Powder Coatings

High Transfer Efficiency

Specifically designed for tricky parts and equipment such as wheels, wire racking, metal shelving and products with complex shapes, EnvirocronHigh Transfer Efficiency (HTE) powder coatings provide excellent adhesion and durability, even in hard-to-reach places. Boasting first-pass transfer rates of 85% or greater, Envirocron HTE powder can reduce your per-tiem powder consumption up to 50%, lowering your material costs. PPG's HTE powder was developed with exclusive cross-link polymer technology that enables it to penetrate and adhere evenly to metal parts with recessed cavities.

Reduced oven temperature

Improved wrap

Increased transfer efficiency

HTE powder coatings have been tested to reduce oven temperatures by 10% HTE powder coatings make it easier to cover complex shapes like racking, angular or tubular parts, wheels or fenching HTE powders can reduce material usage 25-50% by increasing first-pass transfer efficiencies
