Originally formulated to achieve the unique requirements of the pipe industry and specifically engineered for cast profiles, PPG Powercron 160 uses proprietary chemistry that enables high film builds (greater than 6 mils) over multiple substrates and pretreatment chemistries.
PPG Powercron 160 e-coat can help castings, automotive and heavy-duty equipment manufacturers and other metal finishers gain a competitive edge in environmental compliance and product performance.
“While other anionic e-coat products are limited to specific pretreatments and substrates, PPG Powercron 160 e-coat enables coaters to provide corrosion performance over multiple pretreatments and on high-profile substrates,” said Jim Gezo, PPG Substrate Protection Systems product manager, industrial coatings. “The unique chemistry also allows these performance enhancements to be executed with a product that is lower in VOC content than other anionic technologies.”
Additional performance advantages over other anionic e-coats include cure temperatures as low as 250°F to reduce energy use and related carbon emissions, as well as excellent workability, increased exterior durability and a wide color palette.
