Powder coating production process, common coating problems and causes
Powder coating is a surface coating technology that is widely used in the industrial field and is favoured for its high efficiency and environmental friendliness.
However, during the production process of powder coating, some coating problems are often encountered, which affect the quality and appearance of the products.
This article will introduce some common coating problems and discuss their possible causes to help you better understand and solve them.
Problem 1: Uneven coating thickness
Uneven coating thickness can be caused by inconsistent spraying distances, fluctuating air pressure, complex workpiece shapes or incorrect gun angles.
- Spraying distance: Control the distance between the spray gun and the workpiece to maintain a consistent spraying distance to ensure uniform coating.
- stable air pressure: adjust the air supply system to maintain a stable air pressure to avoid uneven coating thickness.
- Spraying angle: Adjust the angle of the spray gun to keep it perpendicular to the surface of the workpiece to obtain a uniform coating.
Problem 2: Poor coating adhesion
Poor coating adhesion may be caused by oil, rust, dirt or poor primer application on the surface of the workpiece.
- Surface preparation: Before spraying, make sure the surface of the workpiece is clean and free from oil, rust and dirt to improve coating adhesion.
- Primer application: Use a high quality primer application to ensure adequate adhesion of the coating to the surface of the workpiece.
Problem 3: Blistering or cracking of the coating
Blistering or cracking of the coating may be caused by uneven curing of the coating, high moisture content on the surface of the workpiece, improper primer application or excessive coating thickness.
- Curing Control: Control the curing time and temperature of the coating to ensure that the coating cures uniformly over the entire surface.
- surface humidity: to ensure that the humidity content of the surface of the workpiece is moderate, to avoid blistering or cracking of the coating.
- primer application: Apply the primer evenly to ensure the adhesion between the coating and the surface of the workpiece.
- coating thickness: control the thickness of the coating to avoid blistering or cracking caused by too thick coating.
Problem 4: Colour or gloss inconsistency
colour difference or gloss inconsistency may be caused by uneven powder particles, inconsistent coating thickness, improper curing temperature or coating material quality problems.
- Uniform powder particles: Use uniform powder particles to ensure consistent colour and gloss of the coating.
- Uniformity of coating: Control the thickness of the coating to ensure that the coating is evenly distributed on the surface of the workpiece.
- Curing temperature: Adjust the curing temperature of the coating to ensure the consistency of colour and gloss. 4.
- quality control: select high-quality coating materials to avoid material quality problems resulting in colour or gloss inconsistency.
Problem 5: detail parts coating difficulties
detail parts of the coating difficulties may be due to the spray gun angle is not appropriate, inaccurate control of the coating flow, the shape of the workpiece is complex or obscured and other reasons.
- Spray angle: Adjust the angle of the spray gun to ensure that the details can also be adequately coated.
- Coating flow: Adjust the coating flow according to the needs of the detail parts to ensure uniform coating.
- Preparation of work piece: Before coating, prepare the detail part of the work piece to ensure that the spray gun can be coated smoothly.
