What is the difference between powder coating and enamel coating? Or they are just the same?Angus Chow

The term 'powder coating' has to do with how the coating is actually applied (as a powder, then melted--as opposed to a liquid). I don't believe that enamel has a rigorous definition, but it means a hard, glossy coating. So some enamels might be powder coated and some are not, some powder coatings might be enamels and some are not.
