    When it comes to powder coating for metal panels and sheets, there are several important technical and engineering aspects to consider :

     

    1. Powder Coating Basics:

      • Powder coating is a dry finishing process where a fine powder is applied electrostatically to a metal surface. The coated part is then cured in an oven, resulting in a durable and attractive finish.
      • It offers advantages such as excellent corrosion resistance, colour variety, and environmental friendliness.
    2. Surface Preparation:

      • Proper surface preparation is crucial for successful powder coating.
      • Cleaning: Remove dirt, grease, and contaminants from the metal surface using solvents or alkaline cleaners.
      • Degreasing: Ensure the surface is free of oils and grease.
      • Etching: For aluminum, use an etching solution to improve adhesion.
    3. Application Process:

      • Electrostatic Application: The powder is sprayed onto the metal surface using an electrostatic gun. The charged particles adhere to the grounded metal.
      • Uniform Coating: Achieve an even coating thickness by adjusting the gun settings and ensuring consistent coverage.
    4. Curing:

      • After application, the coated metal is heated in an oven to cure the powder.
      • Temperature: Typically, curing temperatures range from 300°F to 450°F (149°C to 232°C).
      • Time: The curing time depends on the specific powder coating material.
    5. Powder Coating Materials:

      • Different types of powder coatings are available:
        • Epoxy: Good adhesion and chemical resistance.
        • Polyester: Offers UV resistance and colour retention.
        • Polyurethane: Provides excellent durability and weather resistance.
        • Hybrid: Combines properties of epoxy and polyester.
    6. Quality Standards and Testing:

      • ASTM Standards: ASTM B117 (Salt Spray Test), ASTM D7091 (Dry Film Thickness Measurement), and ASTM D1654 (Corrosion Evaluation) are relevant.
      • AAMA Specifications: AAMA 2603, 2604, and 2605 define performance requirements for architectural coatings.
    7. Environmental Considerations:

      • Powder coating is environmentally friendly due to minimal volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and no hazardous air pollutants.
      • Proper disposal of overspray and waste powder is essential.

     

     

    Key Points: 

    • Industrial powder coating is a surface treatment used to protect metals and other materials against potentially harmful environmental factors.
    • This coating is applied electrostatically as a free-flowing powder and cured under heat or UV light.
    • It can provide a durable and long-lasting finish that resists marring, weathering, corrosion, and abrasion.
    • We have over 23 years of experience in the industry and we offer competitive pricing across North America.
    • We can produce thousands of linear feet per shift and we have solutions for faster results and efficient processes.
    • Powder coating has many advantages over conventional liquid paint, such as:

    1 - Higher transfer efficiency and lower material usage
    2 - Better edge coverage and protection for sharp edges
    3 - No solvents or volatile organic compounds. 
    4 - More colour options, gloss levels, and special effects
    5 - Improved resistance to fading, chipping, scratching, and corrosion.

     

    We can powder coat various types of products, such as:

    1 - Metal fencing and railings.
    2 - Industrial fabrications.
    3 - Retail display units.
    4 - Retail fixtures.
