Color and Coatings

Factors that impact the final color of your product

The color of a coating is affected by the accuracy of the oven temperature and dwell time, the air circulation within that oven, the thickness of the coating, the substrate itself, the thickness or roughness of the substrate, the heat-conductivity of the substrate, and the substrate preparation. All can affect the final appearance and performance of the coating.

Maintaining the accuracy of the color match is substantially more difficult with lighter colors. Most resin binders used are relatively dark and get darker the higher the temperature and the longer the time they remain in an oven. Precise oven dwell time is a major contributor to maintaining color consistency.
