Strong: Dry finish is a powder made of polymer resins systems, pigments, leveling agents and flow modifiers. The ingredients are mixed in right proportion and crushed to make fine dust. The dust is then sprayed with a gun. The method is called electrostatic spraying as the fine dust particles are electrostatically charged.

The dust covers the surface evenly and when heated, it makes a protective film. The coated metal pieces are cured with heat that melts the find particles. When the particles melt, they become joined.

Convenient: It is easy to spray dust instead of wet paint as lot of paint would go waste when spraying. Dust would also spread outside the surface targeted but the dust can be collected with a broom and used again. But it isn’t possible to collect and use wet paint.
