As the name implies, the process of powder coating in Daytona Beach treats metal by applying a dry powder coating, freely. With usage in more than 15% of the industrial finishing market, this is a product finish that will withstand wear and tear in adverse conditions. High-quality, durable, and environmentally compliant, powder coating has a lot going for it as a metal coating.
Powder Coating in Daytona Beach
Aside from being a more interesting looking process, the big difference between powder and a more conventional liquid coating is the binding process. Powder coating doesn’t require solvents to maintain binder and filler in a liquid suspension form.
First, it’s used for its protective properties, well before being decorative. Powder coating offers an almost endless range of colors and high-end textures but is also very protective. Developments in technology mean that powder coating standards have improved by leaps and bounds over the years, and their performance properties are at a higher level now than they have ever been.
Powder coatings are usually based on polymer resin systems, using pigments, leveling agents, and flow modifiers for durability and better finishes. Using a melt mixer, ingredients combine before cooling. Coaters grind these up into a powder not dissimilar to baking flour. Next comes application, in a process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD). In simple terms, this process uses a spray gun to apply an electrostatic charge to the powder particles. This, in turn, attracts these particles to the grounded metal component, forcing a bond.
After application, metal parts go into a curing oven, heating them to prompt a chemical reaction. As a result, they produce long molecular chains for high cross-link density. As a result, these chains are extremely resistant to break down, making this an excellent coating choice.
