This dry finishing process is used to coat a range of metalwork by either spray or fluidised bed. The powder adheres to the workpiece electrostatically and is cured in an oven to produce a glossy protective finish.
Powder coating is primarily used to protect metalwork from corrosion and damage: the polymer forms a durable skin on the surface of the metal. Because it is a polymer there are many associated benefits such as a range of vivid colours and protective qualities that are engineered to suit the application. Furthermore, it is a dry process that has low environmental impacts.
