There are many advantages to powder coating. Powder coatings are tough monolithic armor and are extremely resistant to abrasion, heat, liquid penetration, de-icers, corrosion, UV rays and chemical attack. Powder coatings are also economical and environmentally friendly because they contain no solvents and emit virtually no hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) or volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Another advantage to powder coatings is that they also reduce the amount of waste and presents fewer hazards than fluidized applied shop coatings. Powder coatings also provide a uniform long-lasting finish with no runs, or other surface defects. They can be used for various metal substrates and can be formulated for color, gloss, texture and high temperature.
