Common Powder Coating Terms

Powder coating metals can make them more resistant to wear and tear and corrosion. If you want to protect car or motorcycle parts, having a powder coating applied can be a great option. The following are a few terms commonly used in relation to powder coating processes that you may want to be familiar with.

  • Thermosets – Thermosetting powder coatings react chemically when heated in an oven to form polymers. The powder transforms into a strong coating, for instance a plastic or rubber, during the heating process, which cannot be simply reversed.
  • Thermoplastic – Thermoplastic powders become liquids when heated. They are then cooled to form solid coatings. Unlike thermosetting powders, thermoplastics can be melted again and reshaped.
  • Anodizing – Anodizing is a process that protects metals from corrosion and wear. Anodizing can also prepare parts for painting and gluing. Anodizing is most commonly used on objects made from aluminum, for instance, bicycle parts. However, it can also be completed on other metals like titanium or zinc.
  • Sandblasting – Sandblasting is a process that uses a machine to direct a high powered flow of an abrasive material, like sand, at an object. Sandblasting can be used to smooth surfaces, create texture, shape surfaces, or remove coatings and paint.
  • Chrome Plating – Chrome plated metals have been covered in a thin layer of chromium to protect against corrosion, harden their surface, or to improve their appearance. Chrome plating is common on motorcycles, car rims, and vehicle parts. Chrome plated parts can be powder coated for additional protection.

    Powder coatings are substances that are commonly applied to metals and other materials as free-flowing, dry powders. The purpose of these powder coatings is to provide protection. This type of coating is typically applied to surfaces electrostatically, and then heated. Hard coats like this are often made from materials like epoxy, ceramic substances or polyurethane. The can be used on anything from guns, to ovens, to bicycles, to tools, to machinery. There are specific systems and processes required for applying powder coatings. For example, chrome aluminum is one type of powder coating that is often used on bicycles and other metals. The application process takes time, but the end result is a protective coat to help the bicycle deal with weather and wear. As you may know, many items you utilize in the home have powder coatings. While some are colored coatings, others are black. For a reasonable price, powder coatings can even be incorporated into DIY projects. However, it is important to learn plenty about this process and the materials involved before getting started with anything on your own. This way you will have a good idea of what you are getting into. You can learn more about custom powder coatings and the manufacturers or company locations that deal with this process by surfing the web. This is also a good way to get more specifics and details regarding materials like epoxy, polyester, ceramics, and polyurethane. Especially if you are interested in doing DIY projects on your own with items like guns, ovens, or other hard surfaces.
