Reasons to Powder Coat Your Garden Equipment

by Benjamin Rice

Powder coating is the process used to electrostatically apply pigment onto a surface. This process is a great alternative to painting metallic surfaces as it is not simply aesthetics, but also is quite functional too. Although powder coating is common in manufacturing and processing industries, it can also be used for residential applications. If you have garden equipment that has started looking worse for wear and you would like to give them a facelift, you could consider powder coating. Numerous items can undergo this proces,s such as spades, lawn mowers, trowels and more. The following are some of the reasons why you should consider powder coating your garden equipment.

Powder coating prevents wastage

When considering a coating process, such as painting or powder coating, one factor most people neglect to consider is the transfer efficiency of the option they choose. Although painting is one of the more conventional alternatives, it has quite a low transfer efficiency. This means there is a lot of wastage that occurs in the form of overspray or dripping of the paint, which cannot be recovered. Powder coating has a high transfer efficiency, as it immediately adheres to the surface that it is being coated on.

In addition to this, since powder coating is in solid form, any overspray that occurs can easily be collected and reused for other applications. If you are looking to be economical when painting your garden equipment, powder coating would be an ideal option.

Powder coating is safe and eco-friendly

Another reason why you should consider powder coating for the metallic surfaces of your garden equipment is because it is one of the safest and most eco-friendly coating alternatives that you could choose. Powder coating does not contain harmful chemicals such as paint does. For paint to be ready for use, it needs to be mixed with solvents. These solvents come with an array of toxins such as volatile organic compounds and other chemicals. When the paint is applied, the operator stands the risk of inhaling these toxins as the toxins are released into the environment. Large scale painting projects can prove to be quite harmful to anyone in close proximity as well as the environment as a whole.

Since powder coating does not utilise these solvents, it is a much more safe and eco-friendly alternative. All you would have to be concerned about is ensuring you do not inhale the solid particles of the powder as you are engaging in the coating process.
