“I am interested in using powder in place of our existing paint finish. Is there some data published displaying a quantitative comparison of powder to liquid paint? My experience with local vendors is that they quote qualitative comparisons, i.e., “Powder coating is 2-4 times harder and more durable than [liquid] paint”. It is very difficult to convince management to authorize a change based on this type of reply. I need economics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.”


“There is a software program we developed for the Powder Coating Institute that uses a spreadsheet to compare typical powder coating operational costs to liquid coating costs. This spreadsheet is modeled after the PCI Technical Brief #21 that has been used for years to compare the most obvious operational cost differences. The diskette is free for the asking . This will provide the data that you are asking for in a clear and concise manner.”
