Powder coatings are solvent-free paints, primarily applied to metal and other conductive surfaces. Before application, it is a solid form which is applied to the substrate by either electrostatic spray or fluid bed. After spraying it is then baked at an elevated temperature (between 110-200°C, 225-400°F). At the prescribed temperature, the powder melts, flows then reacts to form a solid coating.
Powder coatings have developed and expanded within the coatings industry since their first development in the 1960's into the innovative force we know today.
As environmental concerns have grown globally, resulting legislation has encouraged companies to find greener coatings alternatives. AkzoNobel’s powder coatings contain no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and no toxic heavy metals such as lead or chromium (VI). The ease of application, quality of finish, cost efficiency and constant innovation of powder technologies has developed at a rapid pace.
