Sherwin-Williams offers two coating products in its Powdura line: the OneCure dry-on-dry coating system for heavy equipment and metal finishing, and the Sprint resin-based powder coating system for medium-density fiberboard (MDF).

OneCure is a two-coating, one-cure system, providing formulated primers and top coats that have the ability to co-react and cross link for a seamless finish with high-quality aesthetics and durability. The mono bake system offers a high performance alternative to conventional two-bake powder primer and topcoat systems. This enables finishers to reduce energy use, labor and maintenance costs while increasing throughput.

Ideal for finishing applications in the furniture, kitchen cabinet and general finishing markets, the Sprint coating system provides a high-quality finish at cure temperatures as low as 250°F. The process requires fewer coats than competitive powder coating products, increasing line speed by as much as 40 percent. The finish’s stain and moisture resistance properties make it an effective alternative to traditional liquid and laminate coatings. Sprint is available in a range of solid colors as well as smooth and texture finishes.
