New PowderCoatplus(TM) Outperforms Galvanized In Salt Spray And Impact Tests
Press release date: April 10, 2002
Penco Products has developed PowderCoatplus(TM), a cost effective way of improving the durability and rust resistance of steel lockers. Powder coat paint on cold rolled steel is more rust resistant than painted electro-galvanized (EG) steel. It has the added benefits of being environmentally sound and costing less. PowderCoatplus has dramatically outperformed liquid painted EG steel in salt spray and impact tests, the most widely accepted tests of paint durability. Powder coat systems can produce an exceptionally impervious layer of paint in virtually any desired thickness without runs or drips. The paint adheres to edges better and provides an attractive appearance.
The PowderCoatplus system starts before the paint goes on. The first step in the process is a thorough pretreatment for removing lubricating oils from the steel surface to assure a lasting bond of the paint to the steel. This is followed by a 2 mil thick coating of powder coat enamel applied in a highly automated electrostatic spray booth. The final step is baking the finish to an attractive hard surface.
