Powdercoating a Sustainable Option for Non-metals

Large international companies, such as furniture manufacturers IKEA, are now adopting this method in order to reduce the environmental impact associated with the finishing of its furniture. Powdercoating contains no solvents, so it’s essentially a VOC-free coating.

In New Zealand, Climate Surfaces was one of the industry leaders with this method. Managing director Kyle True says it was 11 years ago that the company was involved with the creation of this coating methodology.

To manufacture this advanced finish for non-metals, Climate Surfaces has a specialist plant which uses significantly lower curing temperatures as well as infrared heat instead of convection. It’s a precise formula.

“Powdercoating is a baked-on finish so it provides an inherent durability. It’s also a more efficient way to apply coatings at a lower cost,” Kyle says.

Aesthetically, it provides a wide range of colours and finish effects which work equally well on both metal and non-metal surfaces, even when placed alongside each other.
