PPG ENVIROCRON® HeatSensePowder for Wood. Perfected.

Engineered to complement the latest advances in low-bake cure technology, PPG Envirocron HeatSense coatings enable manufacturers of wood products to realize the sustainability benefits of powder coatings while producing goods with the greater toughness and durability that powder coatings typically provide.

A game changer

Powder coatings have long been renowned for their toughness, durability and sustainability when used over metal, but the technology has worked less reliably over wood. Thanks to recent advancements in low-bake technology, we are pleased to offer PPG Envirocron HeatSense powder coatings for heat sensitive wood and wood-composite substrates.

These coatings — coupled with a perfected, strictly regimented application and curing process — overcome the traditional barriers to powder coating wood. The result is a tough, durable coating that delivers clear advantages over competing finishing technologies in sustainability, aesthetics and functionality.

Curing and application process:

Step 1: Preheat the substrate

  • Temperature range 150-250˚ F (66-121˚ C)
  • Dwell time 5-10 minutes
  • Substrate dimensions and type dictate conditions

Step 2: Powder application

  • Standard powder spray guns
  • Film thickness of 4mm or more, enough to form a continuous film
  • Film thickness uniformity has to be controlled

Step 3: Powder cure

  • Temperature range 250-350˚ F (121-177˚ C)
  • Dwell time 5-10 minutes
  • Substrate dimensions and type dictate conditions

Envirocron HeatSense typical substrates:

  • Hardwood (HW)
  • Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF)
  • High-Density Fiberboard (HDF)
  • Oriented Strand Board (OSB)
  • Plywood
  • Particle Board

Envirocron HeatSense typical uses:

  • Office furniture
  • Cabinetry and casework
  • Building and construction
