Powder coating is a particular type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder using electrostatic painting.

It is an entirely ecological ink as it does not use solvent, of easy application and with excellent adhesion results.

But what is electrostatic painting?

Electrostatic Painting is the process that uses the electric principle of attraction and repulsion of electric charges for the fixing of the ink.

Electrostatic painting is the most efficient and resistant form of painting that is known. It has advantages like the high level and final finish of the painting; rapid color change, and it does not harm the environment so much. Also, the material can be reused so it is much more sustainable.

Through electrostatic painting, it is possible in most cases to guarantee the flexibility of the piece without harming the paint. This is because when a material is painted with chemical powder, the electric charge received is opposite to the material, and this causes the powder to stick on it. After the procedure, the piece is taken to a greenhouse, which after being heated, hardens the paint, forming a super high resistant film.

What are the advantages of powder paints?

  • Ecologically correct – no solvent requirement

  • Cost-benefit

  • The finishes are sturdy and flexible, making it harder to chip or crack

  • Usually gives a 100% solid coating

  • It hardly produces waste

  • Vast range of colors and finishes

  • Oxidation Free

  • Can be applied over a wide range of thicknesses

  • Can produce thick coatings without dripping or losing firmness

  • Special effects are easily performed

  • Fast response time

  • Protection against external UV fading

  • Exceptional color retention

  • Excellent electrical insulation capacity

  • Resistant to most chemicals and solvents

Powder Coating technology is one of the most advanced paint technique nowadays. It creates a high-quality finish while requiring a minimal amount of money and is less time-consuming.
