Question: I notice that we have some pieces of metals that have been "powder coated", how does that work?
Keywords: powder,coatings
Answer: Powder coatings are similar to paint, but they are usually much more durable. Rather than adding a solvent to the pigments and resins in paint as is typically the case, powder coatings are applied to the surface in a fine granular form. They are typically sprayed on so that they stick to the surface. Once the surface has been sufficiently spray coated, the piece is baked at high temperatures and the pigment and resins pieces melt and form a durable, color layer.
