Polyester powder coatings exhibit excellent flexibility and durability with very good outdoor (UV) resistance. They represent approximately 50% of all powders used in North America today. Polyester provides smooth, thin coatings in a full range of glosses, from very high gloss (90%) to very low gloss (5%).
Polyester powder coating is designed to produce thin film coatings in the range of 1 to 4 mils and are applied by the electrostatic cold powder spray method.
Typical polyester applications include outdoor furniture, lawn and garden equipment, automobile aluminum wheels, appliance exteriors (ranges, refrigerators, etc.), Outdoor transformers, architectural aluminum extrusions, fluorescent lighting fixtures, playground equipment, and air conditioners.
