Tailor-made waterborne core-shell polymers are increasingly used as binders in industrial coatings. Almost unlimited possibilities to control polymer properties make them the first-choice raw material in industrial metal protection, wood protection, and anti-fouling coatings.
Is there a particle size that would lend itself to consistency of film thickness on wire assemblies? Can an e-coated vehicle shell be shipped overseas and painted at the destination?
The ChemQuest Group’s Joe Powder shares his powder coating knowledge and expertise by answering questions sent in from around the world.
For those looking to replace PFAS in their coatings formulations, this article discusses some experiments and data that show how organosilicones compare to PFAS compounds in critical performance criteria such as low surface tension/surface energy, COF, water repellency, oil repellency, stain resistance, and chemical stability.
Building information modeling (BIM) is revolutionizing the way professionals in many aspects of the building industry do their jobs, including those involved in industrial coating. Learn more about BIM software, its benefits, and how it is transforming the coating process.
In the transition from internal combustion engine to battery-powered electric vehicles, many components needed for automotive assembly have changed. Embracing the exceptional qualities of zinc-nickel finishes takes on even greater significance as we serve the transformation underway in the requirements of automotive fasteners within the realm of BEVs.
