Frequently asked questions about powder coating quality
Superior Paint and Powder Coating work to the highest industry standards and we encourage you to get in touch and find out more about our quality processes.
How can you tell if powder coating is good quality?
The best way of ensuring a quality colour finish and application is to use certified powder coaters approved by leading organisations such as Qualicoat, and able to demonstrate their expertise in producing powder coating extrusions to the required standards.
What is the British Standard for Powder Coating
BS EN 12206 is the British Standard for architectural powder coating. This is a complex standard but essentially sets out the coating thickness and weight applied to the primary surface of the profile.
Is powder coating matt or gloss?
Both matt and gloss are available including satin. Typically, gloss levels are around 30% for matt, 60% for semi-gloss or sating and 70-80% for gloss.
Why does powder coating peel off?
The main reason for problems such as peeling with powder coating is incorrect application and poor quality. It is lack of adhesion of the powder to the surface that typically causes this, although there are other reasons, such as care, the environment, damage etc.
What is the most durable powder coated surface?
There are several ways to achieve a durable or super-durable finish, including coatings for buildings in extreme or severe locations, city centres etc. Contact us for more information about the most durable types of colours and applications and how to maintain them.
