Low Cure


PPG offers two generations of low-cure powder coatings that include epoxy, polyester TGIC, epoxy-polyester hybrid, polyester-acrylic hybrid and superpolyester resin systems.  With smooth finish quality and resistance to orange-peel effect, low-cure powder coatings offer a range of gloss options and special finishes.  They can be adjusted to accommodate heavy mass parts and castings.

Best of all, low-cure powders can save 15 to 30 percent in production costs as compared to normal cure products through:
  • Energy savings derived from reduced oven temperatures
  • Increased productivity and faster line speeds due to quicker cure rates
  • Manufacturing flexibility and efficiency in allowing variable oven heat-up times for different applications
