Understanding Qualicoat: The International Quality Certification for Architectural Powder Coating


May 4th, 2023

Session Synopsis

A versatile and durable finish that is electrostatically applied, powder coating is a commonly used option for a broad range of metal components, from car wheels to building products, and more. Because of its method of application, if applied correctly, powder coating offers superior protection to typical painted-on coatings.

Within the construction sector, however, care should be taken when specifying products featuring powder coating. Considering the potentially drastic consequences associated with their failure, it is essential to ensure the quality of all coatings before specification.

The best way to do this is by seeking out coatings that meet the requirements of Qualicoat, the world’s only independent process control specification for quality architectural powder coating. This session is intended to shine a light on Qualicoat. Our speakers explain how it works and why you, as an architect, can be sure that products that carry its certification meet the highest standards and are safe to use.

At the end of this presentation, you should be able to:

  • Outline the benefits of powder coating, as compared to typical painted-on coatings
  • Explain why the quality of powder coating is important and outline the potential negative consequences of sub-standard coatings
  • Explain why Qualicoat has become recognised and accepted internationally as a reliable certification scheme
  • Outline what is involved in Qualicoat process control
