Benefits of powder coating
- Yields thick, hard finish that is tougher than traditional paints.
- Electrostatic stage greatly increases the efficiency and productivity of coating by nearly 95%, less paint is wasted and the metal object is fully coated. Powder coating has a one coat finish.
- It creates an even flat surface, the powder is sprayed and heated without drips or application traces.
- The thick finish it produces can be a drawback depending on your needs
- Can be expensive for smaller jobs. Powder coating requires spray materials, electrostatic booth and an oven.
- Ideal for products which cannot be heated for powder coating, powder coating requires an oven while wet paint finishing does not.
- Wet paint has a wider color selection, so if you have a custom color job wet paint is probably the way to go.
- Produces a thinner finish than powder coating.
- It is an economic finishing process.
Drawbacks of wet paint and plating
- Not as durable as powder coating.
- Can require multiple finishes to get an even, perfect finish.
