What Is a Powder Coating Oven?
A powder coating oven is a type of furnace used to complete the powder coating process on metal products. Powder coating is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Powder coating creates a hard finish on materials and is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating ovens cure the powder until a strong layer forms on the heated product.
How Does a Powder Coating Curing Oven Work?
Powder coating ovens assist in covering metal products with dry powder. These products include household appliances, automobile and bicycle parts, aluminum extrusions and other types of hardware.
To cure the powder coating, industrial powder coating ovens must be large enough to contain the metal object being coated and be able to sustain 450°F. Generally, a curing oven for powder coating is designed to prevent powder blow-off to ultimately reduce reworks and save costs.
How Long Does Powder Coating Take to Cure?
Unlike items with traditional paint, powder-coated products generally cure in about 15–30 minutes.
