Powder coating is similar to paint but has some big differences to its application as well as the finished product. Powder coating is applied as a free-flowing dry powder instead of a liquid and it utilises an innovative electrostatic spray gun process. This electrostatic process works in a very similar way to magnetism with positive being attracted to negative etc. The powder becomes electrostatically charged up by the spray gun and is released as a fine spray of electrostatically charged particles. These particles are attracted to the metal item which has an electrode attached. This works by pulling the positively electro-charged particles to the whole of the negatively charged metal item and ensures all of the area is covered with the powder coat. This innovative method works very efficiently and can be seen visibly pulling the electro-charged powder coating from the air surrounding. The powder spray will even cover the sides of the item when being sprayed from the front. This gives many benefits and helps with a deatiled, even cover and a perfect finish. Another big difference between a conventional liquid paint and 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 coating is typically applied dry utilising its electrostatic method and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The “skin” once set leaves a very hard wearing, extremely durable coating that will last for many years. As with any paint or powder coated item its durability is down to conditions such as being exposed to bad weather, water, salt, chemicals, U.V light and after care. If its durability were to be compared to paint in general, it will always last a lot longer. In general items that have been coated for external use with the correct powder coating will have 20 years+ durability and usually last longer for indoor applications. Please look at the video below of the metal being coated after it has been heated to the correct temperature in the oven.
