“As powder coatings have gained awareness on being an eco-friendly alternative, we felt that it was time to introduce new products that can best cater to customers’ specific needs and at the same time offer them tangible value,” said Olaf Conreur, industrial category manager at Jotun Powder Coatings. “Also, manufacturers are now looking at the efficiencies offered by these coatings, while also assessing the design enhancements that come with the package."

Guard Miles has been designed to give OEMs and job coaters more mileage and better operating efficiencies, together with good flow and optimal protection to suit diverse needs. It offers an optimum balance of excellent aesthetic finishes, and features optimized corrosion, chemical and mechanical properties that allows protection for hot, wet and dry environments said the company.

Guard Miles+ provides better powder utilization, reduce time and cost maintenance. This new coating offers cost-effective powder applications that optimize mileage and material utilization properties. If applied with the right equipment and expertise, using Guard Miles+ powder solutions can achieve up to 30 percent reduction in powder consumption said the company.

“Today’s ever-growing demand for industrial goods has been accompanied with an increasingly high expectation for quality coatings that can offer high operating efficiencies, aesthetic properties and greater protection from daily exposure, even in the most demanding interior corrosive environments," said Conreur. "Guard Miles and Guard Miles+ have been specially designed to give more mileage and better operating efficiencies, together with optimal chemical and corrosion properties."
