After completing the curing process, you can take all the small parts outside.

It is ok to keep the parts for couple more minutes inside the oven for curing,

You must allow the small parts to rest to ensure that the curing is fully complete.

 

27. What Are The Possible Reasons For Cracks In The Powder Coat After The Curing Process?

KL-1732 Electric Powder Coating Batch Oven

There can be cracks in the powder-cured parts after the curing process.

These cracks are undesirable and hence should be avoided.

The productivity of the whole curing process is affected by these cracks.

The cracks happen on the parts due to many reasons.

These reasons are given below.

If the curing temperature inside the oven is not stable, then cracks can occur.

A professional oven will ensure that the temperature inside is always stable.

So, always invest in high-quality ovens.

The benchtop powder coating oven from Inovatec machinery is of very high quality.

If you set a lower temperature for curing the parts, then also cracks can occur.

It will result in lowering the actual curing time.

A cheap quality coating powder will also result in cracks.

So, always invest in high-quality powder for coating.

 

28. Are There Any Methods To Prevent The Outgassing Phenomenon During The Curing Process In A Benchtop Powder Curing Oven?

Outgassing occurs when the gas escapes from the oven during the curing process.

It is an unwanted phenomenon, and it should be avoided.

It will result in the creation of tiny holes in the powder coat.

These tiny holes will trap the water molecules present in the environment.

Thus, it will affect the life of the powder-coated part.

If the small parts have contaminants on the surface during the powder spraying process, then it will cause the outgassing phenomenon.

So, the parts must be perfectly clean before the powder coating process.

So, surface preparation is essential for parts that are not clean.

Wet blasting is one of the popular processes for cleaning the parts.

You can use the sandblasting machine from Inovatec machinery to clean the workpieces.

Applying a prime coat on top of the part surface before the powder spray process is another good option.

The primer coat helps to strengthen the bonding of the workpiece with the coating powder.

If your coating is very thick, then also the outgassing can occur.

So, make sure that the coating is not too thick.

When you powder spray the part, use the correct settings for voltage and current.

If your part design demands a thick coat, then give multiple thin coats.

Using cheap coating powders will also cause the outgassing phenomenon.

It is due to the poor quality flow profile of these powders.

So, always use high-quality coating powders to avoid this issue.

 

29. Are There Any Safety Issues With The Benchtop Powder Coating Oven From Inovatec Machinery?
