Do you have any suggestions for a chemical-resistant powder coating (preferably fluorinated) that is conductive or static dissipative and can cover stainless steel plates?
Q. Do you have any suggestions for a very chemical-resistant powder coating (preferably fluorinated) that is conductive or static dissipative? We need to cover some stainless steel plates.–M.S.
A. There are several manufacturers of high-molecular-weight thermoplastic fluoropolymers for use as chemical-resistant powder coatings. You would need to call and ask for a static-dissipative-grade system. Check out the list for thermoplastic powders in the directory at pfonline.com for the names of suppliers. By the way, I am not clear as to why you would need a fluorpolymer to get the properties you are looking for. You should ask about other systems that have the properties you want as well.
Powder coating is one of the most durable finishes that can be applied to industrial manufactured products, and offers excellent corrosion protection and is very safe because of its lack of volatile organic compounds.
I am an engineer on a large yacht build project and urgently need information and advice on choosing a finish for the aluminum deck plates in the engine room.
Question: What methods are available for removing cured powder coatings, and what are the pros and cons of these methods?
