Colorful powder coatings offer endless opportunities
My company is interested in applying some of the new color combinations offered in the marketplace, specifically ones with metallic pigments. Can you tell me if these new metallic colors offer reliable function? J.Z., Redmond, Wash.
The modification of pigments rejuvenated the use of powder applications in many areas. For instance, the use of aluminum and other types of metallic pigments offer not only a tremendous array of colors, but also significant property improvements. This can be achieved by combining the use of surface-modified aluminum flakes and photochromic surface modifications achieved by a variety of organic molecules attached to the surface-modified alumina.
