Sherwin-Williams expands single-cure powder coating technology to Europe
Sherwin-Williams is introducing a new addition to its powder coating product line in EMEA. The new technology – called Powdura® OneCure™ – consists of an advanced single-cure primer and topcoat system that delivers higher quality results, energy savings and improved efficiency.
Sherwin-Williams offers a comprehensive range of high-quality powder coatings formulated to meet different industrial needs. The company is continuously investing in better solutions for industrial finishers and spends over $150 million annually on R&D. This commitment has now led to the development of Powdura OneCure.
“Powdura OneCure is a two-coat system based on an innovative powder formula that co-reacts and cross-links, without the need to gel or cure the primer. Only a single curing process is needed after application, which makes the system truly unique as it eliminates an entire step from the finishing operation. This results in both time- and energy savings and reduces the cost of the coating process”, says Dave Wright, Senior Director Marketing & Business Development, EMEA.
Powder coatings are very easy to apply, requiring a far lower operator skill level to produce an excellent finish. They are also extremely tough and durable and properties such as UV resistance, flexibility and chemical resistance can be built in. Powdura OneCure has been available in North America for the past twelve months with positive results seen from customer applications including trailers, agricultural and construction equipment, and general metal finishing.
“Powdura OneCure allows for more efficient production while offering enhanced edge coverage and great corrosion resistance. Since the technology has been designed to provide higher performance, it’s an ideal choice for demanding finishing projects that require uncompromising results, such as heavy equipment applications”, Wright concludes.
