Powder coating is the most popular method of painting metal elements such as: elements of building structures, fences and balustrades. Powder paint perfectly adheres to the painted surface, creating a smooth coating, the coverage is perfectly even, without stains or wrinkles. A very important element is to clean and degrease the surface before painting.
Powder coating of various types of materials ensures durability for years, resistance to atmospheric or chemical factors, moisture and UV radiation. These paints are resistant to rust and corrosion, their great advantage is also that the colors do not fade. In addition to a wide range of colors, we can choose various types of textures, such as gloss, mat or satin. The great advantage of powder coating is the lack of solvents, which means that these paints are environmentally friendly and are not harmful to our health. Powder coating is increasingly used for materials such as steel, cast iron, aluminum, glass, MDF boards, wood, ceramics and others. Each of them requires proper surface preparation. Powder coating makes the surface smoother, and small imperfections are hidden under the paint layer. Painting aluminum, and specifically aluminum rims, is very popular. Thanks to this method, rims become resistant to corrosion and mechanical damage, and is currently perceived as the best way to renovate rims.
POWDER PAINTING – TYPES OF PAINTS
The paints used in the powder coating technology are distinguished by a huge variety. Due to the composition, powder paints are divided into: epoxy, polyester and so-called hybrid mix, i.e. epoxy-polyester. The choice of paints for smooth, textured or porous surfaces allows the application of powder coating to a wide variety of materials. We can choose a glossy, metallic, matte or semi-matte effect, such a wide range of colors and visual effects makes this method very popular. The choice of paint in terms of composition is very important, as it affects the durability of the color and keeping the surface in perfect condition.
POWDER PAINTING – APPLICATION
Wherever we want to obtain a smooth surface of the element, we can successfully use powder paints, it solves the problem of stains, unevenness or bubbles, which often arise when painting with traditional methods. Before starting powder coating, a very important element is to clean and degrease the surface to be subjected to this process, because only then can we be sure that the painted element will last for many years. The powder coating technique is used primarily in the automotive industry due to its high resistance to weather conditions and corrosion, as well as its durability. This method is also increasingly used in the construction industry.
Powder paints protect against moisture and high temperatures, therefore they are an ideal solution for gutters, balustrades, fences and various sheets. Powder coating is also great for painting everyday elements such as door handles, handles and household appliances, because these paints are ecological and completely safe for humans. Powder coating allows you to achieve an even, thin coverage of home appliances, which, as a result, are resistant to scratches, bruises and the effects of detergents used every day in our homes.
