tremendous growth and innovation in recent years. Powder coatings are used globally in numerous industries and the advantages include:
Environmental Friendliness: Unlike traditional liquid coatings, powder coatings emit zero or near-zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This makes them environmentally friendly, contributing to reduced pollution and safer work environments.
Cost-Efficiency: Over-spray from powder coatings can be retrieved, screened/cleaned and reused, resulting in nearly 100% usage of the product. This cuts down on waste, making the process more cost-effective.
Durability: Powder coatings are known for their excellent resistance to corrosion, chipping, abrasions, and weathering. Their hard finish is tougher than conventional paints, ensuring long-lasting protection and aesthetic appeal.
Thicker Coatings: Unlike liquid coatings, it’s easy to apply thicker coats using powder without the risk of runs or sags. A consistent, even coating can be achieved.
Uniform Finish: The electrostatic application process ensures that surfaces have a smooth and consistent finish without the appearance of brush strokes.
Wide Range of Finishes: From high-gloss to matte, and textures from smooth to rough, powder coatings offer a broad spectrum of finishing options, catering to various aesthetic and functional requirements.
Quick Turnaround: Due to the nature of the application and curing process, products coated with powder coatings are ready for use or shipment more quickly than their liquid-coated counterparts.
The application of powder coatings can be an automated or manual electrostatic process. Articles can also be dipped in fluidised beds.
Incorporating these advantages into your operations can offer businesses a competitive edge, not just in terms of product quality and longevity but also in eco-responsibility and cost savings. The move towards more sustainable and efficient solutions like powder coatings is not merely a trend but a forward-thinking approach to modern manufacturing and finishing processes.
