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.
