Description

INTRODUCTION

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.

APPLICATIONS

Include home domestic appliances eg. Refrigerators & microwave ovens, home and office furniture, electrical trunkings, light fixtures, shelving, machinery, etc

APPLICATION SCHEDULE 

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

STORAGE

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)
