stickiness between surfaces of different composition. Strong contact of one material with another.
an indicator of the grinding of a certain material. The ratio of each individual particle to the total mass of the substance. Important for application of powder paint.
chemicals that improve the technical characteristics of the base resin. Thanks to them, the paint is easier to apply, there are fewer defects in the coating. They can be different depending on the needs. A clear example is benzoin: it is added to degas the paint. With it, no bubbles or craters form on the coating.
substances that help to structure the molecules in the paint and contribute to the creation of a stable film. There are SP-TGIC and SP-HAA chemical systems.
or, in other words, the polymerization furnace. Equipment that provides the proper temperature for the formation of long molecular bonds and a strong film as a result of these associations between molecules. Heat up to temperature of 250C.
a closed structure made of electrically conductive material. The electric field from the outside redistributes the charges of this cage in such a way that the electric field inside disappears. The device was invented by the English physicist Michael Faraday in 1836.
one of the characteristics of adhesion. Determines the effort that must be applied to destroy the paint layer.
a substance that provides density, shine and impact resistance. Examples: calcite, talc, barium sulfate.
substances that provide color. In the production of powder paints, inorganic compounds are used: chromium oxide, titanium dioxide, etc.
substances capable of forming long molecular bonds. These include resins (the basis of powder paint), various types of plastics, rubber, and rubber.
the joining of several molecules into one under the influence of high temperature, radiation or initiator substances.
a type of polymers formed from the products of oil refining. The main component of powder paint, responsible for the formation of a strong film.
the appearance of the paint, the shape of its surface. It is divided into smooth or with the addition of different textures.
types of effects on the coating. The paint is baked with visible, but decorative and uniform deformations on the surface. In the case of moiré or antique textures, it also helps protect against scratches.
the ability to fluidize. The powder behaves like a liquid under the influence of gas. Due to fluidization, powder materials are better applied to the surface and easier to transport.
