OXYPLAST FF160 is a thermosetting powder coating based on epoxy and polyester resins. It is formulated to give a glossy or satin finish having very good flow-out, overbake yellowing resistance and mechanical properties. The outstanding decorative and protective properties of FF160 are utilised in a wide range of indoor applications.
GLOSS AND COLOUR RANGE
Gloss levels range from satin to high gloss: 50-95% at 60⁰. A full colour range is available.
Include home domestic appliances eg. Refrigerators & microwave ovens, home and office furniture, electrical trunkings, light fixtures, shelving, machinery, etc
May be applied by electrostatic spraying using classic devices which can provide a negative tension of 60 - 80kV. The powder is cured in a suitable convection or infra-red oven. Curing: Medium cure 10 mins at 180⁰C (metal temperature) Optimal film thickness: 60 - 80µm
SUBSTRATES AND PRE-TREATMENT
May be applied to the following substrates after the appropriate cleaning and conversion coating:
Ferrous metals (cold-rolled steel, cast iron, etc.) : Iron or zinc phosphatation
Zinc surfaces (galvanised steel, zinc alloy) : Chromatation or zinc phosphatation
Aluminium alloys : Chromatation
At temperatures not exceeding 30⁰C and under dry conditions, FF160 powders may be stored for up to 6 months without affecting their free-flowing properties. The coating thus obtained will still have optimal characteristics
PROPERTIES OF THE POWDER
Melting range (Kofler) : 70 - 105⁰C
Specific gravity (DIN 55990/3) Particle size distribution, : 1.25 – 1.75 (depending on colour)
