Why Fluidization instead of powder coating?


Why Fluidization Instead of Powder Coating?

Fluidization - Application

Fluidization process vs. Powder coating

Powder coating involves applying powdered paint to a surface, usually metal, using an electrostatic field. The main advantage of powder coating is its efficiency and ease of application, resulting in a thin, smooth layer of paint. Therefore, powder coating requires precision.

Smooth Coating of the Surface

With fluidization-based painting, regardless of the substrate’s roughness, we achieve a glossy, smooth, and highly aesthetic surface. This isn’t always the case with powder paints. Preparing the surface for powder coating is time-consuming, and the surface must be nearly perfect. Often, the smallest mistakes, like incorrect temperature setting, improper paint mixing, or inadequate surface cleaning, lead to chipping or unevenness.

Protection Against External Damage

What truly sets these two methods apart, and how do you choose the better one? Powder coating doesn’t provide as resistant a coating in terms of corrosion protection. Cracking, dulling, or roughness of the coating are common issues. An example could be shelves used in gastronomy. Powder coating results in a coating that easily chips off the material, and air bubbles might appear, especially if an item is placed abruptly. In such cases, a fluidization-based coating performs better, exhibiting plastic-like properties in all aspects. These could be metal skeleton shelves, yet with properties similar to plastic ones.

Coating Thickness

Fluidization-based painting technology offers coating thickness ranging from 0.25 mm to 1 mm, which ensures high coating flexibility, durability, and protection against scratches. Meanwhile, powder coating only provides the possibility of thinly covering steel elements. Thinner coatings, unfortunately, are less resistant to atmospheric conditions.

Use of Powder Paint

The utilization of powder paint in these two processes is also distinct. Powder paints are sprayed during powder coating, while during fluidization, the entire product is immersed at once, resulting in uniform coating thickness. The powder perfectly melds with the material during the fluidization process.
