Peter Frese, Axalta Coating on temperature sensitive substrates
Today, the state-of-art powder coating is cured at temperatures between 160 to 200°C, limiting the application to metal substrates. Looking ahead, a curing temperature of around 120°C would enable powder coating applications on other substrates such as plastic or metals with a more complex shape.
The latest European Coatings JOURNAL offers a number of technical papers. While the main article focuses on how to enhance the sustainability of powder coated aluminium along the value chain, the last issue of the year also features novel developments in pigment technology, metal coating, and production technology. Furthermore, the December issue contains a report on the recent meeting of the Asian Paint Industry Council (APIC) in Manila.
