When it comes to cost-effectiveness, powder coating’s efficiency heavily beats out traditional painting. With a transfer rate of around 60-70%, compared to the 30-35% transfer rate of paint, you're getting a lot more bang for your buck by choosing powder coating.
Powder coating is a much safer process than spray painting because it doesn't involve any toxic solvents or volatile organic compounds that can be harmful if inhaled. The active ingredient in powder coating — polymer powder — is totally inert and free of toxins.
Powder coating isn't just eco-friendly during the application process – it's also better for the environment in the long run. Because powder polymers don't contain any toxins or volatile organic compounds, there's no greenhouse gas emission from the leftover powder, while spray paint releases several harmful toxins into the atmosphere every time you use it.
Powder finishes are thicker and much harder to crack or peel than spray-painted finishes, making them more durable overall. Plus, because powder coatings are more flexible, they're perfect for items that change shape or have moving parts.
Due to its short curing time, powder coating offers process efficiency that boosts production; while paint can take several days to dry completely, powder polymers cure in under 20 minutes. In fact, a powder-coated item can be put to work as soon as it cools down after being removed from the oven.
While wet paints offer a wider variety of colors for your finished parts, in instances where wear-resistance and longevity are the main focus, the wide range of colors available for powder coating proves to be more than sufficient for the vast majority of projects.
