Thermoplastic Powders for the Coating of Metals

Thermoplastic powders coatings, Abcite® and Flamulit®, are designed to provide long-term protection as well as decorative finish to metal items. In addition, they offer special properties such as such as soft touch, noise dampening, impact resistance, enhanced corrosion resistance, which makes them the coating of choice for various applications.

Abcite® and Flamulit® products are available in a wide range of colors and can be easily applied by the fluidized bed or by the spraying process. Spraying techniques include electrostatic or hot flocking. Both product ranges are applied without primer; a classic surface treatment such as degreasing is enough. For increased adhesion sand blasting might be required. Typical applications include coatings for wirework, supermarket trolleys, pipe fittings, valves, tubes, pipe heating systems, lamp posts and traffic poles, water tanks, inside lining of fire extinguishers, automotive parts and many more. Grades for food contact are also available.

Formulation Additives

The Coathylene® product range are mainly used as fine powders of polyethylene's, polypropylene's, and ethylvinylacetate's as additives for fiber- reinforced polyesters, binder for the manufacturing of dry cell batteries, anti-caking for elastomer production, structural additive for paints, sintering of metals, rapid prototyping, special printing paper and many other specialty applications.

Coathylene® fine powders are produced through a patented chemical process, which allows achieving a particle size in the ranges from 10 to 30 microns. The Coathylene® product range also comprises polymer powders obtained by ambient or cryogenic milling. The most important applications of these coarser powders are as thermo-adhesives and as protective coatings for the textile industry and composites industry. Increasing demand for environment-friendly products in the automotive industry is also opening new markets such as adhesives and binders in the manufacturing of car interior finishes.
