PuroplazIFS Coatings recently launched IFS Puroplaz PE16, a tough thermoplastic modified polyolefin powder coating that delivers the unique combination of incredible hardness and excellent flexibility, along with very high adhesion properties.

Technical excellence is key in this exciting formulation and Puroplaz PE16 delivers a Shore D Hardness of 60, extremely high gravelometer performance as well as outstanding impact and abrasion resistance.

Tim Brinner, vice-president of Thermoplastics at IFS Coatings, explains “This PE16 formula has a rare combination of hardness and flexibility. These attributes are normally codependent with a trade off in one for gains in the other. The brand-new formulation overcomes this which makes it ideal for products that will be post formed after coating, such as fence wire weaving, that also require excellent abrasion resistance. It can be used to replace nylon coatings in certain applications.”

Puroplaz PE16 is suitable for a wide range of applications, including woven wire fence, fence poles, baskets, battery boxes, agricultural implements, automotive springs, water pipe and fittings, petroleum pipe (OD) and fittings, and foot traffic areas.

Puroplaz PE16 is available in both spray and dip grade formulations and is formulated without the use of PVC, Phthalates or BPA.
