Advantages of UV powder coating systems
UV powder coating formulations consist of:UV powder resin,Photoinitiator,Additives,Pigment / extenders.
Curing of powder coatings with UV light can be described as “the best of two worlds”. This new method makes it possible to benefit from the advantages of high cure speed and low cure temperature as well as environmental friendliness.
The main advantages of UV curable powder systems are:
- Low system costs
- Application of one layer
- Maximum powder use with overspray recycling
- Low cure temperature
- High cure speed
- Hardly any emission of volatile organic compounds
- Application of thicker coating layers (depending on pigmentation level)
- Excellent coating properties
