Xiom Corp., developer and manufacturer of a portable polymer powder coating spray system, has brought to market four new coatings for use with its system. The coatings are all environmentally friendly and designed to protect structures against the elements, thus reducing the energy and materials costs involved in replacement.
All of the company’s coatings are environmentally friendly, as they contain no VOCs. In addition, the newest coating - 690 - does not contain TGIC (1,3,5-Triglycidyl Isocyanurate), a chemical used to cure polyesters. Two other coatings have been designed to prolong the life of wooden structures, thereby reducing the need for lumber. A polyester coating especially designed to be used on exterior woods, XT630 is a low-temperature-melt-and-cure powder that can be used on any heat-sensitive materials. The new XT742 is an epoxy polyester designed to be used on interior woods. No preheating is necessary to apply this fast, low-temperature-cure coating.
Additionally, PDF X300 reportedly is the first fluoropolymer that can be sprayed with Xiom's portable system. The coating is highly resistant to chemical corrosion. It is ideal for environments and industries in which acids and bases are present.
Xiom's coatings engineers are also at work on a retro-reflective coating capable of reflecting sunlight as well as artificial light. When applied to roofing materials, this polymer-based coating will be able to reduce the temperature of the roof, bringing about significant savings in energy. An anti-static coating and an improved polyethylene coating will also be available shortly.
