Advantages and Disadvantages of Powder Coating:

 

There are several advantages of powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:

 

 

  1. Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds (VOC).
  2. Powder coatings can produce much thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging.
  3. Powder coating overspray can be recycled and thus it is possible to achieve nearly 100% utilisation of the coating.
  4. Powder coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than conventional liquid coatings.
  5. Capital equipment and operating costs for a powder line are generally less than for conventional liquid lines.
  6. Powder coated items generally have fewer appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces than liquid coated items.
  7. The wide range of specialty effects are easily accomplished using powder coatings that would be impossible to achieve with other coating processes.
