Global Powder Coating for Automotive Market is expected to gain a positive traction in the forthcoming period. In automobile domain, the under hood category initially used powder coatings to a vast extent. Initially, there were thin-film epoxy powders used as corrosion-resistant coatings on coil springs which needed a coating that enabled flexibility and protection to the element in an intimidating environment.
Coil springs then needed cleaning and iron-phosphate pre-treatment after which an epoxy powder was electrostatically applied. After this process, these parts unveiled durability and excellency. On missing on any of the parts in the process mentioned, the painted part would prove ineffective and incompetent. Hence, poor corrosion and gross adhesion would normally occur as consequences.
Commercially, powder coating is extensively used as a protective finish to enable resistance to corrosion and chemical. Stamped steel brackets, castings of all kinds and tubings are coated. Optimum adhesion, pre-treatments can vary according to the type of metal. Powder coatings on engine blocks and cylinder heads can also be done to ensure anti-rusting properties. Under commercial process, for automotive exterior parts gloss powder for door handles made of zinc die-castings and a finish was needed enabling attractiveness and would also cover the edges and curves of casting in an economical but durable way.
Driving factors stimulating the Powder Coating for Automotive market growth includes rising preference of auto manufacturers towards powder coatings due to significant cost reductions and other advantages offered by these products. Auto parts for powder coating includes wheels, frames, rims and chassis.
