Powder painting is a material coating process, where dry, free-flowing powders are applied to a target electrostatically and then cured with heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. It is usually used to create a pre-determined hard finish, which maintains its color hue, and is tougher than conventional paint. After application of the powder coating, the parts enter a curing oven where with the addition of heat, a very durable weather resistant finish is achieved. Powder coatings can be applied to metal and non-metallic substrates such as plastics and fiberboard.
Some of the key benefits from a successful industrial filtration system of powder paint processing include:
- Worker health and safety
- Facility and asset safety
- Improved product quality and consistency
- Reduced housekeeping and equipment maintenance
- Regulatory compliance
