The global powder coatings market is an emerging market in paint industry and projected to reach a worth of USD 12.48 billion by 2020. The term powder coating is associated with the application of coating in the form of dry powder. The production process of powder coatings includes the method of grinding mixtures of pigments, curatives, and raisins in powder form and then coating a surface by with it by spraying method.
Application of powder coatings on surface is followed by the melting process with the use of oven for even distribution of melted powder, which makes the surface super smooth. There are various methodologies used in application of powder coatings, such as, powder curing method, electrostatic spray method, fluidized bed method, and electrostatic fluidized bed method.
On the basis of usage, the powder coatings are divided into thermoplastics and thermosets powder coatings. Powder coatings have an edge over conventional paints with advantages like super quality finishing, abrasion-free surface, chipping-free area, protection from leakage, heat, and chemicals. There are many organizations like EPA promoting high usage of powder coatings over conventional liquids due to their environmental-friendly properties.
