n Set of related baking temperatures and baking times which will yield a cured or dried film from a coating materials such as a powder coating for maximum performance. The baking schedule is specific for each material because powder coatings are made from different materials and require different periods of flow time (fusion) and compete cure time (reaction) or program of time comprising temperature held at specific periods of time and minimum and maximum temperatures.
