6/2/2016

One of the specialized services that we offer at Innovative Coatings Inc. is fluid bed powder coating for a variety of products. Using fluid bed powder coating is a great way to provide thin and even coating on an irregular object or surface. In the end, this makes the product much more durable and adds to its functionality. This type of coating is a great finishing touch for many products in a wide range of industries, but let’s look at just a couple examples so that you can see how beneficial fluid bed powder coating is in real world applications.

What many people do not realize is the fluid bed powder coating can be mixed in a variety of ways to create coatings of nylon, vinyl, polyolefin and epoxy. Not only that, but it can be applied to metals like steel, brass, lead, aluminum and even copper. What results is a versatile method that can be used for a whole host of industrial and commercial products.

A fluid bed powder coating of nylon is frequently used to protect trampoline springs. Not only does the coating smooth the surface so that it is less likely to harm people when they come into contact with it, but it also preserves the underlying metal from rust. This is important because most trampolines are left outside for long periods of time, and rust or corrosion in the springs could make the trampoline unsafe for bouncing.

PVC and polyethylene powder coatings are commonly used to add a layer of protection to household appliances like washers and dryers. This economical coating method covers edges, creates a smooth finish and protects the body of the appliance from corrosion. The powder coating adheres excellently to the metal, leaving little concern about chipping or cracking the finish later on.

These are just a couple of a the many ways that the fluid bed powder coating technique can be used to apply a final coat to products.
