Composition of Powder Coatings

Powder coating is a dry finishing process that has become extremely popular in the industrial finishing market, and is used on a wide array of products. More and more companies specify powder coatings for a high quality, durable finish, allowing for maximized production, improved efficiencies, and simplified environmental compliance.  Used as protective and decorative finishes, powder coatings are available in an almost limitless range of colors and textures, and technological advancements have resulted in excellent performance properties.

So what's in a powder coating?
  • Resin – either polyester or epoxy.
  • Curing agents – added to bind the coating.  For polyesters, primid curing agents are used.  For epoxies, dicyandiamide curing agents are used.
  • Additives – give the powder a desired effect.
  • Tint pigments – there are two types: inorganic, which are generally pale and dull; and organic, which are more brightly colored.
