Weathering Results of Colorful Fluoropolymer Powder Coatings

Powder coatings provide an excellent method for coating a number of building products where exterior durability is required. The optimum systems are based on fluoropolymer resin systems and highly durable color pigments. The standard for the colored pigments are a class known as CICPs (Complex Inorganic Color Pigments) that have the ultimate in durability and inertness while providing bright colors. A study was initiated that looks at the weathering of CICPs in FEVE resin systems in a wide range of tests including QUV-B, concentrated natural weathering, Northern Industrial (US), and Southern Florida. A wide range of CICP classes were used to provide data on a wide range of possible color matching.
