The advanced method of applying enamel powder coating is used for both protective and decorative finishes to any metal which is used by consumers and industry.
The process uses a powder which consists of resin and fine pigment particles, electrostatically sprayed on the metal surface. This allows the powder particles to become charged and adhere to the metal surface while being electrically grounded, until the powder has heated up and smoothly fused with the metal in a curing oven. This provides a durable, uniform, attractive and high-quality finish.
Advantages & Benefits Of Enamel Powder Coating
In North America, the enamel powder coating process is a fast growing technology for adding finishes to products. It accounts for more than 10% of all industrial based finishing applications.
Advantage – Enamel Powder Coating Is Durable
Enamel powder coating provides businesses, consumers, and industries a long-lasting, economical, and durable finish with a range of color options available for nearly any type of metal.
Also, a powder coated surface will be more resistant against scratches, chipping, wear, and fading compared to other type of finishes. You can choose from an almost unlimited selection of colors, including, glossy, high-gloss, flat, fluorescent, candies, clear, hammer toned, iridescent, glitter and wrinkle.
The colors will remain vibrant and bright much longer than other finishes too. The selection of textures range between a smooth surface to matte or wrinkled finishes.
Advantage – Protecting the Environment
Not only does enamel powder coating provide great finish, it is better on the environment. Liquid painting finishes that consists of solvents are known to be pollutants of volatile organic compounds. VOC’s wreak havoc on the air we breath – nobody wants that!
What’s awesome about enamel powder coating is that it does not contain any solvents! It only releases very negligible amounts of VOC’s, if any within the atmosphere. This means that finishers no longer have a need of purchasing and maintaining expensive equipment for pollution control.
Advantage – Powder Coat to Save Money
Eliminating VOC’s and reducing waste saves money in the long term. Companies remain in compliance with U.S. Department of Environmental Protection Agency regulations.
The customer reaps huge benefits in money costs because the finish lasts so much longer vs. other metal finish methods. Enamel powder coating has many advantages.
