Powder coatings

Effect pigments, aluminium pigments, gold bronze pigments

Because there are absolutely no solvents and the overspray can be reused, powder coatings are one of the most environment-friendly coating systems. Metallic effects (aluminium and gold bronze pigments) are used in the coating of tubular steel furniture, automobile parts (e.g. wheel rims), kitchen appliances, tools etc.

The appropriate coating of pigment particles makes them suitable for exterior applications (e.g. façade elements). Coated pigments in no way compromise the electrostatic charging and application of powder coatings. Metallic pigments should be incorporated after extrusion and milling of the coating powder either by dry blending or thermal bonding onto the resin particles. The second method improves the reuse of the overspray. As with all applications that use dry aluminium powder, the applicable safety regulations should be observed.

Special aluminium pigments for use in powder coatings. The Powdal® product group comprises extremely brilliant, leafing pigments in the particle-size range of approximately 6-20 µm and non-leafing pigments in the particle-size range of approximately 11-75 µm. Powdal® non-leafing pigments come as uncoated and coated pigment powders. Whilst uncoated pigments are an interesting, cost effective alternative, SiO2-coated products are primarily recommended for powder coatings.

Their advantages are, above all, ease of electric chargeability and increased endurance.
