Powder coating has revolutionized the way metals are handled. In many industries and even residentially, powder coating gets the gold star. This includes the architectural industry, in which powder coating is becoming a rapid favorite with its many benefits, options, and minimal downsides. Here are the top three reasons why the architectural industry prefers powder coating.
1. Custom Finishes: Color, Metallic, Duotone
In the architectural industry, appearance matters. Unlike other variants of paint, powder coating allows for a wide variant of colors and styles. Unlike most paints, you can have a smoother transition of duotones. Beauty isn’t the only benefit; it can also be used as a labeling system for various parts.
2. Durability and Longevity
The thing that powder coating is most known for is its strength and durability. It lasts up to an additional ten years longer than traditional paints and doesn’t chip, crack, or scuff. For the architectural industry, this is important as it requires less upkeep and provides added strength and durability to the structure.
3. Easy to Transport – Less Energy Wasted
Powder coating, unlike paints, can be transferred to facilities significantly easier as it comes in a light-weight powder form. It requires less energy to get it to and from the desired location. If the desired powder coating facility doesn’t do on-site powder coating, it is still more efficient than paint, as powder coating only adds up to 5% of additional weight. This means that it is still lighter, and more efficient to transport than with traditional paints.
