Abstract

Powder coatings are well established as a finishing technique in the automotive component market worldwide. These coatings offer benefits such as toughness and chip resistance. As the performance demands on powder coatings have increased then powder has continually risen to the challenge. Flexible coatings are supplied for brake tubing, machinable coatings for engine blocks and a new class of advanced durability powder offering resistance to five years of Florida weathering has recently been introduced. The new class of advanced durability powders offer significant advantages over most paint finishes for exterior durability while retaining all the traditional performances and application advantages of powder coatings.
