Powder Coating: A Post Fabrication Option for Metal Surfaces

When an architect or designer thinks of painted architectural finishes on metal panels, the first thought often goes to fluoropolymer finishes that meet the performance criteria of the FGIA/AAMA finish standards.

Typically, these finishes are coil coated or spray applied PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) or FEVE (fluoroethylene vinyl ether). Depending on the application and specification requirements, there is an alternative finish application method that can be used: Powder Coating. 

While not applicable in all cases, powder coating provides an acceptable alternate application method that can meet all the performance criteria associated to coil coating while covering every exposed surface.
