Unlike every other coating Powder Coatings do not contain a fluid phase (solvent or water) for applying the paint to the substrate. Due to its need for heat (140- 180 C) to cure (crosslink) these paints it can only be applied to substrates that can withstand these temperatures. Most typical steel and aluminium. With no solvent emissions to declare this type of coating is very environmentally friendly.
These powder coatings find most of their uses where robustness and corrosion protection are in demand. Examples being: elements in the construction industry; automotive parts; agricultural and garden equipment.
