CNC Machine Shop 2017: Increasing Awareness and Understanding About Powder Coatings When it comes to sheet metal fabrication, there is an ongoing competition about selecting the best finishing. It is important to know what sheet metal finishing technique is best used in the manufacturing of your product. This can be achieved by understanding the basic processes, principles, benefits, and drawbacks of both wet paint/plating and powder coating, designing your product to stand out from the rest. Powder coating refers to the finishing process wherein a coating is electrostatically applied to a surface as a dry powder before using heat in finalizing the coating. Polyurethane, polyester, polyester-epoxy, acrylics, or straight epoxy are the usual materials used to make powder coatings. Powder coatings are combined with leveling agents, curative, flow modifiers, pigments and other forms of additives. These all undergo mixing, cooling and grinding into a uniform powder. Powder coating is tougher, thicker and has a harder finish than conventional paints. Powder coatings are used in different products such as automobile parts and household appliances. There are two processes involved in accomplishing powder coating namely the thermoplastics and thermosets. When it comes to thermoplastics, they do not contain any additional chemicals that can react to the powder while heating, whereas thermosetting uses additional chemicals. With the use of powder coating, there are tons of benefits provided for your metal products, being longer lasting and more durable. Powder coating involves a single coat, so it is easy and fast to do your finishing process. Powder coatings can be sprayed using expert manipulation that may include different textures and multiple custom finishing colors. Powder coatings are safe for the environment because it only produce few organic compounds that are volatile. Powder coatings are sprayed without application traces or drips giving the most even finish surfaces (vertical and horizontal surfaces). So when choosing a superior quality finish for your toughest and roughest machinery and household items, choose powder coating. As compared to liquid paints, powder coatings provide a more durable finish while still possessing an attractive finish. Products that are finished with powder coatings are more resistant to chemicals, moisture, impact, extreme weather conditions, ultraviolet rays and diminished coating. Powder coated products are more resistant to fading, corrosion, chipping, abrasions, and scratches. The number of companies is increasing because of its durable and high-quality finish, improving efficiencies, maximizing production, and simplifying environmental compliance.
