Powder coating is another way of applying the color to the surface. The dry powder is sprayed onto the substrate and then baked in the oven until the melting point is reached. The powder coats the surface and provides a beautiful coat for the uniform coating, making the material more resistant to scratching, breaking, UV, and corrosion than ordinary liquid painting.
The equipment used in an electrostatic coating in which the powder is added to the target area utilizing charging guns and a fluidized bed where the air cavity chamber at the base is packed with powder. It is utilized to bind the pre-heated coating to the surface of the material to be powder coated.
Surface preparation is a crucial step towards a good powder coating. Free the surface from residues of oil, lubricants, oxide stains, and other blemishes on the intended substrate. Several cleaning methods may be used for stains on the substrate depending on the material, the amount of stain, and the size of the area to be cleaned. Test the products to make sure they are not hazardous to your wellbeing.
For wood, plastic, and glass objects, sandblasting may be done while silicon carbide grit is used on non-metallic materials. For steel structures such as beams, a cast steel shot is used to render the surface for the powder coating.
The material utilized for the coating is composed of colored ground particles. Particles are electrostatically charged and sprayed to the surface. Particles are electrically grounded to be firmly bonded to the surface before the process is finished.
Curing is a necessary process wherein after the powder is applied on the substrate, and it is put in an infrared curing oven or a convection curing oven. It is subjected to around 200 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes. In this method, the powder coating is melted and permitted to bond permanently to the surface.
Using the proper tools, you can produce a durable finish that sticks more rigorously to the surface than the conventional painting process. Its success is due to the reality that it is resistant to chemicals, does not need any solvents, and is environmentally friendly.
