The e-book, created by the IFS Architectural Team, covers a wide range of topics pertinent to high-performance powder for architectural applications. These include the different types of powder coating, the environmental advantages of powder and achieving LEED points, powder for steel, liquid Fluoropolymers vs. powder Fluoropolymers, powder for interiors, what to watch out for when writing a powder spec and much more.
“The IFS Architectural team works closely with architects, designers and specifiers on a daily basis,” IFS President Glynn Mason said. “The e-book covers some of the most common questions asked and information desired by design professionals, and utilizes on the extensive experience of our architectural experts.”
The e-book covers everything from choosing the right type of powder for the end user, the incredible performance capability of high-performance powders, how powder will meet and exceed the performance requirements of the coating specs through to specification and application.
“There are many myths about powder coatings, especially high-performance powders. Powder is such a generic term – there are many different types of powder with such different performance capabilities,” Mason said. “Our team always points out that though it is all ‘powder coating,’ the powders used on domestic appliances are very different to the powders used for the curtain wall of enormous skyscrapers! This e-book helps explain why this is and provides all the info design architects need to choose high-performance powders for applications like curtain wall, façade and windows, as well as the product types suited to interior applications.”
