Polyester Powder Coating
Applied as a dry powder and then baked or cured to the surface in a temperature controlled oven, the powder melts over the part to form a hard protective coating. During application, the parts are electrostatically charged and the powder the opposite charge which ensures good coverage and an even coat.
Available in a vast range of colours and textures, powder coating offers a durable finish that is resistant to chips, scratches, chemicals and lubricants.
The key attributes of polyester powder coating are;
- Cost efficient for small or large runs
- Uniformed quality finish without runs or blistering
- excellent gloss and colour retention
Nylon Powder Coating
Nylon powder coating has a superior abrasion, wear and impact resistance when compared to polyester powder coating. Whilst the initial cost of nylon is more expensive, the extra cost is recovered many times over by savings in maintenance and replacement costs.
There are many benefits of Rilsan, Arkema and Serquigny nylon coatings. They provide a smooth low friction surface which is flexible at low temperatures, and offer good thermal insulation suitable of 'warm to the touch' requirements. Nylon also has good chemical and corrosion resistance.
Wet Paint & Two Pack (2K)
Well suited to applications that cannot be baked at high temperatures, wet paint and two pack paint is becoming more popular for plastic and upvc architectural products such as windows, cladding and trims, and fibreglass mouldings. They are also suited to electrical equipment that has been assembled and wired prior to coating.
Applied in a booth very similar to vehicular painting and cured at lower temperatures than powder coating, wet painting achieves a hard wearing durable finish.
Two pack is available in a wide range of colours and gloss levels and provides good resistance to weathering and UV.
