Powder coatings are solvent-free enamels manufactured using a 3-step process (Powder coatings production). The powder coating is applied to the part or component by electrostatic spraying equipment or in a tribostatic process. In a subsequent curing process, the powder coating is melted and chemically cross-linked at substrate temperatures of 302 to 392 °F (150 to 200 °C).
The success story of powder coating begins with industrial surface finishing in the 1960s (History of powder coating) and continues to develop as the technology has many advantages:
– No solvents
– Virtually 100% material utilization
– Easy to process and clean
– Applicable on many substrates
– Protective and decorative
– TIGER Drylac® offers the most comprehensive range of standard colors and effects.
Powder Coatings Production
TIGER Drylac® powder coatings are solvent-free coating materials consisting of different synthetic resin systems, pigments and special additives for high quality surface finishing. The basic materials for powder coatings are processed into a fine coating powder in a 3-step production process: premixing, extrusion and milling. Depending on subsequent use, the powder is set to a predefined particle distribution.
In contrast to liquid paints, powder coatings do not contain solvents. Powder coatings are applied to parts by electrostatic spraying equipment or in a tribostatic process. In a subsequent curing process, they are melted and chemically cross-linked at substrate temperatures of 302 to 392 °F (150 to 200 °C).
