Powder coating in a nutshell: methods and applications

First things first: powder coating is a method in which you – simply said – apply powder unto a heated surface. This can be done in two ways: electrostatic spray deposition and fluidized bed application. We’ll talk you through both of them:

Example of fluidised bed coating

  1. Electrostatic Spray Deposition (ESD)
    The most used method of powder coating. It involves an electrostatic spray gun, a curing oven and an object (substrate) to spray it on. The spray gun applies an electrostatic charge to the powder, which are in turn attracted to the  (pre-heated) substrate. After application, the object is placed in an special type of curing oven where the addition of heat unleashes an chemical reaction. This results in a colorful and strong layer!
  2. Fluidised bed application
    In this method, the preheated object is dipped in a big tub of fluidized powder! As a result, the powder melts and will stick to the substrate. Curing in an oven afterwards might be needed, depending on the type of powder and the mass of the object. More efficient than spraying, but isn’t suitable for every object.

Not every surface can be powder coated: it can only be applied on substrates that resists high temperatures, like metals and a few wood or MDF-types.

Thanks to those two systems (and the benefits of the layer itself), powder coating is widely used. Here in South Africa, the coating is gaining more ground every day!

For example, you could use it on:

  • Car parts, like rims or exhausts
  • Machinery in working places
  • Aluminium (window) frames and doors
  • Radiators
  • Pipelines (for liquids or gas)
  • Agricultural vehicles and machines
  • Steel fences
