PPG Industries: High-Temperature Powder Coatings
April 30, 2002
PPG Industries has developed new high-temperature powder coatings that offer superior durability in prolonged exposure to temperatures of up to 600F. Based on proprietary silicone chemistry, ENVIROCRON HT powder coatings are specially formulated for applications -- such as automotive, appliance, and lawn and garden -- in which resistance to high temperatures is essential, according to Rob Edwards, PPG's director of global powder coatings operations. "PPG's new heat-resistance technology offers significant improvement over technology and products previously available to the industry," Edwards said. In addition to their superior durability, ENVIROCRON HT powder coatings have superb adherence characteristics that enable customers, in the proper circumstances, to recoat or touch up products on the manufacturing line instead of scrapping them. As a result, manufacturers can dramatically reduce their product reject rate and increase their profits.
