Powder coating touch ups in the field? Yes, we can!

As powder coaters, we often work hard to distinguish ourselves from the world of liquid coatings from which we have evolved. We all know the advantages that powder has over liquid. Our environmentally sustainable, lower-applied-cost, more-durable coating system works well when applied properly and will outlast most commonly used liquid systems. Until it gets damaged in the field — then we have a problem. This is where we as powder coaters need to develop an understanding and appreciation for how liquid coatings can bring benefits to powder coating.

"There is no way to touch up powder coating in the field." When out working to build up our client base, we often hear the above statement as a complaint and reason not to use powder coating on a project. While it is true that you cannot bring an infrared or convection oven to the affected site and reapply powder, you can still touch up a damaged coating with a liquid system. This is an opportunity for the custom coater to educate and improve their standing with the concerned customer.
