Dry, small particles that are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto a metal are known as powder coatings. A powder coating offers a beautiful and long-lasting surface with high resistance to heat, abrasion, and corrosion.
It is frequently used in the furniture, architectural, appliances, and automobile industries. Thermosets, thermoplastics, and UV-curable powder coatings are the three basic types of powder coatings.
In the formulation of Thermoset powder coatings, a cross-linker is used. While still delivering an appealing appearance, it offers a more durable finish than liquid paints can.
Impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other harsh weather conditions don’t have the same effect on the coating quality of powder coated products as they do on other types of coated products.
The Europe powder coatings market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
New powder coating ingredient was released by Evonik. A new multifunctional polymer additive for powder coating formulations, TEGO Powder Aid D01, was just released by Evonik. It efficiently lowers melt viscosity and encourages pigment wetting, which makes it easier to extrude powder coating formulations.
A new, multipurpose polymer additive for powder coating formulations has been created by Evonik’s Coating Additives Business Line. Called TEGO Powder Aid D01, it efficiently reduces melt viscosity while also boosting pigment wetting, which facilitates formulation dispersion during extrusion.
As the formulation dries, the lower melt viscosity also promotes improved degassing, which helps with flow and levelling and prevents pinholes in the coating. By optimising gloss development, the new additive also ensures superior DOI (Distinctness of Image) on the coated surface.
TEGO Powder Aid D01’s highly flexible application in formulations containing inorganic fillers and pigments, in addition to organic pigments like carbon black, is another benefit.
For formulators looking for a single multipurpose addition for different powder coating systems, their new product, TEGO Powder Aid D01, offers a wide range of advantages because it produces a significant effect in tiny amounts and works in synergy with other additives.
This addition is ideal for use in external applications since powder coatings containing it exhibit comparable resistance to weathering. Even at high temperatures, the alleged overbake yellowing is controllable. Without using surface-active waxes, the novel addition gives powder coating formulas these advantageous characteristics. Therefore, overcoating is also feasible without encountering any issues.
