While renowned for toughness and durability over thinner metals, powder coatings have traditionally worked less reliably on substrates with a tendency to warp like wood, as well as dense and oversized metal items that are difficult to bring up to uniform temperature. But new low-cure solutions are changing that.
The North Sea, "the shallow, northeastern arm of the Atlantic Ocean, located between the British Isles and the mainland of northwestern Europe," is one of the world's most dangerous seas with punishing weather that often batters vessels attempting to navigate its waters.
With a mission to protect and beautify the world, PPG is continually developing smarter solutions that keep us at the forefront of product compliance, sustainability and innovation.

Alongside choosing the correct coating, it is just as important to get the application process right. While PPG coatings are easy to apply, if done incorrectly, defects such as peeling and chipping, rapid wear, mud cracks, craters (fisheyes) can occur, resulting in a poor non-stick performance.
Curing is an important process to maximise the performance of fluoropolymer coatings by achieving adhesion, chemical resistance and necessary surface properties.
