Powder coating usually results in a more durable finish than traditional liquid finishes. It is generally easier to attain a consistant and integrated finish as no mixing is required. The powders are ready-to-use from the supplier. This saves time and money as no solvents or catalysts required. This also reduces the fire risks commonly associated with these chemicals.
  • They are environmentally friendlier than liquid paints. There is no solvent wasteage or disposal problems. There is less air pollution as a result of not having to discharge excess material into the atmosphere, and oversprayed powders are easily recovered.
  • There is reduced health hazards to operators of powder coat lines. Powders do not contain solvents and there have been considerable improvements in the reduction of heavy metals and other possibly toxic content in the powders.
  • There is less processing time generally, due to the fact that no flash off period is required as in wet stoving paints. Powder coated materials can go straight to the oven, saving space and time. Also, economy in energy requirements is increased because no energy is required to evaporate solvents or evacuate them from the oven.
  • Solvent-based paint systems and liquid polymer deposited systems must be meticulously adjusted to the many variables inherent in the materials being finished. The polymeric-type application and curing conditions all contribute to the possibilty of achieving an incorrect solvent balance, resulting in inferior film properties. Adhesion and corrosion resistance properties are generally superior in powder coated materials as these conditions and variables do not apply to the powder coating processes.
  • Damaged or incorrectly coated areas can be easily rectified prior to baking by blowing off the powder and recoating.
  • Powder recovery can result in up to 95% material utilization, resulting in less material costs. This, in conjunction with decreased energy costs, results in vastly decreased environmental concerns.
  • Uniformity of film thickness is easily controlled with powders, and a higher film thickness can be obtained in one application than with conventional liquid based systems.
  • There are lower packaging costs involved in the shipment and transfer of powder coated materials as a much higher order of physical and chemical resistance is obtained with thermosetting powders.
