Pottorff uses powder coating to paint its louvers. Powder coat contains no solvents, has no VOC’s, requires less energy than other treatments, and produces less waste than wet paint. Powder coating’s environmental benefits may be further enhanced by using chrome-free pretreatment, eliminating chromates and other heavy metals from the waste and production streams.
