Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, is pleased to introduce the next generation in coil spring coatings. Alesta Spring Black is a new hybrid epoxy powder coating designed to offer flexibility and mechanical resistance as well as superior corrosion resistance.

In addition to enhanced corrosion, impact and stone chip resistance, Spring Black is formulated to enable a vehicle’s coil suspension system to adapt to changing road conditions while supporting the weight of the vehicle. The product technology enables the coil suspension system to perform without compromising the integrity of the coating, which is designed as a one-layer system. A high build in the coating’s thickness contributes to an enhanced appearance, the company says.

Spring Black has a low curing temperature at 150°C/302°F, which minimizes thermal stress on the spring and reduces energy cost. The coating is said to cover more surface area faster because of its high transfer efficiency, saving more powder consumption per square meter.
