A type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.

The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. It is used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

There are a wide variety of colors and finishes available.
