Temadur Paints Shorten Lead Times in Production

October 29, 2013

Tikkurila Oyj’s range of industrial coatings has been extended with new fast-drying single-coat polyurethane paints. The Temadur SC-F series have shorter drying times than the previous Temadur SC series.

The new Temadur paints contain anti-corrosive pigments and are therefore ideal for use as single-coat paints e.g. for agricultural machinery and earth-moving equipment, frameworks and other steel structures, in which a high standard of aesthetic appearance is required. The recommended dry film thickness of 120µm with one coat will provide excellent weather and abrasion resistance. The Temadur SC-F series of paints are recommended for steel surfaces blast cleaned to preparation grade Sa2½, or for surfaces primed with Temadur 20, Temacoat GPL-S Primer or Temanyl PVB from Tikkurila.

Some of Tikkurila’s customers have already replaced their old Temadur paints with new ones. The most distinct advantages of this change are that the oven temperature can be decreased when force dried, and the drying time is much shorter than before. Faster lead times will generate cost savings in production. The goal of Tikkurila's R&D team was especially to shorten the drying times of painted products.

The new Temadur SC-F series of paints are available in three gloss grades: semi-matt, semi-gloss and glossy. They can be tintedto the shades of the RAL, NCS, SSG, BS, Monicolor Nova and Symphony colour cards by using Tikkurila's advanced Temaspeed Premium tinting system.
