1EpoxyEpoxy coatings are non-weather able finishes which possess outstanding chemical and mechanical properties. Epoxy Powders are the combination of pure epoxy resins cross-linked with proprietary hardeners. This chemistry of powder coating finds its applications where maximum corrosion and chemical resistance is required. Epoxy powders are very practical coatings for Bathroom Fittings, pipes, Valves, Ceiling panels, Office Furniture, Automotive, Metal cabinets, Sports and recreation equipment, power tools, Fire extinguishers, Safety equipment, Wire goods
2Epoxy PolyesterThe Tux Coat Epoxy Polyester range of powder coatings is a general-purpose coating based on epoxy-polyester resin blend used in general metal coating and domestic appliances. This type of powder coating system is typically used where the hard, durable finish of an epoxy coating is necessary, but with added superior heat stability.
Typical applications include coatings for domestic appliances, office furniture and Machines and Equipment
3Pure PolyesterTux Coat Pure Polyester is an exterior polyester powder coating and was designed for architectural use where superior gloss and colour retention are required. This is achieved through the superior UV stability and weathering resistance that this range possesses. Pure Polyester powders are good for outdoor use where considerable amount of sunlight is present. They have good weathering and mechanical properties and resistance to over baking.
This is best suited for Aluminium Sections, Grills, Architectural Paneling Automotive parts, Irrigation pipes & Fixtures, Outdoor furniture/Equipments & Farm Equipments.
4PolyurethanePolyurethane powders are formulated as a superior polyurethane system for many external applications in the automotive industry. These powders are suitable for interior as well as exterior applications.
5Super DurableTux Coat super Durable powders are manufactured from functional epoxy resins to create fusion-bonded epoxy powder coatings. These coatings are used to provide high corrosion protection and chemical resistance to the coating of pipelines and valves.
- Determine the type of material you are going to powdercoat and then select a suitable powder for the finish. Powdercoating is done with thermoplastic or thermoset polymer powder, and these materials are formulated for bonding with different base metals to give the best results.
- Disassemble all threaded or lubricated interfaces before you begin, including anything you don’t want coated.
- Clean the base metal thoroughly. Using bead or abrasive blasting on hard metal, such as cast iron or steel, will remove mill and rust scale, dirt and foreign materials. Chemical solvent cleaning will remove any grease, oil, or paint, and light sanding can be done to finish preparing the surface. Aluminum, magnesium, and other soft alloy metals can be solvent cleaned and wire brushed, or sanded if needed. The next step is to strip the metal of any remaining grime or gunk.
- Apply the powder to the object to be powder coated. This is done using a “gun” or compressed air sprayer which electrostatically charges the powder material so that it sticks to the grounded base metal object receiving the coating. Make sure you have your electrostatic charge hooked up to whatever part you are coating. The powder you use won’t properly adhere unless it’s given a charge to hold onto.After applying the coat but before curing, be careful not to brush or blow on the powder coat, as this will cause some of the powder to fall off, leaving you with a less precise coat.
- Cure the metal at a temperature appropriate for the powder material you use. A conventional oven is suitable for this purpose if the metal is small enough to fit, otherwise, an infrared heat lamp or other flame less heat source needs to be used. Normally, the object is heated to 350° to 375° F (175° to 190° C) for about 10 to 15 minutes, and allowed to cool.
