October 27, 2018

 

 

 

When you're trying to enhance the look of your car, you have to choose the right type of paint. While wet paint is often the standard choice, it's not always the best to use. The great news is that powder coating is another option you can use to achieve a high-quality look. Powder coating is the process of applying dry paint to a surface. This type of paint process offers several benefits that makes it a preferred choice over paint. Here's what you need to know:

 

1) Powder Coating is Environmentally Safe

Compared to other types of paint options, powder coating has environmental advantages. Since this paint process does not use solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), you don't have to worry about it causing harm to the environment when it is applied. Also, the waste is not hazardous and can be placed in a landfill. On the other hand, traditional wet automotive paint typically contains a handful of harmful chemicals that could adversely impact the Ozone layer and, ultimately, your health. Moreover, you must take it to special facilities to dispose wet paints correctly.

 

2) Powder Coating is Cost Effective

One of the biggest advantages of powder coating is that it's cheaper than other paints. With powder coating, you're able to cover more surface area than other methods of painting vehicles. This makes it easier reduce material costs when compared to using traditional wet paints. Also, you can lower the cost of disposal since it has no dangerous effect on the environment. You can also expect to see lower energy costs and pay less in operational expenses when you use powder coating versus wet paint.

 

3) Powder Coating is Durable

With powder coating, you can expect paint that can stand the test of time. That because powder coating provides a long-lasting finish. It's also versatile as it comes in a wide range of colors that can be applied to any type of metal. Moreover, the surface that this is applied to will be more resistant to chipping, wear, fading, and scratches when compared to other finishes. This makes powder coating an ideal option for the likes of consumers, industries, and businesses' vehicles.

 

Additionally, you also have several options for enhancing the look of the vehicle since you can easily apply effects, such as a glossy or high-gloss effect. You can even apply a glitter effect to the car using powder coating. Powder coating paint also makes it easy to sustain the vividness of your preferred exterior paint colors.That means you can expect your vehicle to have the same quality brightness and vibrancy over time, which even outlasts other types of finishes. Powder coating also makes it easy to apply a variety of textures to your vehicle, including smooth surfaces to even a wrinkled finish. Furthermore, you can pick a rough texture that can be used to hide imperfections on the surface it's being applied to.

 

4) Powder Coating Enhances Safety

When applying powder coating, you will just need to use some type of safety gear to avoid breathing in the powder. It's also important to protect your skin when this paint is being applied. This makes it easier to handle since the product is solid and doesn't pose any health risks when it's not being used. You will only need to avoid being in the direct path of the paint when you're spraying it. This helps to ensure it doesn't get on your skin. However, it is still manageable if your experience some minimal over spray. On the other hand, wet paints require more safety precautions when they are being handled. This includes requiring a well-ventilated location, having the right safety gear and also limiting the time of exposure to the paint more than you would need to when using powder coating.

 

5) Powder Coating is Flexible

Unlike wet paint, powder coating is able to bend with the surface it is applied to. For example, if you were to able apply wet paint to a surface that slightly bends you could see the paint tear and it would be very noticeable. On the other hand, a powder coated surface is twice as thick than standard paint and will be hard to notice in the area that is affected. This is why the transportation industry heavily favors using this type of paint due to vibration and the countless rock chips and other common road damage that might occur during transportation.

 

Final Thoughts

Powder coating offers a wide range of benefits for the consumers to industries when being used. The cost-effectiveness it brings and the fact that it brings no harm to the environment make it an ideal choice for using to paint the exterior of your car. Handling the product is simple and unlike other paint products it will not cause any health issue when not used.
