INFRALIT EP 8021-01
- Powder coating
INFRALIT EP 8021-01 Epoxy Powder is a coating based on epoxy resins. At elevated temperatures the powder melts, cures and forms the final paint film.
Used for product coatings within the metal industry, e.g. for lighting fixtures, apparatuses, furniture, shop outfitting, agricultural and household appliances. Also suitable for use on many special areas in the heavy metal and chemical industry.
The resultant paint film has excellent mechanical properties, i.e. good abrasion and impact resistance and elasticity. It is not scratched easily and withstands action by acids, alkalis, greases and solvents. Its anticorrosive properties are also good. On outdoor exposure the paint film has a tendency towards chalking. This phenomenon, however, affects only the appearance, not the protective power. An alternative material for outdoor use is INFRALIT Polyester Powder, which chalks only very little. It is not recommended that the metallic colours of epoxy powders are used in places where the painted surface is exposed to water or chemical strain.
