Powder coating is a process used by fabrication shops and finishing companies. It provides a protective finish to the metal. For example, with powder coated steel, rust has no chance of destroying the components and/or product. In the automotive industry, powder coating a steel frame is more than rust inhibitive.
The Durability of Powder Coated Steel
Powder coating is a dry process. It applies finely ground particles of pigment and resin to produce a durable coating. The result is a finish that, although it is certainly not indestructible, is resistant to not only rust but other issues that affect a vehicle. These include:
The powder coated parts of vehicles are also better able to withstand damages resulting from exposure to many chemicals. These characteristics result in not only a durable product but a highly desirable one.
The Safety of Applying Powder Coating to Steel and Other Metals
Besides providing powder coated steel with a rust resistance quality the process is also more environmentally friendly than others are. Those involved in the actual process are at less risk for toxicity. The powder is also less apt to burst into flames. Overall, powder coating is safer than other processes for those who work with it. The process is also a more environmentally friendly option. This is, in part, the result of less wastage and the use of non-toxic ingredients.
Powder Coated Steel Is Rust Free
Powder coating is more frequently used in the automotive industry as a protective measure. Powder coated steel provides rust free components. This, in turn, results in a more durable and long-lasting vehicle. The protective powder coating is also better than the environment than other comparable processes. Overall, this makes powder coating the logical choice for finishing many industrial products. While the automotive industry remains the main beneficiary, other manufacturers are increasingly relying on the process to improve both products and dividends.
