Trends of Powder coating application in automotive market in USA
Powder coating surface treatment of ancillary products as durable goods applications, the main applications include automotive, residential, home, industrial equipment and gardening equipment and so on. Despite the current global automotive industry continued weakness in the case of GM and other car companies are going through bankruptcy, reorganization of assets and other major changes, but from the historical data show that in 2003 and 2008, automotive powder coating growth is very obvious. Automobile industry alone by 2013 there will be more cars interior and auto parts, the choice of the powder coating surface coating approach, by the negative impact of the industry, but the actual powder coating in the automotive manufacturing proportion of the applications, but also there was a substantial rise.
The powder coating is a new type of solvent-free 100% solid powder coating. With no solvent, no pollution, save energy and resources, reduce labor intensity, and characteristics of the coating mechanical strength. It has two categories: the thermoplastic powder coating and thermosetting powder coating. Coating made of special resin, fillers, curing agents and other additives by hot extrusion, a certain proportion of mixed and prepared from crushed sieved and other processes. They are storage stable at room temperature by electrostatic spraying, friction coating (thermosetting method), or fluidized bed dip coating (thermoplastic methods), and then the baking heat melting and solidification to form a permanent coating of smooth and bright, reaching decorative and anti-corrosion purposes.
