How to Ensure Successful Powder Coating

Powder coating process is a simple coating technique which is applied directly (powder) to the object. It has some dissimilarity with the conventional liquid paint method since powder coating is done electro statically and then it is cured underneath heat in the process of forming the “skin”. The powder used in the coating process normally…
