Powder coating is a dry coating process that is used as a metal finish. It’s mostly used on industrial equipment and is applied as a dry powder through an electrostatic process, then cured with heat.
This type of painting process is well known for providing high-quality finishes and end results in terms of both functionalities as well as overall look.
This procedure consists of applying an even coat of paint to a metallic piece. It’s applied in the form of electrically charged 30 to 50-micrometre paint particles which further sticks to the part that is grounded.
How the powder coating process is done?
There are three major steps for getting the powder coating done:
With the help of a variety of chemicals and mechanical methods, the material that needs to be painted must be cleaned first. Make sure there are no contaminants such as oils, soil, metal oxides, welding scales, lubrication greases and other impurities. This step can also include chemical pre-treatments that involves phosphates or chromates for assuring a better surface bonding between the material and the color coat.
Spraying the powder:
The most common and recommended way is by using an electrostatic gun. The gun works by putting a positive charge on the powder particles and proceeds by spraying it to the grounded object that needs to be painted.
After the desired layers of the powder has been applied to the part, they need to merge and stick to the metal surface. This is done by subjecting the coated part to the temperature of around 200 degrees C (390F) for 10 minutes.

The application process is a complete submersion coating process. The system is like a zinc plating application in that it starts with degreasing and rinsing. The next stage of the process is to carry out phosphate conversion to enhance corrosion resistance. The coating material is applied to the components using an electrical current (Cathodic Electro Deposition) in the bath of coating material.
The final coating is an organic coating that is around 20um thick on average. It has excellent corrosion resistance and good chemical resistance. Unlike many of the coatings that we can offer, this material is not UV balanced and therefore is best suited to applications such as engine compartment, under body, interior bracketry, braking components etc etc.
Zinc plating is most commonly used for protecting metals such as iron and steel against the relentless forces of corrosion. Zinc plating works by electrodeposition of a thin layer of zinc metal onto the surface of another metal object, which is known as a substrate.
The zinc coating further works by creating a physical barrier that prevents the rust from reaching out the underlying metal surface. Zinc works well in this case because of its innate ability to fight corrosion.
How Zinc plating is done?
There are three major steps for getting the Zinc plating done:
Zinc plating is said to be a complex process that requires experienced professionals, specialized equipment and machinery.
Preparing and cleaning the surface
The first step is to clean the surface of the substrate prior to plating. Any debris or contaminants present on the surface will not result in proper adhesion of the zinc coating.
Preparing the plating solution
Zinc plating demands the immersion of the substrate into a specially formulated electrolyte solution that is referred to as the plating bath. It consists of the zinc metal ionic solution as well as various chemicals that facilitate the whole plating processes.
Choosing the appropriate zinc plating procedure
After the solution is prepared, the metal is ready for plating. The chosen method can involve rack plating, where larger parts are being affixed to metal racks which are placed inside the tank containing the whole plating bath. The parts remain stationary during the whole plating process. Barrel plating is usually used for smaller parts — instead of a plating tank, the parts are placed inside a barrel and then rotated, which in turn provides a more uniform finish.
Introducing the electrical current
Electroplating is the process in which an electrical current is used for depositing metal ions onto the surface of the substrate. Here, the substrate acts as a cathode. DC current originating at the anode gets into the bath and proceeds flowing to the substrate. These zinc ions are then deposited on the surface. The current flows from the cathode back to the anode to complete the whole circuit.
