Powder

How it works: It is applied via electrostatic spray, which creates an attraction between the powder and the substrate to be coated. The part is then heated, melting the powder and fusing it to the surface.

Uses

Applications for which excessive overspray is unavoidable, such as grill grates and gadgets. Advantages

Improved transfer efficiency: 25-50% less coating is lost compared to air/liquid spray. Coating overspray can be reclaimed if cleanliness standards are maintained. Disadvantages

Problem penetrating deep recesses.
