When I began my career in the powder coating industry back in the late 1970s, there were about 20 powder coating producers in North America. Most had non-paint producing traditions, companies like Ferro, H.B. Fuller, Armstrong, Polymer, Celanese, Farboil, Dexter and Mobil. Of course, there was a smattering of true paint companies, such as SherwinWilliams, DuPont and Glidden, the place where I started my coatings career odyssey. Soon thereafter Sherwin and DuPont got out of the powder business, leaving Glidden as the only sizable paint maker in the fold at this juncture.

Producing a powder coating is a multi-step process. It can be described as being semi-continuous because it begins as a batch process (weighing and pre-mixing) but evolves into a continuous process (extrusion and milling). In the last Technology Interchange article, we discussed the first steps in manufacturing a powder coating. This consists of weighing, premixing and extrusion. This edition covers what happens to the flakes generated from the extrusion process.

Producing a powder coating is a multi-step process. It can be described as semicontinuous because it begins as a batch process (weighing and premixing) but evolves into a continuous process (extrusion and milling). The exciting part of the manufacturing process is taking the abstract concept of the art of powder formulating and making it real and tangible. All the creativity and technology that has been infused into a formula becomes a reality. This Technology Interchange describes the first part of manufacturing powder coatings, namely weigh-up, premixing wand extrusion.

Just like Indiana is the hub for several major Interstate highways to crisscross, so, too, was the CC Forum a place for custom coaters to cross paths and learn from one another, taking with them valuable knowledge on their own highways to success. This year’s Custom Coater Forum was held March 30-31 in downtown Indianapolis. The opening evening began with a dinner at a local famous family-style restaurant, where PCI custom coater members enjoyed a great night of networking, good food, and the keynote speaker for the event.
