Despite the size of agricultural machinery and construction equipment (including forklifts, trailers, trucks, forrest, snow, mining equipment and machinery) as well as the parts of equipment being coated, the powder coating process can be carried out in an industrial environment by assembling several components in advance. With the composite construction often found in this industry, a broad range of parts made of substrates such as aluminum, steel and galvanized steel are used.
Depending on the equipment end use, TIGER Drylac® polyester-based powder coatings are recommended for aluminum substrates. For steel parts; threatened by corrosion, a TIGER Shield two-coat system is recommended (the system comprises a corrosion-protecting powder primer and a TIGER Drylac® polyester powder top coat). The application of fillers for the removal of substrate defects can generally be relinquished with the use of TIGER Drylac® powder coatings. Due to the high coating thickness achieved compared to liquid top coats, coverage is significantly better.
Optimal quality characteristics, in particular the high mechanical resistance and excellent edge protection, can be realized by applying even a single-coat system.
