Importance of Using Eco-Friendly Powder Paint


Nobody can deny the importance of caring for our environment and every single thing we can do in terms of advantages for our earth makes a difference, even if it seems small. This includes paint. Powder coating is a green technology that emits less harmful pollutants than traditional paint. When compared to painting, powder coatings reduce emissions and output on finishing lines.¬†Powder coating¬†doesn’t generate the same hazardous solvents as wet paints either–making it an environmentally friendly alternative for manufacturers who want their products finished in style without damaging our planet at the same time.

  • Compared to conventional paint, powder coating is a much cleaner process. There are no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) released into the air and because of this, it has a less negative impact on ozone levels in our atmosphere as well as potential indoor environments where people live or work. Wet paint is more difficult to correct, and often reworks require solvents. These chemicals can create harmful fumes and used paints are considered hazardous waste too; they must be disposed of properly when stripped off or discarded from brushes.
  • Although powder coating is known for its non-toxic and inert properties, it also meets or exceeds many national environmental protection standards. This process can be recycled when excess spray from the two-step method is reclaimed. The equipment costs are driven up with multiple color changes but this works well when only one or two colors are used in your products since you save on material cost as compared to liquid coatings that use expensive resins like acrylics which must account for their high VOC emission rates (Volatile Organic Compounds).
