There are many advantages into using custom powder coating other than traditional coatings such as:
- Durability. Aside from the fact that it is economical and long lasting, custom powder coating is also providing a color finish that is durable because of its high quality. It can be used in almost all types of metal surface. Once the metal surface has been powder coated, it is able to protect the material from wear and tear, fading, chipping and scratching which is common in other finishes. There are also unlimited color options when it comes to custom powder coating like gloss, satin, high gloss, clear, wrinkle, flat, metallic, glitter, hammer tone, candies, fluorescent and iridescent. It is recommended if long lasting color and brightness is required. There are also various textures available to choose from such as smooth, matte, wrinkled and rough which is helpful in altering the surface texture.
- Environment friendly. This type of coating is more eco-friendly compared to other coating. It is a known fact that liquid used in coating contains harmful solvents such as VOCs or volatile organic compounds which could pollute the environment. In the case of powder coatings, it has no solvents in its composition and it has negligible amount of VOCs or none at all. Equipment which is required for pollution control is now deemed unnecessary when it comes to powder coating.
- Cost-effective. Because there are no pollutions to be controlled and waste are decreased immensely, a lot of money was also saved. Companies and industries will find it easier to meet the requirements set as well by the environment protection agency of every country. There are legislations in place that prevents the use of harmful substances that could pollute the air and because powder coating poses no threat then it has helped increased in its popularity.
