First automatic plant in the world that paints three-dimensional items with UV-curing powder coatings & UV-curable Powder Coatings to be applied on metal
Powder coating (and the relevant commercial advantages) has been used for more than 50 years with great economic and ecological improvements. Its application technology has continuously developed, reaching a level that nowadays allows obtaining colour changes – therefore, internally cleaning the booth – in only 90 seconds.&
Effects of Key Variables on Retortability, Flexibility and Other Physical Properties of Uv-Curable Cationic Epoxide Coatings. II
Coatings for metal packaging must maintain adhesion and not crack while the metal is bent andstretched during can formation. Food can coatings must withstand retort processing which occurs after filling (1) and most beer can coatings must withstand pasteurization. UV-curable cationic coatings containing cycloaliphatic epoxide resins are used in rig
