I'm selling powder coating in South America. So now I have many questions in regards to powder coatings. But the most important is this: Can powder coatings be used past the expiration date given by the supplier?
I am currently incarcerated in an Ohio prison and have a question regarding powder coating durability. I have always heard that powder coatings are one of the toughest industrial coatings and that they last forever.
Getting started, I would stick with polyester chemistry. It's the most versatile for someone getting started. It is very important to note that polyesters in the U.S. are rather different than polyesters in the EU.
I came across your blog whilst looking for solutions to an ongoing problem I’ve had. I design and manufacture designer gates cut from 3-mm mild steel. When I get the raw steel back from laser cutting it is still covered with mill scale.
I work for a powder coating facility and we are trying to find research or any publications describing the differences between e-coating and underbody powder such as Interpon's A1000 series. Essentially, is underbody powder coating a viable alternative to e-coat?
I have a question for you about allowable oven temperature variation. Our ovens were recently calibrated and were 1 degree off from our control unit reading to what was measured inside. Due to our ISO regulations I may possibly need to shut them down until it is exact. I know temperature variations are needed to keep minimal but this sounds ridiculous.
I am new to powder coating, but the plant where I work has been doing it for a few years. The guys do a good job on single color and are starting to experiment with multi colors. Is multicolor powder coating possible? If so, do you have any information that would help us?
I have some brake calipers that I powder coated and I would like to add lettering then then add a clear powder coat and put in the oven and bake it. I would like to know of any material (vinyl, decal or anything) that can withstand 200 ⁰C to be powder coated over.
Our September issue features articles and news about wood coatings, intumescent technology for sustainable buildings, tips for outsourcing coatings manufacturing, and an article on a liquid EPDM for waterborne coatings, which was the winner of the PCI Award for Technical Excellence at the Waterborne Symposium earlier this year.
