Flush Metal Powder Coated bathroom partitions are finished with a powder coating in the color selected. After the powder is applied to the partition, using an electrostatic spray process, the part passes through an oven and cures, melting the powder into a smooth film on the surface of the partition.
Powder is 100% solid and contains no solvent; therefore, it is an attractive choice over liquid finishing. Powder coatings permit compliance with volatile organic compound standards. Powder coatings offer a harder film than most liquid finishes. A more impervious film which offers excellent corrosion and humidity resistance.
