Powder coating finishes are applied electrostatically and cured under heat so it acts like an armor. It is more resistant to impact, moisture, corrosion, chemicals and ultraviolet light. It is less susceptible to scratches, abrasions, chipping and general wear and tear and it creates a durable finish that is substantially stronger than conventional paint. Powder coating is a solvent-free, environmentally friendly finish that virtually eliminates air and water pollution because it releases no VOCs ( volatile organic compounds ) into the atmosphere, which makes it safer for applicators and the environment. It is one of the least expensive paint finishes available today and available in a wide range of colors.
