Industry Boosted by Favorable Economics

In the last 10 years a number of advancements have helped reduce the cost of powder coating. In particular, powder coating uses less energy that liquid coating—in some cases saving close to 50%. Further, the line process used in powder coating requires minimum operator intervention, and parts can now be racked more closely together on the conveyor, a benefit which allows items to pass through the production line more quickly. With recovery procedures, the powder utilization rate often reaches 98%.
