British Coatings Federation – Electrostatic Powder Coating
This revised (version 2 – December 2004) Code of Safe Practice: Powder Coating – Application of thermosetting coating powders by electrostatic spraying has been published by the British Coating Federation.
The cost of the Code is £25.00 and is available by phoning BCF on 01372 700856 or by ordering at www.coatings.org.uk
The Code replaces that of the British Coatings Federation of Great Britain Ltd Application of powder coatings by electrostatic spraying issued in 2002. The principles of the code are substantially similar and it is in the detail (e.g. application of DSEAR) where the amendments have been made. The Code covers the main five hazards of the operation of this process (dust explosion, fire, electric shock, exposure to hazardous substances and compressed air).
