Coil / Can Coating
Effect pigments, aluminium pigments, vacuum metallized pigments, polychromatic pigments
In the coil coating process, rolled steel or aluminium strips are coated continuously on either one or both sides. After the organic coating is applied, the metal strip formed by stamping or bending. Due to the special properties of this composite material, particularly its high resistance to corrosion, good formability and decorative appearance, it is used in many industries. The coil-coating process is used for indoor and outdoor wall elements as well as for flat components, e.g. kitchen appliances, blinds, etc.
In addition to “classic coil coatings”, SCHLENK also supplies special VMPs for creating high gloss coatings similar to chrome or stainless steel. High transfer efficiency, as well as solvent energy capture and recycling make coil coating one of the most environment-friendly coating technologies.
With can coating (coating metal containers), aluminium pigments are used for creating effects and, most importantly, their barrier protection qualities allow the metal substrate to be protected from the corrosive nature of the container’s contents. Mainly fine pigments with good coverage qualities are used, and stabilized pigments are also used if there are high corrosion protection requirements.
