DuPont Industrial CoatingSolutions Announces New Thermoplastic Powder Coatings

Partnership with The Thermoclad Company aims to support delivery of top-performing products.

DuPont Powder Coatings, one of the world’s leading suppliers of technologically sophisticated powder coatings systems, has partnered with Erie, Pa.-based Thermoclad Company in an initiative designed to support the delivery of top-performing products, service and value to its customers. The alliance will allow both companies to sell a new line of thermoplastic powder coatings, DuPont™ ABCITE® by Thermoclad, to the U.S. and Canadian finishing industries.

These thermoplastic powders have been specifically formulated as a tough, chip-resistant finish providing excellent corrosion and UV protection without the need for a primer. DuPont™ ABCITE® by Thermoclad can be electrostatically applied or fluid bed dipped. ABCITE® is based on DuPont™ Surlyn® resin, the same polymer used for the tough outer surface of golf balls. A few end-use applications include park and playground equipment, fence panels, balustrades, railings and light poles.

Thermoclad, the premier U.S. designer and manufacturer of custom, environmentally friendly thermoplastic powder coatings, offers a full range of polymer systems to meet customer requirements for value and performance in both fluidized bed and electrostatic spray applications. Custom color matching is Thermoclad’s specialty.
