Liquid paint is the dominant technology – and until recently was the only alternative. In the last 50 years though, another technology emerged: powder coat.
The use of powder coating offers a range of advantages over liquid paint and has become the preferred choice whenever possible.
Powder coating however has inherent limitations due to its nature. It works by spraying the powder to electric charged surface, therefore requires such surface to be conductive. It has therefore for a long time been limited to metal support. Recently certain technologies have allowed the usage of powder coating on certain substrates of wood.
These technologies (UV, Low Temperature Thermo) however only work with medium density fibreboards (MDF) and cannot be applied to natural wood, plywood or particle board.
Our technology (“UPC”) has now been developed which is not subject to these limitations and offers additional advantages.
