Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, announced the expansion of its global product portfolio to include Abcite, a thermoplastic powder coating formulated for toughness, durability and outstanding corrosion protection, without the need of a primer. Abcite offers lasting performance for a wide variety of industrial and exterior applications, including outdoor furniture, light poles, playground equipment, offshore vessels, railings and stairways, water transportation pipes and valves and fittings. Another advantage of Abcite for customers is the ability to absorb impact and remain intact over many years, even in demanding conditions such as permanent contact with water and very low temperatures. Abcite thermoplastic powder coatings have been tested and certified by external institutes according to recognized standards for corrosion protection, such as ISO12944-6. Tests have confirmed that a single layer of Abcite provides and even surpasses the corrosion protection level usually achieved by a three to five layer liquid paint system. All of these attributes are available in a sustainable powder coating technology with no VOC emissions or targeted HAPs. Abcite is available worldwide.
