Powder Coat VS Paint

Powder Coat VS Paint

POWDER COAT VS PAINT

FIRST IMPRESSION

First off, powder coating provides better performance than paint—it's more resistant to chipping, scratching, and other wear abuse because of the thermal bonding it undergoes during the curing process, and because it can be applied in much thicker layers than paint. In addition to its physical toughness, powder coating provides superior color retention & last much longer than paint. 

COLOR  

One area in which paint has a small advantage is in color variety. There are endless color options to choose from when you select paint over powder, giving you more flexibility for how things look and making it easier to match different objects. However, this argument all comes down to consumer preference, many customers prefer powder coating colors over paint due to its finish & long lasting durability. 

SAFTEY 

In terms of safety and health risks, powder coating is considered the safer option for multiple reasons. First, powder coatings do not contain any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), however wet paints do. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, organic VOCs in paint may cause “eye, nose and throat irritation; Headaches, loss of coordination and nausea; Damage to liver, kidney and central nervous system; and some organics can cause cancer in animals, some are suspected or known to cause cancer in humans.”

There is also the matter of storage. Wet paint can be more difficult to store because it is highly flammable. Powder coating is non flammable, so it does not pose a risk of a chemical fire. 

COST DIFFERENCE 

One other advantage paint has over powder coating is the low cost. Realistically, paint is as cheap as paint in a can. However, like everyone says, "you get what you pay for". This saying is very true, paint can get the job done for the moment, but can not come close to the durability and longevity powder costing can provide.
