Powder coating

Powder coating comes in two variants:

  • Thermo curing
  • Thermo plastic

Both have their advantages and their different ways of being applied as well as heat treated after application. We have a wide experience with both systems.

Thermo curing

Thermo curing is most often electrostatically applied by spraying in a booth provided with a recovery system with cyclone or with filter only. Often the booth system used is a fast colour change system.

After application the powder is cured in an oven either infrared or convection or a combination, at approximately 80-220 oC.

Thermo plastic

Thermo plastic powders (like e.g. nylon) are wide applied by dipping (sintering) in a fluidized powder hopper. 

The products are then preheated to 200-300 oC and dipped into the powder.
Often no further process is needed.

This process is used when the products have a need for a thicker layer or when the products have a complex interior geometry.

 

ideal-line can supply complete systems including booth - cyclones - filter - reciprocator.

We have a high level of expertise in the management of finishing line projects. This makes us the preferred choice for many suppliers and we therefore have a strong network of partners in the industry.    

We can deliver the complete application system from one of our partners, when our customer has this as a preference, or when the more advanced systems are needed, like fast colour changes - very advanced control systems for reciprocators and guns etc.

In case a more technical and basic system is requested, and a more moderate investment is the preference, we can offer our own production of booth - recovery system, and we then buy the guns from one of our partners.

In both cases we will make the choice in a close discussion with our customer.
