Some of the most popular types of powder coating include epoxy powder, polyester powder and hybrid powder. Each powder has its own benefits but all provide excellent durability, it is important though to factor in the different types of powder coating when deciding which powder may be best suited for specific applications.
Due to its high resistance to corrosion and severe weather conditions powder coating is a perfect choice for the automotive industry. It’s also highly resistant to scratching and chipping making powder coating very durable without losing any of its quality.
In most cases powder coating can maintain its finish up to 15-20 years, this does depend on the pre-treatment and the type of powder used in the process. Its resistance to weather, corrosion, and chemicals makes powder coating a more durable finish than paint or other liquid coatings.
Most commonly used are aluminium and steel (including stainless, galvanized & anodized) but bronze, copper, brass and titanium can also all be powder coated. If the metal can hold an electromagnetic charge and withstand the heat from the curing process, it can be powder coated.
