Repair of parts and hanger stripping in powder coating

The methods of part repair after powder coating can be put into two categories : touch-up and recoat. Touch-up repair is appropriate when a small area of the coated part is not covered and is unable to meet finishing specifications. When hanger marks are not acceptable, touch-up is required. Touch-up also may be used to repair slight damage from handling, machining, or welding during assembly. Recoat is required when a part is rejected because of a large surface area defectRead More …

Why Powder Coating

ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS The excellence of the powder-coated finish is accompanied by substantial cost savings, when compared to liquid coating systems. Since powder contains no VOCs, air used to exhaust the powder spray booth can be recirculated directly to the plant, eliminating the cost of heating or cooling the makeup air. Ovens that cure solvent-based coatings must heat and exhaust huge volumes of air to ensure that the solvent fumes do not reach a potentially explosive level. With no solvent inRead More …

The market for electronic components protective coatings exceed US$20 billion In 2025

electronic components protective coatings

A new report from GlobalMarketInsight Inc. shows that by 2025, the market for protective coatings for electronic components will exceed $20 billion. Electronic component protective coatings are polymers used on printed circuit boards (PCBs) to electrically insulate and protect components from environmental stresses such as moisture, chemicals, dust, and debris. These coatings can be applied using spray techniques such as brushing, dipping, manual spraying or automatic spraying. Increased use of portable electronic products, increased demand for automotive electronics applications, andRead More …

Powder Coating Storage and Transportation in Summer

Powder Coating Storage

With the advent of summer, powder caking is a problem for many manufacturers. In addition to the process problems in the production process, storage and transportation are factors that affect the final spraying results. In summer, the temperature and humidity is high, and directly affect the final coating quality of the powder coating. The first is the effect of temperature, powder coatings must maintain their particle size in order to operate and use. Most thermosetting powder coatings are formulated toRead More …

Factors affecting the leveling property of powder coatings

powder coating spray

Powder coating is a new type of solvent-free 100% solid powder coating. It has two main categories: thermoplastic powder coatings and thermosetting powder coatings. The paint is made of resin, pigment, filler, curing agent and other auxiliaries, mixed in a certain proportion, and then prepared by hot extrusion and sifting and sieving. They are stored at room temperature, stable, electrostatic spraying or fluidized bed dip coating, reheating and baking melt solidification, so that the formation of a smooth and long-lastingRead More …

Application of Self-Healing Coating Technology in Powder Coatings

Since 2017, many new chemical suppliers entering the powder coating industry provided new assistance for the advancement of powder coating technology. The coating self-healing technology from Autonomic Materials Inc. (AMI) provides a solution to the increased corrosion resistance of epoxy powder coatings. The coating self-healing technology is based on a microcapsule with a core-shell structure developed by AMI and can be repaired when the coating is damaged. This microcapsule is post-mixed In the preparation of powder coating process . OnceRead More …

Configuration of powder coating application equipment

There are many ways to apply powder coating materials; however, the material that is to be applied must be of a compatible type. For instance, if the method of application is fluidized bed. then the powder coating material must be a fluidized bed grade, Conversely, if the method of application is electrostatic spray, then the powder material must be an electrostatic spray grade. Once the material is correctly selected, then the method of application is selected by part design andRead More …
