Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals,
Because powder coating does not have a liquid carrier, it can produce thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging, and powder coating produces minimal appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces. Because no carrier fluid evaporates away, the coating process emits few volatile organic compounds (VOC). Finally, several powder colors can be applied before curing them all together, allowing color blending and bleed special effects in a single layer
Powder Coating gives consumers, businesses, and industries one of the most economical, longest lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes.
Powder Coatings resist cracking, peeling, and chipping. Powder coat is abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistant. This does not mean that it will not crack, peel, chip, scratch, or corrode.
Environmentally Friendly? Powder coating is recognized as an environmentally friendly process because it doesn't rely on solvents or chemical carriers like traditional wet-paint systems. Because powder coating relies on the electrostatic charge to hold the paint to the work piece, powder coating eliminates VOC emission problems.

Powder coating Process
Removal of oil, soil, metal oxides, welding scales, etc. is essential to the powder coating process. Chemical pre-treatments involve the use of phosphates in submersion. These often occur in multiple stages and consist of degreasing, etching, de-smutting, various rinses and the final phosphating of the substrate. The pre-treatment process both cleans and improves bonding of the powder to the metal.
Then we apply the powder coating using an electrostatic gun. The gun imparts a positive electric charge on the powder, which is then sprayed towards the grounded object by mechanical air spraying and then accelerated toward the railing by the powerful electrostatic charge. The railing is then heated, and the powder melts into a uniform film, and is then cooled to form a hard coating.
