What is Powder coat?
Powder coating is a type of dry coating, which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin.” Powder coating is a method of painting products that uses a powdered plastic resin which is melted onto the part. At State of the Art we coat both ferrous and nonferrous metals using “Electrostatic Spray” equipment. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder Coat is more durable than conventional painting and has a smooth and shiny finish it will not fade and chip like paint does and last much longer. Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC).
Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging. Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings. Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
A wide range of specialty effects is easily accomplished which would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes. Powder coat is a lot more durable and does not fade out in the weather like paint will.
