Powder Coating vs liquid paint

Powder coating offers the consumer a superior finish while adding many performance properties such as excellent resistance to corrosion, chemicals, heat, impact, abrasion, UV rays and to extreme weather conditions. Not only is powder coating exceptionally tough and impact resistant but it is more cost effective than most other coating options.It is usually a one coat system that is thicker and more durable than the older method of liquid painting which usually consists of several coats being applied.

One of the best reasons for using powder over a liquid paint finish is that it is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution free. No volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or solvents to evaporate into the atmosphere to create health risks for our employees, the general public, or to pollute the world we live in.

Powder is so environmentally friendly that all of the airborne powder in our spray booths goes through the powder filter system and can be vented back into the work area. In fact, one of the major elements in expanding the market for powder coating has been the implementation over the past 30 years of stringent air pollution controls set by environmental protection agencies.

Best of all, powder coating is a superior but cheaper alternative to liquid painting.
