When flexibility, adhesion, toughness and corrosion resistance is required, epoxy powder coating is used extensively today. This coating is based on epoxy resins, which is manufactured in a way that enables the possibility of coating a high film build without any defect in the coating when cured.
What is outstanding with this epoxy powder is it’s excellent resistance to solvents, other chemicals and provides a good corrosion protection layer. It is especially suitable in aggressive environments. Unfortunately they are not suitable for external use where they will form a chalk like appearance on the surface with lengthy exposure to sunlight.
Mainly used in the coating of valves, pipe work, switchgear, shelving and metal furniture with a film thickness of 70-120 microns.
