The Application of Industrial Powder Coatings

December 17, 2014 | By | No Comments

Powder coatings are one of the easiest ways to protect equipment and other objects. Coating that is applied as a powder starts out free-flowing, and it doesn’t contain solvents because it doesn’t need a binder in order to stay in liquid form. Sometimes a powder coating just makes more sense than a liquid paint coating.

For example, powder emits almost no volatile organic compounds, so it provides a safer indoor environment. Also a powder coating tends to be thicker than a liquid coating, and any overspray that’s left after coating an object can be reused, making it more economical than a liquid coating. Read More

The Benefits of Fluoropolymer Coatings

December 10, 2014 | By | No Comments

Many people have heard of fluoropolymers, although there are probably more people who have not heard of them. One of the most common fluoropolymers on the market is PTFE, which is short forpolytetrafluoroethylene. Other common fluoropolymers include PFA, which is short for perfluoroalkoxy vinyl ether, and FEP, which is short for fluorinated ethylene propylene. All fluoropolymers are considered to be “super plastics” because they are relatively inexpensive and extremely durable and versatile. Numerous different industries and jobs can benefit greatly from this category of materials. Read More

Understanding Uses for Kynar

December 3, 2014 | By | No Comments

Polyvinylidene fluoride resin, known within the coating industry as PVDF, is commonly sold under the brand name Kynar. The material is extremely non-reactive with many different substances, and it’s a pure thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is often used when a coating that is extremely pure, strong, and able to resist heat, bases, acids, and solvents is needed. It also creates very little smoke when a fire occurs, and it is easier to melt because its melting point is around 177 degrees Celsius, which is quite a bit lower than most other fluoropolymers.

What is FEP Non-Stick Coating?

November 26, 2014 | By | No Comments

There are many different types of non-stick coatings on the market, although DuPont’s Teflon brand of PTFE is probably the most widely known. Even though most people have heard of Teflon, it doesn’t mean that the product is right for every application. Sometimes there is a much better answer.

FEP non-stick coatings are one example of an alternative to Teflon. This type of coating is made by co-polymerizing hexafluoropropylene and tetrafluoroethylene. So what makes FEP non-stick coating a potentially better solution than Teflon? Here are the properties and common uses of this material. Read More
