Dulux powder coatings are considered environmentally friendly


Everything is relative, and powder coatings are considered far more environmentally friendly than wet paints or anodising. Powder coatings use no solvents which are harmful to the environment. Oversprayed powder can be recovered, sieved and then reapplied to other products which helps reduce waste powder.

Whilst some councils restrict the waste disposal sites for powder coatings, the products have limited to no leaching effect in dry form and no leaching effect in the cured form. Given the very good durability of powder coatings, the need to re-coat on site is less common, meaning less burden on the environment into the future.

Powder coatings are recognised as being environmentally friendly. They are free of VOCs, waste can be recycled and the strong, durable surface can make care & maintenance easy.

But not all powder coatings maximise environmental care. Some powder coatings require high temperatures to cure. Whilst gas is inexpensive, the higher curing temperatures contributes greatly towards unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions.

Dulux is a world leader in the development of low cure powder coating technology. Dulux offers leading edge coatings that cure at lower temperatures and faster speeds than our competitors. Our low cure powders are not limited to architectural metal finishing but also includes heat sensitive substrates, like MDF, plywood and particle board.
