Powder Coating Technology Hand Book:
Powder coatings are used in all markets, subject to the constraints of the technology and often competing with liquid coatings. Market segments within powder are identified such as:
â€¢ Automotive components
â€¢ Domestic appliances (washing machines, radiators, fridges)
â€¢ Metal for architecture (aluminum and steel for window frames)
â€¢ Metal furniture
â€¢ Many general industrial items
â€¢ Computer cases
There is also a large market for job coaters. These are people that coat on behalf of others. Powder coatings were first introduced in the 1950s and since the 1970s market growth has outstripped the general growth of coatings.
Powder Coatings â€“ Multi-purpose. Their areas of application keep expanding. Many product users are taking advantage of the benefits of modern powder coating systems. Three criteria must be met before using powder coating technology:
â€¢ The object to be coated must be suitable in both design and size.
â€¢ The substrate must be conductiveor can be made temporarily conductive.
â€¢ Thermal stability with respect to the baking process.
Metallic objects have generally proved to be suitable. However, modern materials, such as plastics and timber derivatives (MDF), can also be powder-coated. The book â€œPowder Coating Technolotgy Hand Bookâ€ contains following chapters: Powder Coating, Research Overview of Uvcurable
Powder Coatings, UV Curable Powder Coatings, Polyester Powder Coatings, Developments in Resins for Powder Coatings, Calcium Carbonate Extenders for Powder Coating Systems, Thermally Curable Powder Coatings, Where are Powder Coatings Used?, Paint and Powder Coating: Application, Guidelines for powder Coating, Powder Coating Process, Plant Economics of Powder Coating, Plant Economics of Powder Paint for Powder Coating, Plant Economics of Powder Coating Chamber Type, Plant Economics of Powder Coating Paint, Epoxy, Acrylic and Polyster Basis.
