There is a lot of ignorance about the use of degassing or anti-gas low-bake powders. A good reason for Oxyplast to issue a technical handbook about these high-quality powders that are suitable for multi-metal substrates. The Ag-Kote products from Oxyplast are also the only ones in the world certified according to Qualicoat and Qualisteelcoat.
The technical manual is the result of questions from the market. Initially, released in French, the manual is also now available in English, Polish and German languages. We focus exclusively on the application range of our Ag-Kote products and take the applicator step-by-step through the process, depending on their needs. It starts with the selection of a corrosion class. In other words, the product will soon be placed in a challenging environment. The pre-treatment is determined on the basis of this and the required service life. The next step is to determine the layer thickness of the coating system; Is a 1-layer treatment sufficient or are multiple layers necessary? With multiple layers we explain which primers to use and how to use them. Finally, the different possibilities in finishing layers are described; smooth or fine structure, gloss or matt, standard or super-durable quality.
The unique thing about the Ag-Kote products from Oxyplast, is that they are applicable on all surfaces and provide greater productivity and energy gains. A common misunderstanding is that Ag-Kote low bake powders only need to be baked at low temperature. No, they can also be cured at normal temperature or at higher temperatures in a shorter time. That flexibility is not always known in the market. It does not detract from the final quality. In addition to the process, the specific properties of the Ag-Kote products are also described in the manual. This guarantees the colour fastness during the extraction process; there is no risk of colour change, even with over baking at higher temperatures. In addition, we also focus on maintenance. We describe how best to maintain the product finish. Maintenance of paintwork is often underestimated, but is an important factor.
When we talk about degassing or low-bake coatings, it is almost always about industrial quality, however the Ag-Kote products from Oxyplast are the only ones that meet the high quality standards of Qualicoat and Qualisteelcoat. That makes our product unique in the world. The technical manual can be requested free of charge from Oxyplast, both in print and digitally via: firstname.lastname@example.org
