One of the most important recent developments in the field of powder coatings is the introduction of powder coatings that are UV curable. This process combines the advantages of powder coating with the benefits of UV technology, opening the door to a whole new range of application opportunities. The company's line of UV curable powders, Nuvocoat®, is available in a range of colors and textures. These powders are designed to be extremely durable and are said to show excellent chemical, stain and abrasion resistance. These powders are ideal for wood and wood products such as MDF and can be applied to other heat sensitive substrates such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, sensitive metal alloys and some plastics. These powders are environmentally friendly and due to short curing cycles and low temperature requirements, they offer time, energy and space savings.
