PPG ENVIROCRON HeatSense Powder Coatings
Engineered to complement the latest advances in low-temperature cure technology, PPG Envirocron HeatSense coating is formulated to overcome the barriers that have traditionally prevented powder coatings from being a viable option for the wood-finish market. The coating can cure in as few as five minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, be applied uniformly over heat-sensitive substrates and accommodate the shrinking and swelling of wood over the finished product's lifetime.
The coating encapsulates the substrate with a smooth, durable finish, providing a moisture barrier and allowing freedom of design not possible with laminated coatings. When applied and cured properly, PPG Envirocron HeatSense coating enables wood manufacturers to finish their products in a broad range of colors, textures, special effects and antimicrobial*-protected coating options, such as PPG SILVERSAN® coatings.
Used in a one- or two-coat process, PPG Envirocron HeatSense coating can be cured quickly in a convection or infrared (IR) oven and is fully reclaimable, allowing for cost-effective and efficient production. In addition, the coating is formulated without volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous materials. It has an overall low carbon footprint when compared to solvent-based paints, stains and laminates.
