The process used for powder coating eliminates many problems found with liquid paint processes. There is negligible, if any emission of volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Liquid painting requires solvents, and these solvents require proper venting and recovery systems to control the emissions. The exhaust air from the powder booths is recycled to the booth, and less oven air is exhausted to the outside, this makes Powder Coating a safer and cleaner finishing alternative. Since it is a dry powder excess powder can be reclaimed (up to 98%) during the process into the recovery systems. All the reclaimed powder can then be reused, the minimal waste produced can easily, safely and economically be disposed of. The end result is that powder coating is far more superior in terms of aesthetics, corrosion protection, chip and impact resistance, and environmentally friendly.
