Modern powder coatings were introduced in 1952. They created great interest and much was written about them and much predicted for them. They did indeed find a niche, but they did not deliver quite as had been anticipated and by the early 1960's their star was waning. But one must never discount the impact of advancing technology — particularly when economy, convenience and performance are involved. Novel methods of application, primarily electrostatic spraying to complement the original fluidised bed approach, new formulations, faster curing epoxies and a better understanding of both the virtues and the defects of this method for industrial coating, has brought powder coatings back into their own.
