How does powder coating work?
Powder coating is different to conventional liquid paint products, although the finished result looks just like regular paintwork. This coating is applied as free-flowing, dry powder and then bonded to the object electrostatically and then cured under heat. This forms a hard ‘skin’ that is evenly applied over the object.
What objects can benefit from powder coating?
Most metals can benefit from a powder coated finish, including household appliances,
aluminium furniture, drum hardware, and automobile, manufacturing components and bicycle parts.
How can I clean my powder coated surfaces?
Here are three crucial steps to follow when cleaning your powder coating:
- Using a wet sponge, wipe away any dirt from the surface
- Use a soft, non-abrasive, brush and a mild detergent, such as liquid dishwashing detergent
diluted in warm water (do not use solvents) to remove dust, salt and other dirt
- Rinse the surface thoroughly with cold water after cleaning
How can I avoid damaging the powder coating?
Here are a few procedures to remember for protecting your powder coated surfaces:
- Mask any powder coated surfaces when building, renovating, plastering or painting with
approved tapes only
- If paint splatters or sealants land on the surface, do not allow it to dry. Remove it immediately
- Avoid using turpentine, white spirits, thinner or other strong solvents on powder coating
- Do not excessively rub the powder coated surface, particularly metallic finishes
- Wash off any sunscreens that touch a powder coated surface as the chemicals can tarnish
Why do you use higher-grade powders?
Depending on the environment, the quality difference between high and low grade powders can be visible within 7 years. The powders we utilise, from Dulux, Interpon and Jotun, have better colour retention and durability than cheaper brands.
