Posted on Friday, February 20, 2015

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 19, 2015 – PPG Industries’ (NYSE:PPG) industrial coatings business has introduced ENVIROCRON® HTE (high-transfer-efficiency) powder coating, featuring a proprietary bisphenol A (BPA)-free polyester formulation that has a fast application build rate and its designed to provide uniform coverage on complex parts and surfaces, reducing material waste.

Engineered for appliance, architectural, wire goods and extrusion applications, Envirocron HTE coating is engineered with an exclusive cross-link polymer that enables it to penetrate and apply evenly to metal parts and product assemblies with recessed cavities; odd shapes; and open, uneven or geometrically-complex surfaces such as refrigerator racks, patio tables, architectural components and other finished goods.

Envirocron HTE coating also can achieve first-pass transfer rates of 85 percent and better, which makes it ideal for spray-to-waste coatings applicators that want to reduce product loss.

Shelley Verdun, PPG powder product manager, industrial coatings, says Envirocron HTE coating is engineered to help applicators increase throughput, reduce waste and more readily achieve environmental compliance. 

Envirocron HTE coating cures in 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, and it is available in a standard formulation to meet American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2603 specifications as well as in an ultra-durable version to achieve the AAMA 2604 standard. PPG also manufactures the coating in a wide range of colors and gloss ranges.
