Another method of imparting color to the surface is powder coating. The dry powder is sprayed onto the substrate before being cooked in the oven until it reaches the melting point. The powder covers the surface and creates a lovely layer for the uniform coating, making the material more resistant to scratching, breaking, UV, and corrosion than traditional liquid painting.
An electrostatic coating system is used in which powder is applied to the target area using charging guns and a fluidized bed with a powder-filled air cavity chamber at the base. It is used to adhere the pre-heated coating to the surface of the powder-coated item.
Surface preparation is a critical step in producing a high-quality powder coating. Remove any oil, lubricant, oxide stains, or other defects from the target substrate's surface. Depending on the material, the quantity of stain, and the size of the area to be cleaned, several cleaning procedures may be employed to remove stains from the substrate. Test the items to ensure they are not harmful to your health.
Sandblasting may be used on wood, plastic, and glass objects, whereas silicon carbide grit is utilized on non-metallic materials. A cast steel shot is used to render the surface for powder coating on steel constructions such as beams.
Colored ground particles are used to make the coating substance. Electrostatically charged particles are sprayed over the surface. Before the procedure is completed, the particles are electrically grounded to ensure that they are securely bound to the surface.
Curing is an essential step that occurs after the powder is applied to the substrate and placed in an infrared or convection curing oven. For 10 minutes, it is heated to roughly 200 degrees Celsius. The powder coating is heated and allowed to bond permanently to the surface in this process.
Using the right equipment, you can create a long-lasting finish that adheres more firmly to the surface than traditional painting. Its success may be attributed to the fact that it is chemically resistant, does not require solvents, and is ecologically friendly.
