PITTSBURGH, April 16, 2007 -- Paint finishes have never looked so good, thanks to Bayer MaterialScience's LLC (BMS) powder coatings product line. A new brochure that highlights the company's powder coating offerings provides a thorough technical overview of BMS' CrelanŽ crosslinkers and RucoteŽ resins.
Powder coatings are growing in significance as a modern coating technology. They contain no solvents, so virtually all of the overspray can be returned to the application process. For this reason, the powder and the associated technology offer a high degree of environmental compatibility.
The brochure, Powder Coatings Intermediates, lists the properties of Crelan crosslinkers and Rucote polyester powder coatings in an easy to understand table format. The properties highlighted include functionality, baking temperature, equivalent weight, viscosity and other features.
A broad range of applications use powder coating technology. Some are found in the furniture and automotive industries, while they are also gaining popularity in the finishing of decorative metal objects, as well as being used by OEM manufacturers.
"At Bayer we are constantly providing our customers with the most up-to-date product information," said Torsten Pohl, Business Development Manager, BMS LLC "This powder coatings brochure illustrates that we are committed to providing the best and easy-to-understand product literature for the customer who needs our product to provide vital protection and appeal to the products that they manufacture."
