Layer without limits – When is powder the better option?
Presented by Matthew Rush, PPG, and Sameer Shaikh, Arkema
Liquid coatings have traditionally been the go-to system for long term corrosion protection. But with performance advancements and growing environmental concerns, powder is quickly becoming the technology of choice for many manufacturers. This session will begin with a basic overview of powder, application techniques and chemistries, followed by the powder systems and technologies which will offer the best corrosion performance, including powders place within ISO 12944. We will review next how powder compares to liquid in sustainability, performance and cost. Finally, discuss the upstream powder coating resin and its sustainable value proposition.
