The Process of Electrostatic Powder Coating



1998

Could you please forward to me detailed info on the process involved with Electrostatic Powder Coating

Hi, cousin Slevin. We can give you very general info here: the parts must be cleaned, phosphated (if steel) or chromated (if aluminum), dried, electrostatic sprayed with the powder (which can be either thermoset or thermoplastic), and baked to fuse the powder into a plastic coating. For a little more on the subject, please see our on-line article by Mario Pennisi. But this is a subject that fills whole libraries, so "detailed info" will surely require a book. The Chemical Coaters Association International offers an inexpensive and very good softcover text that introduces the subject. There are also several books on the subject available here. Good luck!

Fundamentals of Powder Coating

1998

A very good general overall information book is "Fundamentals of Powder Coating" It is available through the Society of manufacturing Engineers.

The book has had several reprints and if it is not available SME has other similar publications available.

On top of those nice recommendations, I would also recommend PCI [The Powder Coating Institute], the industry association charged with the advancement of powder coating technology in the marketplace.
