"Powder paint curing problems"
#1. We have some complicated bent parts to be powder painted, we are facing problems of under coating in the not easily accessible areas. Ours is CORONA type gun.
#2. What should be the curing temperature for "textured finish" powder.
#3. We want to know the availability of low temperature curing powders ?
addendum Jan. +:
We are looking for a "Powder Paint with low curing temperature" to reduce power cost. We require a commercial quote globally.S.V.Nanda

First thing you should be using Tribo Guns not Corona.
The curing temp for texture finishes will vary from one powder to the next. I would try 400 to 425 F for 20 to 30 minutes.
Low temp cure powders are available from most if not all powder manufacturers.

First of all, if you cannot use a tribomatic gun turn the kV down on your gun, alternatively you could try to pre-heat your substrate.
Curing temps for texture powder coatings vary from 160 deg. C x 10 mins to 220 deg. C, dependent on the system.
You can get powder coatings that are able to crosslink at 140 deg C x 12 mins. Alternatively you could assess the possibility of UV cured powder coatings. These powders are available from most major powder producers.Drew
