Technological advancements allow for maximised production with excellent improved efficiencies and good environmental compliance.
How Powder Coating Works
Powder coatings are based on polymer resin systems, combined with curatives, pigments, levelling agents, flow modifiers and other additives. These ingredients are melt mixed, cooled and ground into a uniform powder similar to that of backing flour. This is applied by using a spray gun, which applies an electrostatic charge to the powder particles, these are attracted to the grounded component. After application of the powder coating, the parts are then placed in a curing oven to finish off the process. This type of application is the most common method of applying powders. Powder coating can also be applied to non-metallic substrates such as plastic and medium density fibreboard (MDF). However United Power Coating Ltd only carry out applications on metal substrates such as aluminium mild steel, stainless steel and galvanised steel, not plastics or wood.
