Operational Impact of Powder Coating

Posted on: June 19th, 2014 by byersbushblog

Though a relatively new technology, powder coating has proved a popular choice for smart and savvy individuals looking for a durable and long-lasting finish.

Powder coating has other operational benefits, though, that many can overlook when opting to get started in the powder coating industry.

Let’s have a look at some of these benefits and the overall operational impact of powder coating.

  • Fewer rejects, less waste: Powder coating does not require drying or the use of a material with changeable consistency, so dripping and running are not real risks. As a result, the powder coating process is, on the whole, an automatic one. This means the reject rate is much smaller than that of other methods.
  • Versatility: Powder coating is an efficient process in more than one way. If a client desires a color change, this can be done with minimal disruption to the overall process, so powder coating is a highly flexible finishing method.
  • Easy compliance with regulation: Powder coating poses fewer risks than other finishing methods, so fulfilment of permittance criteria is substantially easier, which can enable the contractor to save time and money without operating a business that doesn’t comply with regulations.
  • Training efficiency: One area in which many contractors wish to save time, but haven’t before now been able to justify it, is in staff training. Because powder coating involves dry material, which poses fewer health and safety risks than fume-abundant wet materials, staff training need only be minimal, with less emphasis on how to deal with error, wastage and complex operation processes than other methods require.
  • A shorter road to completion: One of the reasons many traditional finishing methods can require long periods of time for completion is because one coat is not usually enough to produce high quality results. This is because much of the product will end up wasted. Powder coating adheres to its surface because of electrostatic charge, resulting in less waste and more one-coat coverage.
  • Lower heating costs: The curing process can be a real drain on finances with traditional solvent-based finishing methods, but powder coating curing ovens run at a lower temperature than these methods, meaning you’ll save money on the final stage of the finishing process.
  • Faster overall operation: Because no drying time is required, powder coated parts can move through the final stages of completion much quicker than traditional methods, meaning your production line is much more efficiently run.
