Powder coating polycarbonate and its process


(1999)

I am looking for info on powder coating plastics. Is there a low cure powder out there that will work on polycarbonate. If so what would the process require? I presently manage a plastic painting operation and would like to take it to the next level. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

THANK YOU

Powder coating on plastics and such is not uncommon. I have a client who is powder coating fiberglass braces with polycarbonate inlay. There are many low cure (200-220 deg. F) powders out there today but high gloss is still a problem - for most.

The first determination is the temperature your substrate can withstand before causing problems. After that is taken care of we can find the right powder and process for your application. Contact Morton powder coating and Forest Paints (Eugene Or.) for more information on low cure powder coats.
