Description

Dry, solid, and film-forming coating powders are distinguished from liquid materials used in high-solids, water-reducible, radiation-cure, and electro-coat technologies. Three major types of coating powders are available to industrial finishers: thermoplastic, thermoset, and radiation cured. No matter which coating powder is selected for a particular application, health and safety aspects of the material to be used must be fully determined. This information should be requested from the supplier in the form of a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). It can be of great significance during the final application.
