Application of metallic and other specialty powder coatings

Special effect powder coatings include metallics, dimple/hammer textures, hammertone textures, vein textures, and wrinkle finishes. Each of these special effects requires extra training for applicators to get the coating to look its best. This article describes each type of special effect to assist you in application and to troubleshoot a problem.

Specialty finishes are used widely in the marketplace because they offer an appearance property beyond that of a standard finish. Consumer products that have these specialty finishes set themselves apart from the competition in that they grab the consumer’s attention. The products themselves are perceived to be of higher quality than other types of products as a direct result of the specialty coating. Not so fast though. Before you decide to start using these finishes, you need to consider several factors. With these specialty finishes come unique application problems that you may not face with standard coatings. In this article, we describe metallics, dimple/hammer textures, hammertone textures, vein textures, and wrinkles, and address some of the problems you are likely to face with each of them.
