Powder coating is a delicate process, and applying just the right amount of coating is key to creating a smooth and beautiful finish. The ability to masterfully apply powder coating is dependent on both the painter’s skill and the equipment he uses. Skills can be learned through experience, yet painters will still need to acquire superior powder coating supplies in order to produce quality paintjobs.
To powder coat an object, painters will first need to sand the objects to be painted. Sanding off old paint allows the new layer to better adhere to the surface of the item to be coated. Next, painters use a specialty powder coating gun to apply powder paint. The device operates very differently from spray guns in that the coating gun electrostatically charges the powder, enabling it to cling to the object upon dispensing.
