Powder coating touch ups in the field? Yes, we can!
As powder coaters, we often work hard to distinguish ourselves from the world of liquid coatings from which we have evolved. We all know the advantages that powder has over liquid. Our environmentally sustainable, lower-applied-cost, more-durable coating system works well when applied properly and will outlast most commonly used liquid systems. Until it gets damaged in the field — then we have a problem. This is where we as powder coaters need to develop an understanding and appreciation for how liquid coatings can bring benefits to powder coating.
