Drums - valued worldwide as reliable bulk package.
Sheet steel drums have proved themthelves for the transport of solid
and liquid goods by land, air and sea. Metal Coating Systems for
the heavy package industry provide reliable exterior protection
for this type of transport containers.
Defined and high degree of protection
for outside and inside.
The alternate protection of product and package being a priority
with the interior coating, it is mainly corrosive and mechanical
influences which have to be taken into account for the exterior
Metal coatings exterior drum
Metal Coatings stoving paints for exterior drum coating, water-thinnable,
increasingly gain significance as a supplement to the classical
solvent-based paints in the course of more stringent environmental
requirements. Like the stoving paints on solvent basis, these environmentally
favorable products with a proportion of organic solvents < 1%,
fully comply with the test specifi-cations for packages APA 7. Metal
Coatings stoving paints for the exterior coating of drums are suitable
for all conventional application methods, including multicolor painting.
Special formulations of solvent-based and water-thinnable exterior
drum paints can also be applied according to the roller method.
Marking, air or oven-drying is easily possible.
Metal Coatings interior drum
The Metal Coatings range of interior drum paints continuously
takes into account the developments of the chemical industry with
regard to semi-finished products. Metal Coatings meets thepermanently
expanding market of packaging goods by continuously expanding the
further development of their product range. Even with particularly
aggressive filling goods it is mainly single-coat paints which are
employed today. In individual cases, where thick-coated paint films
are clearly required, Metal Coatings interior drum paints can also
be applied in two coats. The Metal Coatings interior drum paints
meet the test specifications for packages APA 8 in all respects.
Metal Coatings reconditioning
The intensified legal directions and the continuously rising
costs of raw materials shift increasing significance to the re-use
of heavy packages. The air and force-dried products are matched
to the special processing conditions for reconditioning. The use
of high-quality binders and pigments provides the paint with good
technical properties even under adverse drying conditions. Adhesion,
hardness and elasticity as well as high gloss values and weather
resistance of the Metal Coatings reconditioning coats come very
close to the quality of new drums. Our range includes both solvent-based
and waterthinnable paints for highly diverse processing conditions
encountered in the reconditioning industry. The low proportion of
organic solvents in our water-thinnable paints assists the user
in meeting the directives with regard to environmental protection.
Metal Coatings packing strap
The Metal Coatings packing strap paint program is a major supplementation,
increasing our range for the packaging industry. For the most important
packaging strap manufacturers operating world-wide, Metal Coatings
develops and supplies packaging strap paints meeting the highest
mechanical test criteria. All relevant test specifications are met
even with regard to very thin dry films. Besides the traditional
black packaging strap paint, Metal Coatings has developed a zinc-coloured
quality having particularly high anti-corrosion values. The water-thinnable
Metal Coatings packaging strap paints applied in a special dip process
are suitable for both, the conventional baking process and for induction
