How Does Powder Coating Work?

Powder Metal CoatingAt Roller Die + Forming, we offer a number of finish services to complement our metal forming process. Finishing services are available and useful for applications where the metal needs a coating to provide a smoother feel, a shiner look or needs to be a different color altogether.

A smooth finish made in different ways. The most common are liquid coating and powder coating. At Roller Die, we provide powder coating services to coat the metal, a detail which we believe sets us apart from our competitors. Powder coating generates excellent results and produces less waste than the liquid coating.

What is Liquid Coating?

The liquid coating on metal can be anything from primed paint to liquid metal. These coats create a strong and reinforced film over the metal to increase its overall appearance. The main drawback of using liquid coating is that it is more hazardous because the liquid coating can result in higher waste.

What is Powder Coating?

Powder CoatingPowder coating does not require a solvent to keep the parts separate. Instead, the particles in the powder carry a natural electrical charge. The metal that is going to be coated is energized with the opposite charge of the powder so that when the powder is blown through and around the metal, a perfect, even coat is formed. The part is then cured with heat, creating a hard finish that is tougher than traditional paint.

Powder coating has numerous advantages beyond the fact that it produces less waste. It also allows you to apply a thicker coating and achieve more consistency of appearance. Roller Die team members are experts at using powder coating to generate the best results for our customers. We perform high-density powder coating using standard colors to maximize efficiency and keep your costs low.
