Powder Coating Tips

When the powder coating on the object is too thick, an uneven surface is created.If the coating thickness cannot be reduced, the use of a SuperCorona® ring will effectively prevent the formation of the “orange peel effect”. See also Back ionizer.
The use of silicon in the coating area is often the cause of a bad coating finish.Because all powders react “allergically” to silicon, it must never be used in the coating area.
Workpieces grounded insufficiently.Clean the hangers and hooks.
Powder resistance too low.Contact your powder manufacturer.
Poor grain size distribution.Contact your powder manufacturer.
Field strength too high.Change the current, and gun to object distance.
Powder is blown out of the corners and cavities by too much air pressure.Reduce the Total air pressure.
Too little penetration in the corners and cavities caused by too high current or using of the wrong nozzles.Reduce the current and use more suitable nozzles.
See also Nozzles.
Poor pre-treatment.Contact the supplier.
Wrong oven settings (too high, too low, curing time too long).Improve the oven settings.
Unsatisfactory powder quality.Contact the Powder supplier.
Change the powder.
A too rapid stroke movement can break up the powder cloud.The stroke speed should not exceed 0.6 m/s - values between 0.2 - 0.4 m/s are recommended.
Grain distribution too fine.Contact the powder manufacturer.
Humidity in the powder due to incorrect storage.The powder must be dry and stored at the working temperature.
Sintering in the nozzles caused by a too high Total air pressure.Reduce the Total air pressure to 4 – 5 Nm3/h.
Poor fluidization in the powder container caused by humid compressed air or a clogged fluidizing plate.Check the compressed air for cleanliness, replace the fluidizing
The so-called back ionization is created when the powder coating is too thick.Reducing the high-voltage prevents back ionization; this however, results in a reduction of the powder transfer rate. Back ionization formation is also dependent on the temperature, and relative humidity. With very difficult powders air-conditioning of the coating area may be necessary. See also “Orange peel”.
When powder suddenly escapes from a well set up booth, and the pressure monitoring of the exhaust system displays normal values, then the fault is usually to be found in the booth surroundings.The most frequent cause is draughts from open doors or windows in the workshop (even far away from the booth).
Unsatisfactory sieve machine.When a smaller mesh is not sufficient, fitting a sieve machine
with automatic contamination removal should be considered.
When the chain conveyer is not cleaned regularly or unsuitable grease/oil is used.Clean regularly, and when necessary, fit a hood.
When powder is blown into the oven.Check the workshop for air currents.
Powder residue in the oven.This can be prevented by regular cleaning.
Poorly cleaned recovery system.Clean regularly.
When dirty air is sucked into the booth or the oven.Under certain conditions the coating plant must be separated
from the production areas.
When a number of booths are operated together, it can happen that cleaning is influenced.In this case the booths must be separated further away from
each another.
Fluidization of the powder has a great influence on the coating quality.In addition, with difficult powders we recommend to add a vibration
of the powder hopper. Retrofitting a pneumatic or electric vibrating
table is simple.
Lumps appear in the fluidized powder, if the powder is stored too long or came into contact with temperatures over 35° C (95° F).Use new powder and check the storage conditions of the powder.
Poor fluidization of the powder can be caused by the fluidizing air being set too low.Check the fluidizing air setting.
