Powder Coating Metal

Powder coating companies have started building up and gaining traction in the industry because of what they are able to do. A powder coating can be used on most metallic surfaces and even on some plastic and medium density fiberboard substrates as a way to put on a layer of colour and a protective sheet. The whole process is done by electronically charging the powder particles and shooting them from a spray gun that has been charged at the opposite polarity of the powder particles.

The powder is shot directly at a metallic substrate, or at a plastic or medium density fiberboard substrate, that is grounded to the earth. What this whole process does is that the negatively charged particles of powder are shot from the positively charged gun, so that they are repelled and a good even spray is sent out, towards a grounded object that will attract the negatively charged particles. Then the object along with the coat is heated and the powder makes a bond with the metal substrate.

You will find that most products that you come across today are covered through this method because of the high quality finish that it provides both in terms of decorative appeal and also for a protective purpose. They also have the added benefits of being extremely cost effective compared to other methods of painting objects and also being very environmentally friendly. The greatest thing about this, however, has to be how durable the powder coating is. Unlike things that are covered with liquid paint, the powder coating is not easy to simply scratch off or chip off. It is able to withstand bad weather, extreme moisture, and impacts.
