Why is Powder Coating Better?
More Durable ::
Powder coating gives consumers,
businesses, and industry one of the most economical, longest-lasting,
and most color-durable quality finishes available. Powder coated
surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and
wearing than other finishes. Powder colors stay bright and vibrant
longer. Textures range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte
finish, and rough textures designed for hiding surface imperfections.
Protects the Environment ::
is also 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.
Saves Money ::
Elimination of VOCs and reduction of wastes
saves money and helps us 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. Also, powder is much
less expensive to produce than liquid coating; therefore savings
get passed along to the consumer.
