Powder Coating Explained
Why is it called powdercoating? To put it simply, the coating is originally applied as a thermosetting powder made up of polyester, epoxy, and acrylic resin combined with various crosslinking compounds. The powder is so fine that each grain looks like a piece of dust, and you can order powder in thousands of different colors and textures for very specific applications. The powder is usually either sprayed on the part or the part is passed through a booth filled with powder (used most often in mass-production powdercoating).
The powder is usually applied to the component by applying a low-voltage electrical charge to both the part and the plastic particles-but the charges are opposite, so the powder is attracted to the surface of the part. This way, the powder need only be sprayed in the general area of the part for it to evenly coat it. On intricate components, this can create some issues, but the better powdercoaters (such as Cooter's Powder Coating in Grand Blanc, Michigan, which we used for much of the information in this story) have methods to provide an even coating on complex surfaces.
After a part is sprayed, it is transferred to a large oven heated to between 350 and 400 degrees F. It is left there until it attains a temperature at which the powder "melts" and flows into a smooth, extremely durable coating. The heat also causes the powder to chemically react in a process called crosslinking, which is what makes it so durable.
