The powder coating industry, involving powder drying ovens, paint drying ovens and powder curing oven products, is forecast for increased investment globally between 2017-2023.

Powder coating

The powder coatings market can be categorised into five regions – Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America. During 2016, powder coating products in Asia-Pacific accounted for some 40% of the market as a result of increasing investments in furniture, household goods and utilities along with products used in the transport and automotive sectors.  

In all the emerging economies of Southeast Asia, there was an increased demand for powder drying ovens and paint drying ovens for the production of  agricultural equipment and electronics, in particular. Moreover, as more disposable income resulted in personal wealth in countries such as Vietnam, Thailand and India, powder curing oven products were responsible for a rise in demand for domestic appliances such as microwave ovens, washing machines, and fridge freezers.

None of this is lost on Midlands-based TD Finishing, which is a paint and powder coating systems company, well known across the UK and abroad for its specialist powder curing oven products.

Powder Drying Ovens 

For TD Finishing, the principle of the paint curing oven design is that air inside is recirculated by a fan and heated by a gas burner, which is mounted inside an insulated chamber with high efficiency modulating gas and air burners to give the most cost-effective running consumption. The paint drying oven design incorporates negative air seals at the entry and exit to minimise heat loss. The whole process is meticulously handled by company specialists with years of experience working with powder coating ovens.


Along with its powder drying oven products, TD Finishing is also renowned for working on university graduate training programmes. To get the best out of local talent and train students to understand the techniques of powder coating.


Recently, the company worked with Wolverhampton University on a student training initiative, with graduates working on its powder curing over products. One of their graduates worked on powder coating design for a Shrewsbury-based company called Salop Powder Coating Ltd, which has since become the talk of the West Midlands for its powder coating products.


Oven sizes can range from 5 minute pre-treatment drying ovens, to 15-minute powder curing oven metal work. For a glimpse of the specialist approach to powder drying ovens taken by TD Finishing, please visit the website or talk to a member of the team on +44 (0) 121 520 8884 or email us on
