Dry powder is shot through an electrostatic gun. Liquid paint is dispensed in a fine spray. Both processes are electrostatically charged but painting is to much less effect. Some textures can be attained equally well by powder coating or wet paint, but others are easier to achieve with a particular medium.
Powder coating can be used to coat many types of materials. The most common material is metal, but you can also powder coat wood, plastic, composites, glass, and MDF. The first consideration for coating objects besides metal, is can it withstand the temperature. Most plastics will melt when subjected to 400 degree heat for any
Powder coating operation provides economic solutions and high performance for manufacturing sector with rising technology. The material is protected from chemical action, damp, corrosion, physical damage thanks to powder coating. There are two types of powder coats, thermoplastic and thermoset. Typically, manufacturers examine overall costs and potential coating complexity when deciding which type is most appropriate for their application.
