6 Types of Industrial Powder Coating Materials

  1. Epoxies: Generally easy to use, comes in a variety of colors, and durable.  However, you may not want an epoxy if the items being treated must withstand outdoor weather.
  2. Polyesters: For sensitive items, you could consider polyester as it has a low cure temperature. You can also enjoy greater flexibility and impact resistance from this material. The most significant advantage lies in the selection of colors and gloss levels to give a unique finish to your piece. You don’t want this type of coating for those items that remain outside as it doesn’t weather well.
  3. Super Durable Polyesters: You might consider this the Superman of the polyesters. It has incredible durability, can hold its color for several years, handle humidity, and is corrosion-resistant. It is a fantastic choice for indoor and outdoor applications.
  4. Epoxy-Polyester Hybrids: When you want the best of two worlds, consider a hybrid. They can be mixed in different ratios to enhance the property you prefer. If you need to have an excellent cosmetic look to your piece with some stable, functional properties, this can be a great choice.
  5. Fluoropolymers: The architectural market loves this coating as it withstands the weather amazingly well. To top it off, it also has gorgeous color and gloss retention. You can even get a 20-year warranty for some projects.
  6. Urethanes: This coating is similar to polyesters, except that they use different curing agents. When you choose this option for items like fuel tanks, you get a very smooth finish and have the advantage of good exterior durability. It can be brittle to work with.
