Thermoplastic Coating

Thermoplastic coating powder which has been specifically designed to provide a long lasting, tough coating for exterior applications to mild steel, galvanised steel and aluminium. It is based on an alloy of acid modified polyolefins. Therefore it is Halogen free and the combustion flumes are low in smoke and have a low toxicity index.

It is resistant to stress cracking, adverse weather conditions, detergents, salt spray and typical airborne pollutants. The coating maintains excellent adhesion to the metal substrate without the need for a separate primer. The material also provides good abrasion and impact resistance.

Thermoplastic coatings offer the ultimate protection of metal structures against corrosion, wear and tear and chemical attack. They outperform other coatings, especially in terms of extended lifetime duration, environmental impact, and the ability to protect metal in temperatures as low as -70 degrees Celsius (-94 degrees Fahrenheit).

Thermoplastic coating provides the best metal protection solution for harsh environments anywhere in the world, and delivers substantial whole life cost savings, whilst satisfying the most stringent environmental specifications i.e. risk of sand, salt or sea abrasion, or  in climates that are damp or wet for most of the time.

Thermoplastic coating offers a warm to touch feel, flexibility, harder coating, higher impact strength, higher stone chip resistance, and can be stretched by 1000% before the coating fails. Damage to the coating can be easily repaired, and has a significantly high UV resistance.
