Growing in market penetration

Powder paint systems were introduced more than 30 years ago. Since then, a growing number of product manufacturers have taken the step away from spraying liquid paint. Liquid has inherent challenges, including the need for very expert application in order to get a uniform coating without sagging or thin spots. Another is the ever-tightening requirements to reduce and capture volatile organic compound emissions from solvent carriers to comply with strict VOC air emission and occupational health rules.
