Bio-Based Powder Coating in the Near Future

Posted on: November 17th, 2014 by byersbushblog

One thing that is always certain is change. Even the powder coating industry is subject to change and it is coming. It is coming in the form of bio-based powder coating formula. While they are not yet available for use in shops or for sale on the commercial market, researchers are close to making them ready for the public. (more…)

Efficient Powder Coating Transfer

Posted on: November 10th, 2014 by byersbushblog

Electrostatic charges are what make powder coating work. The gun creates a charge on the powder particles, so when the charge is higher, the transfer becomes more efficient. There are important factors that affect the strength of the electrostatic field. Those factors include the voltage of the applicator and the target distance between the applicator and the part that is being powder-coated. (more…)

Thermoplastic Powders

Posted on: November 3rd, 2014 by byersbushblog

In the world of powder coating, there are different types of resins that can be used to cover a part. The two categories of resins are thermoplastic and thermoset. Thermoplastic is commonly used because to powder melts when heat is applied so it can flow onto the part. Thermoplastics also maintain the same chemical makeup in powder and solid form. Thermoset powder does the same thing when applied to parts but the powders create a film that creates a different chemical makeup than the original powder form has. (more…)
