Polyester powder

  • Low-temperature curing
  • Powder coating

INFRALIT PE 8312-50 is a TGIC-free polyester powder coating based on polyester resin. At elevated temperatures the powder melts, cures and forms the final paint film.

Suitable for product coating within the metal industry for objects that require a weather resistant coating that will not yellow on exposure to heat or ultraviolet light. Examples of use are e.g. constructions that are permanently outdoors. The suitability of the metallic colours of polyester powders for outdoor use should be discussed with the paint manufacturer.

INFRALIT polyester powders form a mechanically and chemically resistant paint film that has good anticorrosive properties. The surface has good gloss retention even in outdoor conditions. EN 45545-2:2013+A1:2015 Fire protection on railway vehicles. Requirement sets R1, R7, R10 & R17 - Hazard levels HL1, HL2 & HL3.

Recommended film thickness The recommended film thickness is 60 - 100 µm. When the film thickness exceeds 120 µm, water that evaporates in the curing process may form holes and bubbles in the paint film. When painting with PE 8312 powder the suitable film thickness is to be found by application tests individually for each powder. The minimum film thickness is typically 100-120 µm.
