3,300,000 Pounds!!!

Posted by

3 little words: Every Pound Matters. You may have heard or seen them before but it’s a motto that our sister company, Surplus Coatings, lives by. It’s a motto that also carries a lot of weight…. literally. 

Powder coating has a particle size of about 40 microns, that’s roughly 50 times smaller than a grain of sand. However, when combined with billions and trillions of its friends it can take up an incredible amount of volume.

We all know that in the hands of a professional, powder coating can be used to create incredible pieces that are nothing short of works of art. Unfortunately, there is a dark side to powder coating. Like any coating technology there is an amount of waste that is generated. The math is simple, the more you spray the more waste is generated. That is why we are proud to say that as of the end of August 2016 Surplus Coatings has recycled and saved over 3.3 Million lbs of waste powder coating from heading to the landfill this year. In June 2016 alone 617,000 lbs came through the door. That’s a ton of powder (1650 tons to be exact)!

Surplus Coatings is doing all that they can to help reduce the powder coat waste footprint. We are giving manufacturers the opportunity to achieve their goal of operating greener and being zero landfill facilities. These are numbers to be proud of and at MIT Powder Coatings we are excited to share the great things that are happening through Surplus Coatings.
