Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. Powder coating comes in thousands of colors and finishes including textured, metallic, high temp and candy colors. Items are pretreated with iron phosphate before powdering. An industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both.
