Canadian Finishing and Coatings Manufacturing

December 9th, 2021

CFCM Interpon W Range 400AkzoNobel has launched Interpon W, a range of powder coating solutions that can transform how designers and manufacturers work with heat-sensitive substrates (HSS) such as wood and plastic.

Interpon W was developed in AkzoNobel’s Global Competence Center for powder on heat-sensitive substrates in Como, Italy. The Interpon W performance has already been proven through partnerships with several Interpon customers in the company’s regional hubs and close cooperation with line manufacturers.

Bringing benefits beyond physical attraction and sustainability as standard, Interpon W is not a single product but rather a range of powder coatings that include the Interpon W Core, Flex Pro, Fast and Fast Pro. They are improved by design so that even the most challenging shapes and substrates can be given a seamless, consistent finish and all-around protection.

They enable furniture, kitchen and bathroom products or building and construction materials to be protected and enhanced in minutes.

The Interpon W range utilizes various innovations to achieve results. These include ultra-low bake technologies that deliver indoor and outdoor products with chemical, scratch, liquid and heat resistance. They also include a lower thermal curing process that offers even higher weatherability and gloss retention for the more challenging applications. These innovations are used for Interpon W Core and Interpon Flex Pro.

The technology behind the Interpon W Fast and Interpon W Fast Pro powder coatings takes advantage of AkzoNobel’s capabilities in UV curing. UV curing systems combine the lowest temperature curing range (80-120 degrees Celsius) with the shortest curing time (2-5 minutes) to deliver optimal efficiency.

The full range allows materials such as MDF/HDF, Plywood, OSB, Natural Wood, Gypsum Board/Plasterboard, Fibre cement and plastic composites to benefit from a powder coating that is free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and have high utilization of material - up to 99% - with any overspray able to be recycled. And being a powder coating, all sides can be coated at once, ensuring consistent edge coverage and reduced re-working time. This process also reduces the cost per unit.

Daniela Vlad, Managing Director of Powder Coatings at AkzoNobel, says the company is committed to continuous innovation: “Through innovation and worldwide market development, we are creating solutions that are transforming the potential of low cure powder coatings, and taking sustainable solutions and business performance to new heights.

Daniela adds that the ‘Safe and Easy’ process has been introduced to ease the transition to new technologies: “We know that switching to new technologies may come with uncertainty which is why our dedicated teams will support you in making a Safe and Easy choice for your business.”

“In close cooperation with a global network of powder coating line manufacturers, we will help you from start to finish in creating and implementing a fully-operational coating line. This includes understanding the products and processes required and the financial benefits you can expect. It also includes supporting you with staff training and smooth integration between the powder and coating line.”

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart.
