Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The powder used in the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, which is electrostatically sprayed onto the surface and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until the powder is heated and fused into a smooth coating in the curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality and attractive finish. Powder coating is one of the fastest growing industrial finishing technology today.
Hammer tone texture powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish. This type of powder coating provide excellent toughness, durability, thickness and decorative effect. This textured surface is more resistant to abrasion, chipping, scratching, fading, chemical corrosion and wearing than other finishes. It will seal the trailer well from the corrosive action of harsh environment conditions. It is the longest lasting and most color-durable quality finish. Colors stay bright and vibrant longer. It is also designed for hiding surface imperfections. Now you can have excellent performing finish that not only does the job but also looks great.
Powder coating is environmentally friendly, in a way that would be impossible to achieve with alternative coating processes. Powder coatings do not emit (many) volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and therefore have a much reduced impact on the environment. ‘Overspray’ from powder coating can be recycled and so almost all of the coating materials can be used.
