Environmental Impact

In addition to being the more durable and attractive choice, powder coating is also highly protective of our environment.

Negligible VOCs and HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) Free

Powder coatings contain no solvents and therefore emit negligible, if any, polluting VOCs into the atmosphere. Less Exhaust   Powder coating is a clean process, allowing exhaust air from the coating booth to be returned to the plant, and less oven air is exhausted to the outside. Heating and cooling costs are eliminated for make-up air and the cost for maintaining oven temperatures is minimized.  

Reusable Overspray

Powder overspray can be retrieved and reused.

No Costly Waste Disposal Equipment

Unused powder can be reclaimed and returned to a hopper for recirculation through the system, with negligible waste.
