The APAC region is one of the fastest-growing markets for powder coating, outpacing North American and European markets, which are already saturated. The region boasts a robust construction industry, which accounts for 40 percent of global construction expenditure. The population in these countries is also growing and is making investments in various end-use industries, including automotive, aerospace, and rail. With its high levels of economic growth, the APAC region offers an opportunity for powder coating to grow.
Although it is not the cheapest option, powder coatings offer a number of benefits. Because of their low cost and relatively short lead times, they are often more cost-effective than other types of coatings. They also have a variety of unique physical and mechanical characteristics, which can influence the cost and lead time. Some manufacturers offer custom color options, but they may not be the most cost-effective option for custom, small-batch projects.
The first stage in the powder coating process is pretreatment. This step is used to ensure that the parts have clean surfaces and remove contaminants. Chemical pretreatment is used to clean the parts using an acidic, neutral, or alkaline cleaner. After cleaning, the parts are surface-treated with a transition metal or zinc phosphate product. The subsequent rinse stage separates each step. It is essential to follow the directions of the manufacturer during each step.
