Powder Coating: Benefits & Opportunities

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description Massachusetts has established a Purchasing Preference for Powder Coated Products, in recognition of their reduced environmental impact and high quality. Powder coating technology is successfully used in many industries as a substitute for solvent-based painting. Depending on the liquid system in use, a company may realize significant energy savings when they switch to a powder coating.

MA OTA is holding a series of events to promote powder coating and to help companies that use powder coatings on their products to sell in state and local government markets. The first event was a March 2007 workshop that included presentations on powder coating technologies and why they work for businesses. Speakers at the event include representatives of Powder Coating Systems, Eastern Finishing and Powder Coating, Columbia Manufacturing, and MA OTA. Approximately 38 people from a variety of industries attended the workshop.

MA OTA is planning a follow-up meeting in May 2007 with state procurement officials and companies that use powder coating technologies to promote the state's purchasing preference for powder-coated products.
