Q. Joe, I have a question concerning the relationship between pretreatment chemicals (currently using a zirconium-based pretreatment in a six-stage system with an alkaline cleaner in stage one) and powder coat thickness. Can the condition of the bath play a role in how thick the dry film thickness is on a part?

Q: Good Morning Joe

I read your section in the Powder Coated Tough magazine and appreciate your knowledge and expertise. I have a couple questions about super-durables. I’ve talked with many of the leading suppliers of powder coatings and get the same answer from each one on this question. Are “true” super-durables (powder coatings to meet or exceed AAMA 2604 standards) available in all RAL colors? Each supplier tells me bright colors don’t have the color pigments available to meet AAMA 2604. In our experience, over 20 years in the powder coating industry, some suppliers abuse the term “super-durable” in my opinion. When I order powders and use the term “superdurable” I would expect it to meet a certain standard. Seems the only standard to go by is AAMA. I guess my question to you is, what is a true super-durable in the powder coating industry? I look forward to your response and again I appreciate you taking the time and your expertise. I hope you have a great week!
