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.

This edition of Technology Interchange will take you on a journey, exploring how our industry began and the path it took to the present day. Powder coating technology was conceived as a laboratory curiosity and blossomed a few decades later as a multi-billion dollar global industry. Many folks think powder is the latest and greatest industrial coating technology; however, its origin dates back to 1953 when a clever German scientist developed a means to apply an organic coating to a metal part without the use of a solvent carrier.

Not long ago, the great people of our great country underwent one of the most fractious elections in my lifetime. Most political “experts” were fooled as to who all their polls and comprehensive studies had predicted to win. The campaigns were unequivocally divisive and bitter, pitting urban dwellers against country folk, coastal enclaves against “fly-over” states, and family members against each other.
