Powder Coating provides a very durable baked-on finish that remains smooth, easy to clean, and it contains none of the solvents or toxic byproducts of traditional liquid paints. The final product is highly resistant to most chemicals, brake fluid, acids, and salt, yet it demonstrates surface properties that can be as much as ten times more durable than ordinary paints, and can withstand temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees F.
The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality, and attractive finish.
