Powder coating is a way of applying paint that does not require the use of solvents. For the time being, this is the industry's newest coating process. This form of coating is commonly used to create a durable finish on metals, as well as the ability to be applied to several layers of thickness. This finishing can be used in materials such as aluminum, medium density fiberboards, fused epoxy, and acrylics, which are commonly used in vehicle finishing.
Polymer granules are mixed with pigments and powder ingredients to produce the powdered finishing. The mixture is heated in an extruder. It is then cooled and rolled flat before being broken into pieces. The chips are then milled to be produced as powder. As you can mix any type of pigment into the mixture, the colors you can produce are limitless.
To apply powder coating on an object, you could heat either thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer material powder, and the finishing would make it stick to the usually metallic surface. This may sound like a very tedious process.
But what you can do is use an electron gun to spray the powder. The gun gives an electronic charge to the powder causing it to stick to the surface. The object is usually heated, causing the powder to melt and attach to the surface producing the hard coating. This is similar to the process of applying to dry paints.
The final cured coating is similar to the effects of applying a two-pack wet paint. By applying to the object a powder coating, the product ends up relatively hard and abrasion-resistant. Problems might occur when applying the powder coating; This is mainly due to a lack of preparation. Each product needs different preparation depending on the material of the object.
