Turnkey Powder Coating Systems and Its Advantages in Overall Production

December 13, 2019

This is a topic that requires more coverage, with lots of focus placed on in-house powder coating quality control. To keep finish quality high, all while simultaneously becoming part of today's turnkey culture, a modular workflow is an undeniable system asset to have at your fingertips. However, care should be taken, for this one-size-fits-all attitude could negatively impact an otherwise highly adaptable work style.

Limit Hazardous Airborne Particulates During Powder Coating with Dust Collectors and Cyclones

December 3, 2019

Powder coating involves an easy way to coat and protect the surface of a material. This process is pretty straightforward if all variables are controlled. One of the main problems that companies have with powder coating is the presence of airborne particulates around them. During the coating process, some particulates like dirt, dust, and others inevitably latch to the surface of the material. When unchecked, these substances can ruin the coating in the long run.

Powder Coating vs. Anodizing: What is the Difference?

November 22, 2019

All materials and components of equipment, automobiles, and other related things are coated with protective layers to avoid wear and tear in just a short amount of time. Mostly made of different types of metal, the lifespan of these materials last longer when coated than the ones without any protective layers.

The Significance of Powder Coating Ovens in Automotive Manufacturing

November 6, 2019

Traditionally, automotive industries have been using liquid coating technique to wrap and paint important car parts. This conventional method has a lot of drawbacks, which often make suppliers and consumers go back and ask for another set of coating. But with the rising popularity of the powder coating technique, it is safe to say that this technique can bring huge advancements to automotive manufacturing.

Emerging Technologies in Powder Coating for a Sustainable Future

October 18, 2019

Sustainable futures forecast a downturn in allowable industry emissions. Waste products must also be either minimized or somehow recycled. With most industries, that's a challenging pair of provisos to address and then fulfil. Of some relief here, the powder coating sector has already planned for just such a future. If this assertion doesn't ring true, check out a powder coating booth. We're all about the reclamation process in here.

How the Right Powder Coating Equipment and Powder Coating Application Can Help Avert Corrosion and Rust

October 9, 2019

When you need a non-corrosive surface finish, a coating that's both tough and visually appealing, powder coating technology has the anti-corrosive solution you need. Without wishing to sound too much like an infomercial, the dry coating does use an array of smart equipment types, all of which are designed to provide protection against oxidizing environments. Right from the get-go, the right gun nozzles and electrostatic power supplies assure universal surface coverage.

The Benefits of Powder Coating in Metal Fabrication

September 19, 2019

Metal surfaces are dense and hard, so do they need the services of a powder coating company? Before answering that question, think about metal weaknesses. Loaded with tensile strength, chemically sensitive alloys can oxidize. Sure, the core structure stays strong, but the surface metal fatigues and loses mechanical resilience. Already, then, two distinctly advantageous features come to mind when a powder coating operation is optioned.

How Magnetic Induction Method Measure Powder Coating Thickness

September 6, 2019

Although powder coating guns meticulously apply thin films of air-driven particles, that feature is rarely blindly accepted. Certainly, if the company in question is targeting a quality-assurance certification, they're not just going to coat a workpiece and send it straight to the curing oven, no questions asked. No, as part of that QA program, the protective sheathing has to be thickness-audited, and this skin verification check must be professionally conducted.

Overcoming the Faraday Cage Effect in Powder Coating Application

August 22, 2019

Tied to the powder coating process, The Faraday cage effect takes place inside confined workpiece areas. The electrostatic fields flow, as the laws of physics command, but a seemingly invisible barrier degrades those forces as they move into a part's corner or recess. And, since the powder follows the path of those lines of charged energy, the tiny capsules can't help but treat these recesses as no-go areas. That's a problem.

The Significance of Particle Size in Powder Coating Transfer Efficiency

August 6, 2019

Looking deep, coating particles are clearly incredibly fine. They're discharged from an electrostatic gun, driven forward by compressed air, then there's a split-second of airborne drift. At this point, a workpiece with an opposing charge attracts the tiny pigment-loaded grains.

The Differences Between Powder Coating and Electroplating

July 18, 2019

Electrostatic fields attract air-carried charged powders until a uniformly coated layer blankets an oppositely charged workpiece. That, in a nutshell, is how powder coating works. Now, electroplating might seem like a similar coating system, but it's really an entirely different process. Right off the bat, plating is done in a wet bath. Powder coating is a dry process. That's a pretty significant difference, and there are others.

Powder Coat Adhesion Testing Process

July 4, 2019

Just to clarify matters, there are ways of testing powder coat adhesion strength. That fact may come as something of a surprise, especially when you remember just how hard it is to part a baked-in coating from its surface, but there are test procedures that are designed to get around such challenges. Fused to a workpiece or not, the testing process measures adhesion integrity most effectively.
