No matter your main business concern - whether it's cost, quality, safety, or environmental - powder coating surpasses paint in every category.
Highly efficient - one coat and done, covers more area than many other finishes, less reworking
Less waste overall - any oversprayed powder can be collected and reused
Lower energy costs
Reduced disposal costs
Cheaper than wet paint
Completely cured within 20 minutes of leaving the oven - paint can take days to dry
Twice as thick as most paints
Can bend and yield with vibration and jarring
Highly resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, corrosion, chemicals, and weather
No drips or other application traces
Huge array of finishing colors and textures - metallic, fluorescent, gloss, glitter, smooth, wrinkled, matte, etc.
Aside from basic manufacturing safety standards (don't breathe it in or get it on your skin), powder coatings are incredibly safe to handle and use. The powders are non-toxic, non-volatile, and completely safe when being sprayed or just sitting around.
Wet paint can be flammable, carcinogenic, and very hazardous to employees if handled incorrectly. In contrast, powder coatings pose little to no short or long-term health, fire, or workplace dangers.
Powder coatings contain no solvents or volatile organic compounds. They can be recycled or disposed of in landfills. They have a low impact on the atmosphere. They're not hazardous, and so there's no need for costly pollution control equipment.
