PPC can powder coat almost any size up to 7meters long and up to 2.4m wide.
Theoretically, products can be plastic coated in almost any colour. PPC stocks green, blue, black, white, red and yellow plastics, however other colours can be ordered in large quantities if you have a large order/batch. See Plascoat PPA 571 Brochure for more colour options.
Thermoplastic coatings generally show very good wear resistance, although this is subject to the type of plastic used. In the event of wear, melting and resetting the plastic can repair the coating. The thermoplastic coating melts at around 150 – 200 degrees Celsius and scars on the surface can easily be healed with a hot air gun.
Thermoplastic powder coating thickness can achieve thicknesses greater than 200 microns via fluidised bed application, and up to 140 microns from spray application. Plastic coatings are not generally very hard, although harder coatings can be achieved with nylon plastics.
Thermoplastic coatings generally have excellent corrosion resistance subject to the type of plastic used. They usually stand up well to chemicals and solvents.
As plastic coatings can be used for a range of applications, it is best to talk to one of our technical experts about which coating would be best suited to your needs. You can contact us by filling out the Enquiry Form below, or by emailing enquiry@pilbarapowdercoating.com.au.
The difference between thermoplastic and thermosetting powder coatings, thermosetting powder coatings will chemically react during baking to form a polymer network that is much more resistant to a coating breakdown. Also thermosetting coatings do not re-melt when they are cooled after heat is re-applied.
