Finishing medium-density fiberboard with powder coatings
Powder coatings aren't just for metal surfaces anymore. Although they continue to make a fine surface finish for lawn furniture and bird feeders, powder coatings are cropping up indoors as well, not just on appliances, but also on kitchen and bathroom cabinets and perhaps even in the den, where people place their home office furniture.
That's because powder coatings are now branching out into medium-density fiberboard [MDF] applications. This article explains why powder coatings have become more commonplace in such markets as office and kitchen furniture. The article provides information about pow-der application on MDF surfaces as well as coating selec-tion. It provides details about the finished product and uses a number of tables to illustrate results of various tests with powder-coated MDF.
