- Eliminates environmental issues for all
- Custom colors available: Federal Standard 595, RAL European Standards, and others
- Textured finished available
- Indoor, Outdoor, harsh environment powders are available
- Excellent silkscreen results over powder
- Touch up with powder or paint
Powder coating gives consumers, businesses, and industry one of the most economical,
longest-lasting, and most color-durable quality finished available.
Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing
than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with high and low gloss, metallic,
and clear finishes available. And colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections
range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte finish, and rough textures designed for
hiding surface imperfections.
Protects the Environment
Powder coating is also highly protective of our environment. While liquid finishes contain
solvents which have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), powder coating
contains no solvents and releases negligible amounts, if any, of VOCs into the atmosphere.
Thus, there is no longer a need for finishers to buy costly pollution control equipment. In
addition, most powder coating overspray that does not adhere to the part can be retrieved and
reused, virtually eliminating the waste commonly found in liquid finishing processes.
Elimination of VOCs and reduction of wastes saves money and helps companies comply more
easily and economically with the regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
In fact, one of the major elements in expanding the market for powder coating has been the
implementation over the past 30 years of stringent air pollution control legislation.
