DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts introduces next generation of ETFE powder coatings
August 22, 2012
DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts has introduced DuPont Teflon ETFE High Build Top Coat Powder, a next-generation product designed to achieve better chemical resistance, higher thermal stability, and is easier to apply. This offering was created for targeted applications in the chemical processing industry for parts and equipment such as vessels, columns, agitators and valves. DuPont Teflon ETFE High Build Top Coat Powder is a smart solution for coaters who require a high-build thickness for a part and are in need of a coating that can easily be applied up to 80 mils (2032 microns). Additionally, the new product is more chemically resistant than ECTFE, according to the company, in virtually all classes of compounds at higher temperatures, which offers the end user a higher margin of safety in the event that there are spikes in temperature. DuPont also offers a choice of both liquid and powder primers which allow applicators an option based on their preference and need and that improves the topcoat’s adhesion to metal surfaces. In addition to improved performance, the product is fully backed by the customer service and support available through Intech Services, which will distribute DuPont Teflon ETFE High Build Top Coat Powder.
