Powder Coating in Appliance Manufacture

New modern appliances

The Largest Share of the Powder Coating Market?

Powder coatings coat a wide range of appliances, including refrigerators, dryers, washing machines, and microwave ovens. Most importantly for home use, these coatings help protect surfaces from scratches, dings, dents, and corrosion, so it gives appliance a longer service life.

In 2020, appliances accounted for the largest share of the powder coatings market. It’s thought this was due to the growth of the housing sector, advances in appliance technology, and changes in consumer lifestyle. All these factors contributed to a big demand for the latest in home appliances, and since most major appliances have at least some powder coated surfaces, appliances led the way in the demand for powder coating services.

Why Powder Coating Works Well with Appliances

Powder coating is chosen for many appliances because it provides the temperature, corrosion, and chemical resistance needed across a range of applications, from ovens to dishwashers.

  • A solvent free application, powder coating results in no emissions from volatile organic compounds (VOCs). If you’re familiar with the odors given off by some paints, floor finishes, and new carpeting— those are VOCS, and they can cause allergic reactions like eye, nose, and throat irritations.
  • Today, the color chart for powder coat is almost endless. Appliance manufacturers can choose from the perfect shade of white to a fabulous blue or striking red. For practical purposes though, the kitchen trend in 2022 is away from candy colors and toward white, black, or stainless-steel appliances.
  • Powder coatings looks great and will last for decades on the average appliance. They are less likely to be scratched, chipped, or corroded. They are also less likely to fade and to wear through over time. Powder coating stands up better than traditional spray paint to impact, moisture, chemicals, and ultra-violet light.
  • Appliance coatings using powder coat can be anti-microbial, stain resistant, and even finger-print resistant.

What Great Dane Brings to the Table

When working with OEM manufacturers, Great Dane Powder Coating has the expertise to build a beneficial relationship that is cost and time effective, both mindful of your budget and aware of how we can help you improve processes.

For example, we know whether a bend radius is too tight to allow even powder coverage, or how variations in the thickness of a part may affect the way it cures in an oven.

When manufacturers involve their powder coater in the design process, we can recommend changes that avoid the cost of designing special racking systems for coating and that allow for the most efficient coating process. This can drive down cost and improve turnaround time.

At Great Dane Powder coating, we also provide electrophoretic coating (e-coating). E-coating by itself is an effective and durable substrate cover, but when used as a primer for powder coating, the combination delivers the highest end durability in today’s coating market.
