34. Is It Required To Use A Dedicated Spray Booth For a Manual Powder Coating Machine?
Using a dedicated powder spray booth has got its own advantages.
But, it is not a compulsory requirement.
You can powder coat the parts without using a spray booth also.
A dedicated spray booth allows you to reuse the powder lying in the ground.
The clean environment inside the spray booth allows you to do this.
There will not be any dust particles in the powder collected from the spray booth.
It will help you to reduce power wastage and also help to save some money.
35. Is It Possible To Remove The Powder Coating Done By The Manual Powder Coating Machine?
Yes, it is possible to remove the powder coating.
If it is before the curing stage, you can use a brush to brush off and remove the powder stuck to the part.
If it is after curing, then you need to use solvents that can dissolve the powder to remove the coating.
You must ensure that the solvent does not harm the parts.
36. How To Fix The Faraday Cage Effect in Powder Coating Process Using The Manual Machine?
It is really tough to apply the coating to the internal corners of the part or when it has got odd geometry.
This phenomenon is known as the Faraday cage effect.
The electric field cannot penetrate this area.
To overcome this issue, certain conditions need to be satisfied.
There should be sufficient charge on the powder sprayed from the spray gun.
The airflow from the pump to the gun must be proper.
No excess deposit of powder must happen on the faraday cage areas.
There should not be an additional push for the powder particles to the faraday cage area because of the external electric field.
These are the faraday cage conditions that you need to take care of.
You must have good control over the air pressure and the output voltage.
37. How Long Will The Powder Coating Last?
The powder coating will last for many years without any issues.
The life of the powder coating will depend on many factors like powder quality, quality of the powder coating machine, quality of the powder curing oven, and the operator.
Some parts are used outdoors whereas others indoors.
So, you need to know the use case for your parts.
If the part is used outdoors, then it needs to withstand the sunlight.
So, it is better to apply primer on the surface before powder coating.
Proper cleaning and regular maintenance of the coated parts will help to enhance the life of the parts.
