Imperial Systems has Switched to Powder Coating

Feb 8, 2018

The switch to powder coating is one of the most exciting changes about our move to our new building. With a powder coating booth big enough to accommodate our largest pieces of equipment, we’re prepared to powder coat everything that we produce.

Why the switch to powder coating? There are so many reasons!

  • Going Green

Powder coating is much healthier for people and the environment. Because liquid paint contains solvents and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), it creates many dangerous emissions that can damage the environment and harm people’s health. Powder coating creates almost no pollution, so it’s a much greener process than solvent-based liquid paints. The EPA considers powder coating a much better option for environmental health.

  • Efficiency

It is extremely efficient. Powder is attracted to and adheres to the metal, and powder that doesn’t stick can be collected and reused. Because there are no VOCs produced, a powder coating booth does not require expensive, complicated air cleaning systems to get all the chemicals out of the air. Powder coating is faster and easier than many other processes. Also, the powder coating process isn’t affected as much by temperature and humidity, meaning that it’s easier for us to get products finished and out the door no matter what the weather is like.

  • Durability

Powder coating produces a durable, tough surface that’s resistant to scratches, chips, and rust. It is used on everything from household items to metal equipment that needs to last many years outdoors in all conditions. It will give our equipment a finish that makes it even more weather-resistant than before, and protect it from rust, scratches, and other damage. We are currently the only company in the USA powder coating a round baghouse, so if you want a collector that’s going to stand up to almost anything, ours is the one to go with.

  • Appearance

If you’re looking for an attractive finish, powder coating is definitely one of the best options. Because it coats evenly and doesn’t streak, run, or smear, it produces a smooth and good-looking finish. Items that are powder coated will look better and have a cleaner-looking surface than items painted with liquid paint. We want the appearance of our products to be as good as the performance, so getting a great finish is the perfect finishing touch.
