Manufacturing of Powder Coatings; Series 3 of 3

The process of manufacturing powder coatings is a relatively complex process that must be carefully controlled to ensure a high-quality final product.  Powder coatings are manufactured in a multi-step process of pre-mixing, extrusion, and micronization.  Basically, materials are blended, melted, cooled, and then pulverized. This blog will focus on micronizing, the last step in the process. 

Micronizing Process: the powder chips are fed into a grinding machine, which breaks the chips down into a fine powder.  The powder is then filtered to ensure that no large particles contaminate the powder.
