Formulating Powder Coatings for Temperature-sensitive Substrates

On-Demand Course

Recorded on Oct 12, 2022

Design low temperature powder coatings for temperature sensitive substrates (MDF, wood, plastics…) while meeting both physical (adhesion/impact resistance...) & aesthetical (smoothness/gloss versatility…) properties requirements at minimal cost.

Leading expert, Veronica Reichert will lay light on:
  • Advantages and limitations of low temperature cure powder coating systems
  • Raw materials selection, processing conditions and application issues
  • Formulation best practices for each type of curing (thermal or UV cure)

Why should you view this course?

Due to the clear advantages (negligible VOCs, cost-efficiency, energy savings…) of powder coatings over liquid coatings, their demand in the industry is increasing with a predicted 7% growth between 2019 and 2025. However, formulating powder coatings for temperature-sensitive substrates (MDF, wood, plastics…) is a tricky business.

You must have a strong understanding of precise processing conditions, application issues & right raw materials. Without which, you might miss out on achieving the desired coating properties (physical, aesthetical and chemical) in your low cure systems at minimal cost. Join this course to:

  • Understand how to formulate low temperature cure powder coatings by in-depth reviewing its underlying science, film formation and cure chemistry.

  • Shorten your R&D time and swiftly shift to low temperature and UV curable powder coatings by understanding the chemical reactions involved in cure, impact of resin properties on final coating performance, effect of catalysts, etc.

  • Learn how to tackle problems like orange peel, roughness, poor spray pattern, which raw materials to choose, cure conditions (thermal and UV cure options) and more.
