Powder coatings have become by far the main go to for metal furniture manufacturers everywhere. This segment includes many obvious types of manufactured product such as office furniture (desks, chairs) and functional space equipment for offices such as filing cabinets and storage space. Furniture for home use is also an important part of this industry, being used for dining tables and chairs for example. This industry also includes exterior furniture such as stadium seating and garden furniture
Powder requirements in this sector are geared toward aesthetic values – color and overall product finish. Color for this furniture can be extremely varied but is an essential factor in product design. Much of the office furniture coating tends to be more muted, with black gray and beige covering the vast majority of coating colors used. Office furniture coating finish is often also dictated by architects. The home furniture market on the decorative side can be very flashy, with these coatings frequently using metallic pigments and specialty colors.
