Advantages of powder coating include thicker coatings without running or sagging, faster production cycles, and much lower emissions of volatile organic compounds. In most cases, key elements of powder paint systems are natural gas-fired convection ovens, or gas-fired catalytic infrared systems. The use of powder coatings for product finishing is expanding into new markets. These finishes are expanding from metallic products only to other surfaces, notably medium-density fiberboard (MDF).
