HTE Powder Coatings Take Coverage to the Next Level

Comments Off on HTE Powder Coatings Take Coverage to the Next Level

One of the most notable appeals of powder coating is that it generates less waste due to a high material utilization rate. First, unlike liquid paint which is always a spray-to-waste process, powder overspray can be reclaimed and recycled, depending on the capabilities of the coater, the number of colors utilized, the absence of contaminants […]

Benefits and Limitations of Powder Coating

Comments Off on Benefits and Limitations of Powder Coating

Powder coating is a dry finishing process in which free-flowing, thermoplastic or thermoset powder material, rather than a liquid suspension, is applied to a surface, melted, and then allowed to dry and harden into a protective coating. Typically, the powder is applied via electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) to an electrically grounded metal substrate. Once the […]

Powder Coating Bonderized Steel

Comments Off on Powder Coating Bonderized Steel

Bonderized steel consists of hot dipped galvanized steel (G90 grade) that is pretreated with a phosphate followed by a chromate sealer and dried off in an oven. The process produces a dull, gray-colored finish. Bonderized is commonly referred to as “Paint Grip.” This product is commonly used for roofing, wall panels, and coil. As for […]

CARC Paint Storage is Different than Every Day Paint Protection

Comments Off on CARC Paint Storage is Different than Every Day Paint Protection

Military vehicles, equipment, ships and aircraft are all exposed to extreme conditions. For the U.S. Armed Forces, only military grade paints that meet stringent military standards are suitable for these conditions. Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC) are well-known military grade paints. Products meeting this specification resist the penetration of chemical agents and require special storage. […]

Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC)

Comments Off on Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC)

1. BACKGROUND. CARC is a coating system that provides surfaces that are easily and effectively decontaminated after exposure to liquid chemical agents. There are three types of coatings in the CARC system: an epoxy polyamide primer, an aliphatic polyurethane paint (PUP), and epoxy polyamide enamel. Each of the coatings is supplied as a two-component system. […]

DESCRIPTION OF CARC

Comments Off on DESCRIPTION OF CARC

The US military relies on paint to achieve a variety of visual and mechanical effects, ranging from camouflage to unit identification to the protection of metal surfaces. CARC-painted surfaces resist the absorption of chemical warfare agents, making decontamination much easier to accomplish. Chemical agent resistant coatings—CARC—make up the largest category of paints applied to the […]

Chemical Agent Resistant Coating

Comments Off on Chemical Agent Resistant Coating

Chemical Agent Resistant Coating is a paint commonly applied to military vehicles to provide protection against chemical and biological weapons. The surface of the paint is engineered to be easily decontaminated after exposure to chemical warfare and biological warfare agents. The paint is also resistant to damage and removal by decontaminating solutions. Two-component systems (e.g. […]

CARC Paint

Comments Off on CARC Paint

CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) is a paint used on military vehicles to make metal surfaces highly resistant to corrosion and penetration of chemical agents. Inhaling CARC during the painting and drying process can be harmful. Dry CARC poses no hazards, except during welding or sanding. If you are concerned about exposure to CARC paint […]

What is the Powder Coating Process?

Comments Off on What is the Powder Coating Process?

The powder coating process is a dry painting process that is mainly used for coating metal. There are several methods for applying powder coating. The most commonly used method is spraying electrostatically charged particles of pigment and resin onto an electrically grounded piece. Heat is used to melt the powder, causing it to flow, form […]
