Xiom Corp. is a technology business offering delivery of plastic powder coatings at onsite locations utilizing the XIOM 1000 System. Powder coating currently is a process in which metal parts are brought into a factory environment where they are cleaned and prepared to receive a powder coating. Plastic in powder form is then applied to the various metal parts by means of an electrostatic charge that causes the powder to adhere to the surface. The coated part is then heated in an oven for a period of time to cause the plastic to melt and adhere to the substrate. Although we use plastic powder, we do not electrostatically charge that powder in order for it to adhere to a substrate. We use a different mechanism which simultaneously applies and fuses the powder to a substrate. The advantage of this process is that the coating process is totally portable and can be applied anywhere, not necessarily in a factory setting, and can be applied without use of an oven to cure the coating, and can be applied to most substrates in addition to the metal substrate to which powder coatings are traditionally applied in a factory, using an oven.
