Powder Coating uses very fine dry particles of resin with the pigment color of your choice. The resin powder is applied with a spray gun similar in concept to applying solvent based paint. The difference is this spray gun and it's resin contents are electrostatically charged.
When the resin powder is sprayed onto a part it sticks to the metal because it's grounded, attracting charged resin powder like a magnet. The job is then placed in the oven and baked at 200 deg C for 10 minutes. It is cured by the time it cools down and can be taken away to be used.
Our powder coating division has been in operation for 15 years and we went into it because the lack of a quality being supplied by the only powdercoater in Warrnambool. Because we had the abrasive blasting division, we were often asked if we could remove a failed powder coated job, this proved to be a costly process for the customer and quite often we would charge less that it would cost us to do. This could not keep happening so we bought a second hand set up off Bundaberg Lace Company in North Queensland. After shipping it to our factory and installing it we then had some very costly telephone calls to Jim at Bundy Lace. These calls weren’t just calls, Jim was teaching us how to powder coat by phone. The division has progressively expanded and now occupies 350m2 of our factory.
