What are the benefits of powder coating?

If you’re thinking about investing in powder coating for your business, this guide might help you decide whether the process is right for you or not. Our experts shine a light on the purpose of powder coating, how the process works and its many economic and environmental benefits. Take a look!

What is powder coating?

Powder coating is a type of paint coating that is applied as a dry powder, delivered by an evaporating solvent. There are many benefits to powder coating over conventional spray-painting methods.

The powder coating process

Put simply, powder coating is used to apply a protective finish to any type of metal objects. Powder coating is made from pigment and resin particles are often applied using an electrostatic gun. These particles are electrostatically charged onto the surface, creating a strong and aesthetically pleasing finish.

The benefits of powder coating


Powder coating creates a hard finish that is considered much tougher than conventional paint. As powder coating involves applying dry powder, each coat is much thicker and does not run like a liquid coating might.

The powder coating process will leave surfaces resistant to any wear and tear such as chipping, fading or scratching. This is particularly beneficial for any surfaces or parts that might be exposed to corrosive materials, such as cars, planes or tractors, as powder coating provides excellent outdoor durability.

Economic viability

Whatever industry you’re in, powder coating is one of the most economical ways to paint surfaces. If you implement a complete powder coating process with the help of Junair Spraybooths, powder coating can often be cheaper than other painting methods in the long-term.

Powder coating also leaves zero waste when painting objects of the same colours. This is due to its powder recovery techniques in which any excess spray is caught by the spray booth and can be used again.

Environmentally friendly

Economical benefits aside, powder coating is also environmentally friendly! Here at Junair, our powder coating equipment is ideal for companies looking to improve their energy efficiency as powder coating contains no solvents, releasing few (if any) Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere.
