Future trends in powder chemistries point to new markets for powder coating
This is the second in a three-article series that assesses various aspects of the powder coatings manufacturing industry.
It presents performance data on new types of resins and curatives, particularly replacements for triglycidyl isocyanurate [TGIC], an epoxy-based crosslinker. It also discusses acrylic powder chemistries, emphasizing hydroxy acrylic combinations. The impact of the new chemistries on the major powder coating market segments is analyzed from various viewpoints, including those of raw materials manufacturers, chemists, powder formulators, and powder end users.
