PPG Industrial Powder Coatings
Powder coatings are an environmentally friendly coating solution offering superior performance for applications which require maximum abrasion resistance and hardness.
All PPG powder coating formulas are economical and backed by unmatched experience, technology and technical service. PPG is committed to developing world-class quality and environmentally friendly products.
The reasons why Off Road Downunder Pty Ltd will only use powder coat instead of the out-dated gold or silver zinc plating.
We have upgraded our products instead of the cheaper zinc plating process, to produce a product that is aesthetically pleasing, and provides a durable uniform finish. Off Road Downunder’s powder coating process as listed below;
Off Road Downunder – Powder Coating Processes:
All products begin with the process of being sandblasted to clean & prepare sheet metal to ensure adequate adhesion for the Zinc Rich Epoxy Primer. Once primer is added it is top coated in the durable Graphite Ripple powder coat.
