Powder coating offers real benefits that increase profits, make products more desirable, and improve product performance
When a powder coated product or powder coating service is introduced to the market, everyone benefits. The manufacturer, the distributor and the end-user all benefit from the value of powder coated goods. For the manufacturer, the benefit is directly linked to lower finishing costs. These lower costs improve profitability for the manufacturer and give their distributors a competitive advantage. The distributors also benefit from the greater desirability of powder coated goods. The customer gets the benefit of receiving an item that is more valuable because it has a premium quality finish, but costs no more (and sometimes less) than a product with an inferior painted finish. When a shop provides a powder coating service, they often find that the demand is so great that they can succeed on word of mouth alone.
A shop that uses a powder coating system reaps immediate benefits in terms of both raw costs and throughput. Energy costs are reduced, often dramatically. Labor costs are also reduced, largely due to faster coating times and significantly fewer rework issues. Waste disposal costs can also be minimized. But, one of the most compelling arguments for powder coating is the much greater transfer efficiency inherent to the powder coating process. More of the coating material is deposited on the items being coated than with wet painting. The applied cost of the coating media itself is usually much, much lower than with paint. Throughput is often improved because the coating process is easier and faster. Simply put, the powder coating process is significantly more efficient than conventional wet painting.
