GDL Powder Coating

Benefits of Powder Coating

Powder coating is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and other wear because of the thermal bonding it undergoes during curing, and because it can be applied in much thicker layers. This performance is especially important for outdoor products. In addition to its physical toughness, powder coating provides superior color retention.

Long-term exposure to moisture, sunlight, and heat breaks down the resins found in both paint and powder coating. This process, known as chalking, causes resin and pigment particles to lose adhesion. Affected particles form a chalk-like layer on the coating surface. It’s much more durable and resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and weather than its liquid paint

Powder Coating:

  • Contains no VOCs
  • Contains no Solvents
  • Oven Curing time takes 20 minutes, no matter the weather
  • Does not produce hazardous waste – Up to 95% of what is sprayed stays on the metal

Wet Paint:

  • Contains ozone-depleting V.O.C.’s
  • Contains up to 70% solvent
  • Curing wet paint depends on atmospheric conditions and may take days to cure
  • Disposed of as hazardous waste due to the solvents within the paint
