Powder Coat MDF For An Enviable Finished Wood Product

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 291

Medium Density Fiberboard or MDF is a wood material made from various wood fibers. MDF is produced by combining the wood fibers with a resin, high temperatures, and pressure. Finishing wood with powder is becoming increasingly popular because of the many advantages it offers to manufacturers and consumers alike. The powder is dry and does not require any solvents. The process of powder coating on MDF is quite different from applying a liquid paint.

There are two different types of powder that can be applied to wood products: thermoplastic and thermoset. Thermoplastic powders are applied to a surface that has already been heated. Usually, the preheating temperature is the perfect temperature for melting the thermoplastic powder.

Thermoset coats also melt when introduced to heat. Unlike thermoplastic powder coats, however, thermoset does not go back to liquid form when the material it is applied to is introduced to heat. In addition, there are four types of resins used in thermosetting. The first, epoxy, is mostly used for protective purposes. The second resin type, acrylic, is most commonly used in automotives. The third, polyester, happens to be the most common type of resin because it can be used in many different fields or areas. The final resin type, fluoropolymer, is generally used in the architectural industry.

There are a vast number of benefits to powder coated MDF. We will, however, briefly review just a few of these benefits. A powder finish offers the advantages of both protection and style to consumers. The powder makes the wood products resistant to stains and any damages that may be caused by direct sunlight. The MDF is also protected from scratches, rough handling, chemical or water spills, and temperature extremes. These features make wood products finished with powder perfect for garages, retail stores, and other areas wherein your investment needs to be protected.

The color options for powder are nearly unlimited. You can choose colors that match an already existing décor or you can customize and personalize an entire room around your chosen powder color. This finish gives flexibility in creating any design without the need to worry about a less than perfect finish on the end product. Another great advantage to applying a powder finish is that the coating process does not leave an uneven surface.

Powder coated MDF is manufactured through a process that does not harm the environment. The process does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Both can be extremely dangerous for the environment and humans.

Now, with this knowledge, anyone can shop for garage cabinets, tables, P.O.P. displays (store fixtures) and other wood products knowing exactly what you are looking for. A powder finish is a great way to keep equipment looking new and fashionable; however, a coating will vary in color consistency, depending on the manufacturer. Be sure to do the due diligence before selecting a manufacturer. Most manufacturing companies do not have the equipment and means to apply the finish in house and have no color control. GCC Coatings, however, has refined the process of powder coating MDF in house over the span of nearly a decade. Entrust your wood products to these experts of the craft to ensure quality.
