Fluidized powder is a technology within the plastic coating industry that has been available for more than 50 years; however many are unfamiliar with the process and benefits. If you’re wondering whether you should use this method for your next project, here are four reasons why it’s a great idea:
No Tooling Cost
The fluidized powder requires only a dip method to completely cover whatever part you want to cover with plastic: so, there won’t be expensive tooling costs for your project. Whether you want to do 1,000 bulk pieces, or only a few items, the cost benefit of fluidized bed powder will be great for your bottom line.
Complete Part Coverage
Fluidized powder also ensures that you’ll get 100% part coverage: the powder will get into every nook and cranny on your product, which means it’s great for covering wire products. There won’t be complicated tooling methods involved in the process: all you have to do is carefully preheat the fluid bed powder coated part in a conveyor oven, dip it into the fluidized bed, reheat it to make the powder fuse out and cool it to room temperature.
Customers today often demand higher quality and durability from the products they buy. The finished product is extremely durable and it’s one of the top plastic seals on the market. The only difference is the powder method that’s used to apply it to the items.
Resistant to Corrosion
Thanks to its 100% coverage, even in the smallest part of your product, the plastic coating enables the underlying metal to resist corrosion.
