Powder Coat: A Green Technology
Powder coat is an environmentally friendly process. The powder is not a significant health, fire, or environmental hazard (in dry form it is called a “nuisance dust” because it makes a dusty mess if spilled). As a comparison, wet paint is flammable, carcinogenic, and full of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Because powder coat is applied in dry form electrostatically, transfer efficiencies over 90% can be achieved to minimize waste. In special cases, powder that doesn’t end up on the parts can even be reclaimed and reused. As a comparison, wet paint transfer efficiencies can easily drop below 50%, and overshoot goes right into the environment.
