Is powder coating more durable than liquid paint?
The most popular liquid finishes are high solid acrylic urethanes which use solvents and hardeners in the application process. Acrylic urethanes are not as hard or flexible as powder resins. Powders are made from resins that need to be heated in order to flow and cross link to a substrate (part). This makes for a superior adhesion to substrates (part) making powder coating ten times more durable then the most popular liquid finishes. And powder coat colors stay brighter and more vibrant longer then liquid finishes.
