IFS Coatings is introducing IFS PureClad® FFT, a high-performance powder coating for non-metal substrates that delivers a smooth, flexible finish in just one layer and with a robust production process that takes just 7 to 10 minutes to complete.
The flagship of the IFS PureClad range, PureClad FFT incorporates a game-changing approach to powder coating chemistry that delivers exceptional flow for a smooth finish, flexibility and excellent physical properties such as first-class adhesion and crack, chip, mar, moisture and stain resistance.
A cost-effective coating option, PureClad FFT overcomes the challenges traditionally associated with powder coating non-metal substrates and has been designed with coaters and consumers in mind.
Chris Reding, Director Alternate Substrates, explains, “PureClad FFT has been developed to offer manufacturers and professional coaters a robust new coating solution to equip their businesses for the 21st century. We understand that coaters need a repeatable finishing process that is easy to apply, maximizes productivity and improves end-product value – all with an approach that is environmentally responsible. Likewise, we understand that manufacturers want to offer their customers world-class aesthetic and performance options, which PureClad FFT delivers with an array of colors, textures and in-demand features such as anti-microbial properties.”
PureClad FFT cures in only three minutes at 265 °F, therefore the entire coating process takes just 7 to 10 minutes to complete. This fast, low-temperature cure requirement makes PureClad FFT suitable for substrates such as engineered wood and many hardwood species.
