What is the difference between powder coating and liquid coating? Here we give a simple comparison in performance, application and other aspects.
Choose optimal coating for corrosion protection
We all know that metal items are prone to rust and corrode without a protective coating. In the market, there are numerous types of coatings such as thermoset or thermoplastic coating, powder or liquid coatings. But we may get confused when we are picking up a suitable one. Worst of all, the coating we choose displays various problems as shown below.
Quality: Easy to crack and get scratched?
Adhesion: Prone to be peeled off once damaged?
Health: Do they have effects on our health?
Life: Only a short service life?
Cost: High price but low cost efficiency?
Choose thermoplastic powder as metal protection coating
As a specialist for supplying thermoplastic powders, Kanglian is capable of solving all above problems. Two types of thermoplastic coatings are supplied by our company: Adherest polyethylene powders and Kingdura PVC powders. But some people may exclaim in surprise: "Why thermoplastic powders?" Here we list simple coating comparisons that may help you reevaluate our thermoplastic powders.
In left picture, we can see that thermoplastic powders is composed of long chain molecules; while thermoset powders start with short molecules which are cross linked together during curing process. And these different structures impart different properties to these two powders. Briefly, thermoplastic powders are extremely adhesive to substrate and resistant to corrosion, scratch even impacts. Meanwhile, they are recyclable, that is to say, they can be remolded and reshaped to maximum cost efficiency. In contrast, thermoset powders too rigid to withstand fierce impact, in addition, they are not recyclable.
Powder coatings and liquid coatings in various colors are widely seen in our daily life. Generally, powder coating refers to a type of free-flowing, dry powder that is mainly used to paint metal items to protect them from rust and corrosion. Normally, powder coatings are thicker than conventional liquid type - that is because powder coatings are not easy to run, dip or sag. Meanwhile, powder coatings do not contain solvent so they can be reused if they are not contaminated. In contrast, liquid coatings are unrecoverable and containing solvents, so they may be not as safe as powder coatings.
Why choose Kanglian?
Professional polyethylene powder manufacturer always insists quality is the life of enterprise.
