Advantages of Powder Coating for Busbars

Busbars are vital yet overlooked components of an electrical system. These items, typically made of copper, brass, or aluminum, allow wires and electrical connections to congregate along a single axis for convenience. Busbars are generally uninsulated, meaning if anyone touches a busbar they run the risk of electric shock or even electrocution. Coating Systems explains the advantages of powder coating as insulation for busbars in today’s blog. Maintains Conductivity of Electrical Components Powder coating doesn’t interfere with the conductivity of electrical components, much like any other insulating material. Powders are even better than rubber or plastic because they are form-fitting and don’t take up a lot of…

What Metals Benefit Most From Powder Coating?

Powder coating represents a different application than painting a surface. Instead of sticking to metal because of petrochemicals, powder coating works due to electrostatic charges applied to the metal followed by curing through high heat. As such, only metals that maintain a steady electric charge benefit from a coating of fine powder. Coating Systems discusses what metals work best with this process. Steel Alloys Most steel alloys work very well with powder coating. Ordinary carbon steel doesn’t have a lot of corrosion resistance compared to other types of steel, which is part of the reason why powders offer critical protection from the elements. Stainless steel and galvanized…
