Common Uses For Powder Coatings

Powder coatings are applied as a free-flowing, dry powder and are typically applied electrostatically then cured under heat to form a “skin” or hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. 

Common Uses For Powder Coatings:

Around the Kitchen:
  • Washer/dryer shells, motor casings, refrigerators, refrigerator shelving, faucets, sinks, and small appliances. 

Outside the House:
  • Mowers, lawn and garden tools, edgers, and patio furniture.

In the Workplace:
  • Computer hardware, office furniture, filing cabinets, storage and display shelves, warehouse racks, and lighting fixtures. 

Heavy Equipment:
  • Construction equipment, agricultural mowers, irrigation equipment, and tillers. 

Building Products:
  • Rebar and steel cable, columns, water treatment facilities, HVAC units, gas and oil transmission lines, windows, sliding doors, canopies, and architectural decoration.

Transportation Equipment:
  • Truck and trailer wheels, mirrors, supports, frames, steering wheels, wipers, springs, shocks, and other miscellaneous auto parts.

The demand for powder coatings is seeing rapid growth, driven by the development of new materials, formulations, equipment, and applications advancements.  Powder coatings are tough, look great, and last a long time.  In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages.
