Application

  • Suitable for application by proprietary manual or automatic corona discharge equipment and triboelectric charging guns.

Pretreatment

  • It is essential to ensure that the surface to be coated is free from dust, rust, scale, oil, etc. Chemical pre-treatment of the substrate is essential to increase the long term corrosion resistance. Further information is given in our publication ‘Application of Powder Coatings’.

Test Data

  • Because the specialised nature of these products with a wide range of structure and texture effects, it is impossible to give general test data. Specific physical and environmental performance figures can be obtained from our laboratory.

    Speciality finishes are not recommended for use where prolonged outdoor exposure occurs or aggressive environments are encountered. When outstanding heat stability is required, polyester based powders should be used. Data quoted is typical but may vary from product to product.

Health & Safety

  • Use in accordance with the Code of Safe Practice published by the Paintmakers Association of Great Britain, “Application of Powder Coatings Electrostatic Spraying”. Copies are available on request. To prevent inhalation of airborne powder, face masks capable of removing respirable dust should be worn. Skin contact should be avoided and any deposited powder removed with soapy water. Some powders, mainly bright red and yellow shades, contain lead chrome and cadmium pigments. Further information is given in our Health and Safety Sheet.
