Powder Coatings – Eco-friendly Coatings Solution
Powder coatings are in high demand primarily due to its eco-friendly features as very less amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are found in powder coatings and low wastage during production and consumption. Equipment development is a major contributing factor towards opening up various application areas for powder coatings. In case of wet surface treatment there are some newly developed chrome free equipment processes based on zirconium, titanium and silane compounds. This newly developed systems allow the toxic products to get substituted. These techniques also offer simultaneous degreasing and pickling, which significantly reduces processing time. Technological advancements in the field of UV and IR curing facilities is estimated to fuel production speed of powder coating systems. UV and IR curing solutions are used in the powder coatings industry as they enable rapid curing of the coating to a solid state.
