The corrosion and delamination are significative sources of risks for metal components and threaten their functions. From this reason, the surface pre-treatment is carried out. One of the surface pre-treatment process is a powder coating. The application of powder coating is described in the paper by experiments. To obtain reliable results of surface pre-treatment process by powder coatings in practice, we create methodology based on process safety management, which is based on management of risks connected with process. We follow both, the partial risks and the integral risk evaluated by checklist.
