Intro to Powder Coating for Material Science Class


Q. I would like some "introductory" information about Powder Coating. I am in a material science course in college and I think that it might make an interesting topic for the class. If you have any, or a lot, of information,

Thank you for your time.

Q. Hello, we are Bart and Ruben, students from the painting school in the Netherlands. We must make a study project about powder coatings.

We will try to reuse acrylaat paint to make powder coatings. As the paint layer is dry we make powder of it. After we powder some research panels, we are going to test the paint layer.

We would ask of you can you give us a lot of information about powder coatings (about the particle size and more of that stuff)?

Greetings Ruben and Bart

A. What sort of info do you need?

Probably a good idea to contact a supplier of powder or a supplier of powder booths

Powder: Morton International
Booth Suppliers: Nordson Corporation

I'm quite sure that both have web pages. -- and both will have info on the basics of powder coating.
