According to the company, metal finishers looking for color solutions and greener coating options can benefit from Sherwin-Williams Powdura RAL powder program. The program contains 188 solid, high gloss colors with “super durable polyester” technology, a TGIC-free polyester powder coating formulated to provide better durability and transfer efficiency than standard TGIC powders.

All RAL powder colors are matched to RAL 841 standards, the European Master Standard for color selection, and are available in 25-lb and 250-lb drum sizes with short lead times.

These colors accept and hold electrical charge better than standard TGIC powders, improving transfer efficiency by 10 percent or more, the company says.

The powders meet AAMA 2603-02 specifications for the metal building industry and are especially useful for the electronics, heavy equipment, machine tool and general metal finishing markets. Several colors can be formulated to meet NSF-51 standards for incidental food contact. Further, the liquid coatings can be custom ordered in many RAL colors to provide a range of coatings on a variety of substrates requiring both liquid and powder finishes.

Available as epoxy, hybrid, polyester and polyurethane, the manufacturer’s finishes are designed to be a protective finish that minimizes substrate defects in both interior- and exterior-use products such as office furniture, electronic cabinetry, automotive components, lawn/garden equipment and outdoor furniture.
