Powder coating

Powder coating is an environmentally friendly process in which a protective layer of powder is applied to a surface and then cured in an oven without the use of any solvents. The powder coating line used by Van Merksteijn staalcoating B.V. was specifically developed for the fully automated abrasive blasting and powder coating of large structural steel components. The cutting-edge technology used in the system makes it possible to quickly and efficiently apply a protective powder coating to large quantities of steel components while minimizing handling activities and maximizing quality.

The advantages of powder coating compared to the application of liquid paint systems include:
• aesthetic quality
• high level of polish
• easy to clean
• high resistance to scratching, impacts etc.
• practically no damage due to installation/assembly activities
• good coverage of edges and other profiles
• smooth or textured surface
• environmentally friendly
