Powder coating is better than paint here’s why.
More than just paint, it the application itself that makes it better.
Powder coating is a dry finishing process widely used in various industries since the 1960s. It represents 15% of the industrial finishing market and offers a high-quality, durable finish. It can be both protective and decorative, offering a wide range of colors and textures. Powder coatings are made from polymer resin systems with pigments and additives, applied to metal substrates using electrostatic spray deposition. After application, the coating is cured in an oven to create strong molecular chains, making it highly resistant to breakdown.
