INFRALIT EP 8027-00
- Powder coating
INFRALIT EP 8027-00 is a powder coating based on epoxy resin, which at elevated temperatures melts, cures and forms the final paint film.
Used for product coating within the metal industry, e.g. for lighting fixtures, apparatuses, furniture, shop outfittings, 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.
|Practical spreading rate||4 - 15 m²/kg depending on the film thickness|
|Curing time||10 min/200°C (metal temperature)|
|Packages||15 kg or 20 kg according to the specific gravity of the powder.|
|Safety markings||See safety data sheet. The powder itself is non-flammable, but with air it can form an explosive mixture that in presence of adequate ignition energy ignites. The lower explosive limit for epoxy powder is about 60 g/m³ (Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung). Ventilation of the spray booth should be adjusted so that the concentration of powder in the air is less than 50% of the lower explosive limit value. On calculation of the powder concentration in the spray booth, the powder deposited on the workpiece is not taken into account. In order to avoid the discharge of powder from the booth into adjacent working spaces, the speed of air flow in the apertures of the booth must not fall below 0.5 m/s. Spray painters should wear dust masks and protective gloves. Any spatter of powder on the skin should be washed off with water and soap.|
