Curing counts when it comes to powder-coat performance
A powder coating's performance depends on two conditions: proper cure and proper surface preparation.
While both conditions are important in the development of coating performance, proper curing is necessary not only in performance but also in the development of the physical properties formulated into the coating itself. This article explains how a powder coating cures and how curing affects the formation of a powder coating's physical properties and subsequent performance. The discussion focuses on thermoset powder coatings.
