Powder Coat PVC
Q. Has anyone figured out away to powder coat PVC? It is being done on wood now, with a lower melting temp than PVC?? Thanks for any info. D. G.
A. First of all, wood does not melt—it burns. Second, the melt point of PVC is much lower than the cure or melt temperature of PVC. So the answer to your question is simple—NO!!!
Metal fabricators that laser-cut with oxygen take steps to prepare parts better for powder coating.
Infrared cure is gaining increased attention from coaters as a result of shorter cure cycles and the possibility of smaller floor space requirements when compared to convection oven curing.
This alternative to TGIC-based polyester powder coatings offers similar performance and enhanced transfer efficiencies.
