Contrary to liquid coatings, powder coatings are processed as solids making them an environment friendly alternative to solvent based paint. They are melted in the baking oven to form films & also have shown to possess significant durability and resistance to abrasion, corrosion, scratching, and chemicals. They don't need solvent to keep binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. Powder coatings, which can either be applied by electrostatic spray or by fluidized-bed powder coating, can be used in a wide range of applications such as automotive, building & construction, electronics, etc.
