PowderCoatedTough_LogoThe Powder Coating Institute (PCI) is a trade association whose mission is to promote and advance the use of powder coating as a superior finishing solution for the products consumers use every day. From household appliances, furniture and fixtures to automotive and farm equipment, powder coating is a high-quality finish that lasts longer and is more durable than products NOT power coated. And because it has no solvents that might be contained in liquid paint, powder coating is an environmentally friendly finishing solution.

When seeking a long-lasting, “green” product for your home, garden, patio or automobile, before you make a purchase, ask if it is powder coated. Manufacturers and custom coaters who use the “Powder Coated Tough” seal will provide you with products that are stronger-greener-better!

“Powder coating is a green technology! It contains no solvents and therefore does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) nor hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). It is also an efficient process because the overspray (the powder that misses the part) can be retrieved and re-used (unlike liquid paint),” says Dave Lurie, PCI Executive Director.

Powder Coating Creates Beautiful Finishes

In addition to a wide range of simple colors, powder coating can be used to create unique finishes including leatherette, metallics, wrinkles, veins, and clear coats. This is accomplished because powder coating can be sprayed on thicker and more efficiently than liquid paint.

The gloss achieved on a part that is powder coated is equal to or surpasses the gloss of the finest liquid paint. Many auto and motorcycle hobbyists and professionals are using powder to achieve never-before-seen customized coatings.

Powder Coated Products Are All Around You!

Playground equipment, bicycle frames, patio furniture, lawn mowers, kitchen appliances, automobile parts, guard rails, highway signs, exercise equipment, computers, fencing, BBQ grills, motorcycles, shelving, mailboxes, and chainsaws are just a few uses for powder coating.

    I had no idea that powder coating could be so beneficial for products! It is amazing that it can not only give it a good finish, but it can also make them stronger. Reading this, I was a bit concerned that this powder was harmful, but it sounds like it is actually good for the environment. Honestly, it just sounds like this coating is the best option all around since it has so many benefits. Do you know the different kinds of products that this coating can be used for?
