POWDER COATING VS. SPRAY PAINT
Powder coating is a type of coating technique that is found and spread all over the world within past few decades. Powder coating process is done electrostatically by spraying dry powder to the mill finish product without using any catalyst, whereas liquid painting requires solvent or water as a catalyst. Moreover, unlike liquid painting, powder coating finish has no sagging mark.
Advantages of using powder coating:
- A uniform thick coating is produced
- Increase anti-corrosion/weather resistance.
- Available in wide variety of colors.
- It is more durable
- Environmentally friendly and virtually pollution free.
Although powder coating has many advantages, it also has disadvantages as well, including:
- Hard to achieve thin coating layers
- Costs are high
- Difficult to touch up
- Requires longer production time
Airless Spray Painting
Spray painting is a painting technique where a device sprays a coating (paint, ink, varnish, etc.) through the air onto a surface. The most common types employ compressed gas—usually air—to atomize and direct the paint particles. Spray guns evolved from airbrushes, and the two are usually distinguished by their size and the size of the spray pattern they produce. Airbrushes are hand-held and used instead of a brush for detailed work such as photo retouching, painting nails or fine art. Air gun spraying uses equipment that is generally larger. It is typically used for covering large surfaces with an even coating of liquid. Spray guns can be either automated or hand-held and have interchangeable heads to allow for different spray patterns.
Advantages of using spray painting:
- A uniform thin coating is produced
- Costs are cheaper
- Available in a wide variety of colors
- Easier to touch up
- Faster production time
Although spray painting has many advantages, it also has disadvantages as well, including:
- Hard to achieve thick coating layers
- Easily get scratch but easily touch up
