POWDER COATING

Metal coating is a form of surface protection that has great advantages over other types of metals and non-metal protection. It does not pollute the environment, it is easy and satisfies to meet all requirements, effects, nuances and the like. In many cases European standards require the form of powder coating as surface protection.

What is powder coating?

Powder coating is the application of a coating (paint) in powder form. No water or solvent is needed to apply the paint. This makes this form of coating durable and qualitatively controlled. Powder coating is mixed with air and applied electrostatically. Because the powder paint particles are electrostatically charged during spraying, it adheres to everything where it can get rid of the load.

This sounds complicated, but we know it all: rub an inflated balloon along a sweater and the particles will hang on it.

With powder coating the same thing only happens, we use an electrostat that generates static charge. By passing the air and powder coating along this, the powder particles get charge. The products that need to be sprayed are grounded so that the load can easily disappear. As with a balloon, the powder coating particles stick to the product.

After application, the products go into an oven and the products are heated. At about 100 ° C the powder coating melts and behaves like normal paint; it flows and becomes a smooth layer. With this the properties have not yet been determined. Powder coatings are (in most cases) 2-component coatings that only react with each other above 160-200 ° C. After having been at this temperature for about 20-30 minutes, the coating has been fully reacted and has all the desired properties. After cooling, the product is immediately ready for use or further processing

Plasticising fits in environmental standards. The plasticisation process does not use solvents and additives that are harmful to health and the environment.

The size of our oven is 7 x 3 x 2.5 meters, where a wide range of products can be plasticized.
