Powder Coating in Reading
Powder coating is a harder wearing coating that is applied as a dry powder electrostatically and is then cured (thermosetting) under heat around 180℃ for around 10 minutes to allow it to flow and harden.
The main difference between a conventional wet paint and a powder coat is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form, allowing a better, harder finish with less chance of finish defects like bugs in the paint or runs and sags.
Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, gates, aluminium extrusions and automotive and bicycle parts. But blast and coat have the expertise to coat non metallic items such as MDF, Glass and even plastic.
