Q & A

Crosslink South Powder Coating
How is powder coating applied?

The application process involves applying a charge to the dry powder particles and spraying them onto a grounded substrate. The substrate, or part, is typically grounded through the conveyor or hanger holding the part. The powder, once attracted to the part, is then held on the surface until it is melted and cured into a smooth coating film in the bake oven. The spray process takes place inside a booth designed to contain the oversprayed powder and makes it possible to collect and reclaim it for re-use.

The powder is fed pneumatically out of the powder container, or hopper, into the powder applicator, or gun. As the powder exits the gun, a low amperage high voltage charge is applied to the powder particles, causing them to be attracted to the grounded workpiece. This attraction may even cause the powder to "wrap" around the piece coating the back side. The over-sprayed powder suspended in the air contained inside the powder booth, is then passed through a separation process that permits the powder particles to be retrieved from the air. The clean air is fed back to the work environment eliminating the need for air make-up. The reclaimed powder is mixed with a proportionate amount of fresh virgin powder for reuse, achieving consistent results and up to 98% material utilization.
What are the advantages?

Powder coatings are extremely tough and durable. The coating melts into one continuous sheet over the part, offering a very protective barrier along with a beautiful finish.

How much does it cost?

Generally, the cost is actually less than traditional methods of paint application.
