INFRALIT PE 8316-11
- Powder coating
INFRALIT PE 8316-11 is a TGIC-free powder coating based on solid polyester resin. At elevated temperature the powder will melt, cure and form 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. INFRALIT PE 8316-11 forms a film with mechanical and chemical resistance and good anticorrosive properties. The surface has good gloss retention even in outdoor conditions. Hiding power of the powder coating is good even with challenging colours. The most suitable film thickness for each field of application must be defined case-specifically by test applications. For very demanding objects a white or light yellow primer can be used if necessary to maximize the hiding power. APPROVALS: EN 45545-2:2013+A1:2015 Fire protection on railway vehicles. Requirement sets R1, R7, R10 & R17 - Hazard levels HL1, HL2 & HL3. NFPA 130:2020 Standard for Fixed Guideway Transit and Passenger Rail Systems, Chapter 8 - Vehicles - ASTM E 162:2016 Standard Test Method for Surface Flammability of Materials Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source - ASTM E 662:2017 Standard Test Method for Specific Optical Density of Smoke Generated by Solid Materials
|Practical spreading rate
|6 - 10 m²/kg depending on the film thickness.
|10 min/180°C (metal temperature)
|15 kg or 20 kg according to the density of the powder.
|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 explosion limit of typical powder coatings is between 20 g/m³ and 80 g/m³ (CEPE, Safe Powder Coating Guideline 8th Edition, 2020). 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.
