Powder coating technology has been available for almost 50 years. Most coatings are thermosets or thermoplastics with the former comprising the vast majority of powder coating materials. The growth of this technology has been strong over the past few decades and new applications
were developed for both industrial and consumer products.
A key advantage of powder coating is the absence of any solvents and their volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that impact the environment. This environmental advantage opened the way to additional applications.
