The powder coating process is not fully complete without the use of the powder coating oven.
You must ensure that you use a professional powder coating oven.
The final finish of the parts is fully dependent on the curing oven.
If you have a large number of parts, then you need to choose a large powder coating oven that can cure more parts at a time.
20. What Is The Reason For Cracks In The Powder Coat After Curing
The cracks in the powder coat can happen due to multiple reasons.
If the coating is under cured, then the powder coat will crack.
It is mainly due to lower curing time.
There is a misconception that curing time is the time the part stays in the oven.
It is actually the time for which the part stays at that particular curing temperature.
The cracks can also occur if you use a low-quality powder.
It is a good practice to preheat the oven before loading the parts into the chamber.
21. Can You Share The Various Factors That Can Affect The Lifespan Of The Powder Coating Oven?
The lifespan of the powder curing oven is affected by many factors.
These factors are given below.
21.1 Oven usage
It is a bad practice to put the oven for continuous use.
Long-duration processes in the oven can make the parts of the oven weak.
So, try to give some breathing period in between if you are planning to powder cure a large number of parts.
It will help to increase the life of the curing oven.
21.2 Load in the oven
Never load the oven with more parts than the recommended value.
Always load the curing oven to 80 to 90 percent of its recommended capacity.
It will ensure that the powder coating oven stays healthy all the time.
21.3 Part replacement
When you use the powder curing oven for a long period of time, some of the oven parts will start to fail.
So, you must replace such parts.
All the replacement parts can be purchased from Inovatec machinery.
You must not run the coating oven with bad parts.
The oven may break down during the process.
21.4 Power source
The coating oven will be either using a 110 volt supply or a 220 volt supply.
You must ensure that the power that you feed to the oven is clean.
If there is any fluctuation in power in your area, then it will put the electronic components of the oven at risk.
So, the PCB may fail before its actual life.
So, avoid this failure by feeding a clean power.
21.5 Cleaning of the oven
The oven must be cleaned on a regular basis.
When you are starting the powder curing process, the oven must be clean.
If there are contaminants inside the oven, then they may get stuck with the powder sprayed parts.
Contaminants include water, dirt, oil, and dust.
These contaminants, if present, will get circulated inside the oven with the help of the airflow system in the oven.
So the quality of the final finish will get compromised.
Proper maintenance of the powder coating oven ensures a high lifespan for the oven.
So, you must not skip any of the maintenance work on the oven.
22. What Is The Typical Temperature Range For The Powder Curing Oven?
The powder curing ovens will come in a temperature range of 325 degrees Fahrenheit as the lowest possible temperature and 450 degrees Fahrenheit as the highest possible curing temperature.
Almost all powders will have a curing temperature in between these two temperatures.
23. Which Are The Different Heating Methods Used In A Powder Curing Oven?
When the process of powder spraying is complete on the parts, you need to take it for curing.
Here, the parts are subjected to high temperatures for a particular duration for curing.
There are two different methods used for the curing of the powder sprayed parts.
These methods are given below.
23.1 Direct heating
Certain types of powder curing ovens employ the direct heating technique.
Here, the heat is directly applied don the parts for curing.
Infrared powder curing oven and the electric powder curing oven are some of the examples of ovens that come with direct heating.
Electric ovens come with a heating pipe that gets hot when current is passed through it.
Infrared oven makes use of infrared burners.
23.2 Indirect heating
Indirect heating is the other popular technique used for curing the parts.
Here, the workpieces are subjected to indirect heat.
Gas powdered powder curing oven and the LPG curing oven are some of the examples of the indirect heating ovens.
It will take more time to cure the parts.
The heat will be more evenly distributed in these indirect heating ovens.
24. Can You Share The Difference Between Dwell Time & Oven Cycle Time?
There are three types of time involved in a powder curing process.
They are the dwell time, bring uptime, and oven cycle time.
The time taken for the oven to reach the cure temperature is called the bring-up time.
The temperature at which the powder melts and starts to flow on the part surface is called curing time.
The oven cycle time is the combination of the dwell time and the bring-up time.
The certain oven uses a different technique to reduce the oven cycle time.
They will heat the parts to a slightly higher temperature to reduce the dwell time.
25. How Will I Know If The Powder Coating Is Cured Or Not?
Sometimes, the part may not be cured properly due to many reasons.
There are many ways to check whether your part is cured or not.
If the parts are not cured properly, then they may look brittle.
You can also use UV light for certain powders to check whether it is cured or not.
A color match test is performed on the parts to check if the cured part color matches the sample part color.
This check needs to be done after cooling the parts.
Methyl Ethyl Ketone is also applied on the cured part surface.
If there is a degradation of color, then the part is under cured.
A gloss meter can be used to check the gloss of the final part as the cure finish test.
26. Will The Powder Coating Oven Temperature Affect My Parts?
You must always check and ensure that the curing temperature that you are going to use is not going to affect the mental part.
Usually, it will not cause any harm.
But, it is a good practice to double-check.
27. How To Avoid The Orange Peel Effect During The Curing Process?
If you bring the powder sprayed parts to the curing temperature slowly, then the orange peel effect can happen.
So, you must preheat the oven and place the parts only after it reaches the desired temperature.
If you apply too much powder on the parts, then it may result in the orange peel effect.
So, always ensure to apply the right amount of powder on the parts.
28. What Would Be The Maximum Possible Cure Time That Does Not Cause Any Damages To The Powder?
The curing time varies for different parts.
Large and heavy parts require extra cure time.
Only then a uniform flow of the powder will happen on the part surface.
The workpieces will not get damaged with extended cure times.
They are more prone to damages with higher curing temperatures.
29. How To Prevent The Outgassing Phenomenon During The Curing Process?
The outgassing phenomenon can occur when you use powder coating ovens.
When the trapped gases escape from the curing oven, it is called outgassing.
The issue with the outgassing is that it may result in pinholes on the powder-coated surface.
These pinholes will decrease the life of the powder coating.
The moisture will get trapped in these pinholes.
The outgassing occurs due to many reasons, like when the coating is thick, casting, and contamination of the part surface.
There are different methods that you can employ to remove the outgassing phenomenon.
You can use a primer on the workpiece surface before applying the powder coat.
You should remove all the contaminants from the part surface by proper pre-treatment of parts before the powder coating process.
The Preheating of the workpiece is also helpful to remove all the contaminants from the parts.
The temperature for preheating must be higher than the curing temperature.
Applying a double coat can also solve the issue.
The second coat can be applied if the first coat becomes too thick.
If the powder comes with a good flow characteristic, then the problem of outgassing will not happen.
Here, the powder will stay in the liquid for more time during the curing procedure.
Inovatec machinery provides the customer with many choices for powder coating ovens.
So, you can easily select the curing oven according to your requirements
