Solvent-free powder coating technology addresses architectural products

Thursday, 15 March 2012

Novel technologies facilitating successful powder coating of inherently non-conductive architectural products made of plastics, composites and wood will be presented at a conference.

Wet paints, commonly used for decorative finishing of architectural components exhibit low transfer efficiency and constitute a major source of solid waste and VOCs. 100 % eco-sustainable architectural products fabricated from high-tech and commodity composites, plastics and solid wood are feasible due to the availability of powder coatings, an attractive solvent-free technology achieving 96-98 % material utilisation. This technology, however, requires electrostatic deposition of charged powder particles and can only be used on conductive, i.e. metallic components in the automotive, marine and construction industries. At the European Coatings Conference "Architectural coatings” on 24 and 25 April in Berlin, Prof. Voytek Gutowski, CSIRO Division of Materials Science and Engineering, will present theoretical and practical aspects of novel technologies facilitating successful powder coating of inherently non-conductive architectural products made of plastics, composites and wood through providing adequate surface conductivity and excellent coatings adhesion.
