Coating Polymers for the Anti Corrosive Coating Industry

Why use Thermoplastics?

  • Commonly referred to as “plastics”
  • Melt on heating and re-solidify on cooling.
  • Common plastics are polyethylene, polystyrene, polypropylene, nylon, PVC etc.
  • Range of properties-from flexible to rigid, high temperature or chemical resistance, toughness, electrical insulation etc.
  • On heating, they react with themselves to “cross-link” the molecules into a matrix which solidifies and will not melt again on reheating.
  1. Barrier Properties
    • Vapour
    • Liquids
    • Chemical Resistance
  2. Electrical Insulation
    • Anti-corrosion
  3. Flexibility
    • 500-800% elongation
  4. No cracking or chipping
  5. Thicker Coatings
    • Barrier properties
    • Edge and weld coverage
    • “Grip” and “warmth”
    • Impact Resistance
    • Fluid dip, flame and flock spraying
      • 250-1000 micron
    • Electrostatic spray
      • 150-300 micron
    • Food Contact
      • Low toxicity

Key Benefits:

  • Resistance to stress cracking, adverse weather conditions, detergents, salt and typical airborne pollutants
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Excellent abrasion and impact resistance
  • Superior chemical resistance
  • UV rays resistance
  • Flexibility and Repairability
  • Anti-osmotic barrier
  • Halogen free
  • Combustion fumes are low in smoke
  • Low toxicity index
  • Environmentally safe
