Technical FAQ

 

How do I know when I have achieved the proper fluidization level?
     Proper fluidization has occurred when the powder has a boiling liquid appearance with small bubbles over the surface.

How can I achieve the proper fluidization level?
     Most powder is properly fluidized at 10-20 PSI.  Try to increase or decrease PSI in increments of 5 to achieve proper fluidization. 

What is Polyester-TGIC (Triglycidyl Isocyanureate)?
     Polyester is a type of resin that is used in the manufacturing of powder coatings.
     TGIC is a hardener that is used for polyester based powder coatings.

What applications are Polyester-TGIC (Triglycidy Isocanureate) good for?
 Poly-TGIC is a paint for most applications, exhibiting the good characteristics that other paints are specialized, for ex. Epoxy is great w/corrosion protection but not good w/ UV stabilization (fade), where Poly-TGIC is great for both.  The ease of application is another area that the Poly-TGIC ‘s exhibit.       

Polyester TGIC is a paint which can be used in many application settings. While epoxy based coatings may be corrosion resistant, they will fade as they lack ultraviolet (UV stabilization properties. Polyester TGIC is not only easy to apply, but it performs strongly as a resistant to both corrosion and fade from UV exposure.

What is the cure time and bake temperature?
   Follow the cure cycle located on the TDS. View all TDS and MSDS here.

What about holes with threads & other areas that need to stay coating free?
     High temperature masking can be applied to special surfaces such as threads or high tolerance areas to keep them from being coated.  High temperature silicone plugs and silicone caps can be used for threaded holes or shafts.                        

Can I use body filler?
     The high oven temperature makes the use of plastic and resin body fillers problematic. Often the powder will not bind to filler's surface causing bubbles in the paint. 

Why is the paint chipping after parts are painted and cured?
This is likely a result of the powder not being cured correctly. The temperature and/or cure times need to be increased to ensure the powder is fully cured.

Also, the thickness of the coating may be too high as a result of too much paint having been applied. Try turning down the voltage and/ or reducing the spray time.

Why does the color of the powder appear to be “off” after it has cured?
Examine your exhaust vents and be sure that your fans are working, MIT Powder Coatings cannot stress enough the importance of proper oven exhaust systems.
Try adjusting your bake time and/or the temperature. Cooking for either, too long or too short a time will both affect the color, as will the over temperature.
     For automatic lines try adjusting the conveyor speed to increase or decrease the bake time.
