When finishing a heat-sensitive substrate, all types of heat technologies must be considered. Powder coating for these applications requires an investment in process design to ensure a good outcome, and the answer is seldom based on an engineering chart. For the best outcome, the business as well as operational needs need to be considered.

While CARC powder coatings have been approved for some time, until now powder has made up only a tiny fraction of overall CARC use.
