Powder coating is a type of coatings based on polymer resin systems. Powder coating is combined with pigments, leveling agents, flow modifiers, curatives, and other additives. It is made without organic solvents & thus, does not release volatile organic compounds or VOCs in the atmosphere during application. It is used in various automobile applications such as mufflers, door handles, primers, bumpers, engine parts, shock absorbers, windshield wipers and other parts. The key benefits are included improved efficiency, impact resistance, durability, Ultra Violet (UV) ray protection, cost-effectiveness and moisture & chemical resistance.
