Powder coating is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly coating processes used in practice. In this process, an electrically conductive material is coated with powder paint.
Modern and environmentally friendly
The main advantage over wet paints is the lack of solvents: Powder coatings do not produce any solvent emissions. No wastewater is produced during their processing. Due to a very high application efficiency, the amount of waste is also very low.
Since our powder suppliers completely avoid the use of heavy metals, the industrial coatings we use comply with the requirements of the RoHS Directive.
Gloss - Colour stability
Can be subjected to heavy mechanical stresses
High surface hardness
High surface hardness Elastic and bendable
Good mechanical values
The parts to be coated are pre-treated (e.g. degreased and chromated/phosphated) and coated with powder in any colour. The adhesion of the powder to the workpiece results from electrostatic charging. The cross-linking of the powder particles takes place in a drying oven at approx. 200 °C.
The coated components show very good weather resistance and very high gloss and colour stability. Powder coatings adhere well to all common metallic substrates. Powder coatings have good corrosion protection properties and a high surface hardness – with very good mechanical values. The abrasion resistance is excellent. After complete curing or cross-linking, the paint film is physiologically harmless.
Powder coatings can be subjected to very high mechanical stresses. They are impact and scratch resistant, very elastic and bendable.
