How Powder Coating Works
The Tampa Bay Powder Coating process uses a solvent free dry mix of plastic resins, pigments and fillers that melt and fuse together when heated. The solid particles of coating are electrostatically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the powder particles in place while the part is cured in a 400+ degree oven. The heat of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure, creating a highly durable finish.
Our powder coatings resist cracking and peeling and are extremely abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistant. Performance characteristics of powder coating match or exceed the those achieved from conventional solvent-based coatings. Here’s how we do it:
- We carefully pretreat the object or part using our 5 stage preparation process.
- We then electrically charge the metal, which allows the powder to adhere to the metal.
- Then we apply the powder with a special applicator gun that evenly coats the electrically charged areas.
- After fully coated, we put it in our oven and bake it at low temperatures of 275 to high temperatures of 425 degrees, allowing the powder to gel and then harden.
- Finally, we allow proper time for cooling and wrap it to protect the new finish during delivery.
