What is powder coating?

Powder coating is a form of paint that is applied in dry powder form to an object that is then heated and cured. It’s an advanced way of applying decorative and protective finishes. The results are much more durable and tougher than conventional paint, allowing you to get the look you want while making it stand up to whatever you can throw at it.

What are the benefits of powder coating?

There are plenty of advantages powder coating has over conventional paint, including:

  • It’s much more durable because of its thick finish
  • It’s more resistant to UV light meaning it less likely to fade under direct sunlight
  • It increases the life of your product
  • And it makes your product more attractive

There must be disadvantages, right?

As with any coating process, there are some disadvantages to using powder coating, and they include:

  • Less coating control, making it hard to achieve a consistent thickness from beginning to end
  • Matching an underlying color can be difficult
  • Powders cannot be mixed to obtain different colors

Can I get special effects?

The nature of powder coating allows for a wide range of different special effects. Not only will your product have a beautiful finish that will wow anyone looking at it, but it will also last longer and be more durable. Ask us about the many different options available when powder coating in Calgary today.

How long does powder coating last?

The answer, of course, will vary depending on certain things, like surface prep, original treatment, and application, but powder coating is incredibly resilient. In Calgary, and much of Alberta, the whether changes rapidly from one day to the next. Ice and snow can chip away while bright rays of sun can cause fading on conventional paint. Rest assured you can expect powder coating to last much longer than a normal paint finish.

Spray paint or powder coating: which is better?

The debate about spray vs powder is going to boil down to what you really want to achieve with your finished product. Do you want a tougher finish? Are you trying to match colors exactly? These are questions you need to know before choosing. When considering which coating process to use, it’s also good to keep a few other things in mind.

1. Convenience of powder coats vs paints

Powder coating can not only be applied fast, it also takes a shorter time to cure on a surface. Unlike conventional liquid paint that may need days to completely dry, powder can be fully cured in as quickly as 20 minutes. Ultimately, a powder coated product could be used while it’s still cooling from the oven.

2. Production speed

Powder coating can not only be applied fast, it also takes a shorter time to cure on a surface. Unlike conventional liquid paint that may need days to completely dry, powder can be fully cured in as quickly as 20 minutes. Ultimately, a powder coated product could be used while it’s still cooling from the oven.

4. Texture differences

The clear winner when it comes to choosing a color is definitely conventional paint. Because of their liquid state, a supplier can easily mix and match different colors and pigments together to get the exact colors you’re looking for.

In comparison to powder, blending colors involves a specialized production where the hue of any given color relies on the polymer base that’s broken down to create the color. Unlike paint, combining two powders together won’t create a new color, but rather apply a sort of speckled effect consisting of both colors.

3. Choosing colors

While both powder and liquid coating can produce a smooth, glossy finish, it’s much easier to achieve this with liquid paint. Thin powder coats have an orange-like texture. To achieve the smoother finish, you need to apply a thicker coat.

Is powder coating environmentally friendly?

Yes, it absolutely is! With no organic compounds, hazardous air pollutants, or solvents, powder coating is the most environmentally friendly coating option available. But that’s not all. Powder coating can be packaged using less material and transported in larger quantities using less fuel consumption. It’s also evenly applied, meaning no drips and less waste.

The debate about spray vs powder is going to boil down to what you really want to achieve with your finished product. Do you want a tougher finish? Are you trying to match colors exactly? These are questions you need to know before choosing. When considering which coating process to use, it’s also good to keep a few other things in mind.
