Six common misconceptions about powder coated wood
Although powder coated medium density fiberboard (MDF) has been around for several years, it is still the epitome of an emerging technology. It is common for industry observers to associate wood powder coating with traditional metal powder coating and assume the process will simply translate. Although both techniques involve an electrostatic charge to encourage adhesion, the similarities end quickly.
Wood powder coating continues to evolve, and companies in the industry are learning by experimenting with different approaches to heating, coating, and curing. This advancing state of powder coated MDF has resulted in misconceptions that can be tied to early, inferior powder coated wood products.
