Liquid paint can deliver a coating thickness of 1-2 mils.
But a powder coat is around 3-4 mils thick generally.
So, a thicker coat can be provided by a powder coat.
Hence the life of the coating will be more for a powder coating process than a wet painting process.
A high pressure process is used to spray the wet paint on the parts.
It will result in the deposition of excess wet paint on the surface of the part.
So, this excess paint will start to drip and sag.
So, some amount of wet paint is wasted during this process.
Low pressure is applied to the powder particles in the powder coating cup gun.
The gun gives a positive charge to the powder particles.
The parts to be coated are grounded.
So, the oppositely charged powder and the part will get attracted to each other and the powder will settle on the part surface.
The excess powder falling on the ground can be used if the ground is perfectly clean and dry.
You can use a powder spray booth for this process.
Thus, there is no material wastage.
The liquid painting process releases harmful gases to the environment because of the presence of volatile organic compounds.
The powder coating process does not release any harmful gases into the atmosphere.
It is an environment friendly process.
13. Can You Explain The Working Of The Powder Coating Cup Gun?
The powder coating cup gun makes use of the principle of electrostatic charge for the coating process.
Here, the powder gets pushed to the spray gun from the cup.
These powder particles attain a positive charge from the spray gun.
You need to set the appropriate voltage and current parameters for the coating gun.
It will decide the amount of charge.
This charged particle will get pushed outside with the help of compressed air.
You must ensure that the air compressor receives filtered air that is well below the specified level of contamination.
The nozzle in front of the spray gun decides the spray pattern.
A fog of positively charged particles will be created around the part surface.
The part for coating is grounded.
So, it will attract the positively charged powder particles.
The powder coating cup gun will ensure that a uniform and consistent coating is formed on the part surface.
The extra powder will get settled in the ground.
You can reuse this powder if you carry out this procedure inside a dedicated powder spray booth.
This is the working of the powder coating cup gun during a powder coating process.
