Powder Coating Vs. Liquid Paint
Although liquid paint is often used to protect the life of metals, it is not as effective as powder coating which boasts the following benefits:
Completed through a dry finishing process, powder coating offers a durable, long-lasting, colourful and versatile finish for metal objects. It produces a sleek look and provides a much thicker, stronger coating than liquid paints.
Powder coating is long-lasting and does not require solvents for cleaning or mixing. It is a pollution-free covering unlike conventional liquid coating films which may create scratches after being applied to a surface.
Powder Coating produces less hazardous waste while liquid paints produce pollution (air and water).
Liquid coating contains more toxic compounds called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are harmful to the environment. This toxin is eliminated in powder coating. In addition, any powder coating overspray can easily be recycled.
Powder coating is generally inexpensive and offers incredible performance benefits.
In many cases, just a single coating of powder achieves the same chemical, mechanical and weathering performance as competing coatings. Not only does this mean less product is used, but also less energy in both application and curing. In addition, powder overspray can be reclaimed and reused or recycled.
