Powder coating is a dry finishing process where a color or coating is applied electrostatically. The coated part is then placed in an oven where the powder melts into an even, solid coat across the entire surface of the part. It can provide both functional and decorative surface coatings in a wide range of colors, finishes, and textures that are not readily achievable by conventional liquid coating methods. In architecture, they are widely used for coating of windows and door frames, fencing, building facades
In an era where compliance with environmental regulations is essential for companies in all industries, the powder-coating process offers an eco-friendly alternative to liquid painting and other commonly applied metal finishing techniques. Most powder-coat products are free of potentially harmful chemical solves and release few or no volatile organic compounds (VOC) into the atmosphere.
Powder coating comes in a variety of colors and finishes, all depending on the particular needs of the application. Metallic, high and low gloss and clear finishes are all possible with powder coating.
Fluorocarbon (PVDF) coating is a resin based liquid coating system. They are widely used when a durable coating is needed on project exteriors to resist weathering, chalking, fading, and UV rays while offering exceptional protection to the substrate. They also possess a self-cleaning and exceptional dirt-repelling characteristics, thus requires little to no maintenance. Due to their exceptional resistance to chalking and chemicals, they are often used in harsh and critical environments like coastal areas, chemical plants and hospitals.
Today more than ever, architects around the world appreciate the benefits of PVDF coatings and specify these advanced coatings for monumental, industrial and commercial applications, especially for building wall facades.
Structures coated with PVDF coatings over a decade ago still have their original beauty and appearance, showing that PVDF based coatings deliver reliable, long-lasting performance in real world conditions.
