An Example of Orange Peel

Orange peel is a common problem affecting the surface of powder-coated products.

It occurs when the powder forms tiny pockmarks and an uneven texture, ruining any reflective finish. The cause of orange peel is usually a lack of flow in the powder because of a thin film or an improper formulation.

Here’s a list illustrating how to reduce or eliminate orange peel:

  • Properly applying the powder using proven methods
  • Correct spraying pressure and distance
  • Properly storing and handling the powder
  • Monitoring the baking oven temperature

Proper training and equipment maintenance reduces or eliminates orange peel.
