For today's powder coatings, toughness comes in almost any color—Part I

This article is the first in a two-part series about the growing spectrum of powder coatings available today. Its aim is to dispel the misconception among many coaters that an extensive variety of colors aren't available in powder coatings.

It explains how market trends determine powder coating colors and why coaters are switching from liquid to powder for its physical characteristics as well as its environmental safety. The article then describes powder color availability, including metallics and chromes, and discusses pigment heat-stability. The article also includes an overview of the manufacturing process, explaining what processing elements affect color dispersion and how quality control affects batch-to-batch consistency.
