Powder coatings are one of the easiest ways to protect equipment and other objects. Coating that is applied as a powder starts out free-flowing, and it doesn’t contain solvents because it doesn’t need a binder in order to stay in liquid form. Sometimes a powder coating just makes more sense than a liquid paint coating.
For example, powder emits almost no volatile organic compounds, so it provides a safer indoor environment. Also a powder coating tends to be thicker than a liquid coating, and any overspray that’s left after coating an object can be reused, making it more economical than a liquid coating.
