Powder coatings on heat sensitive substrates is becoming a key technology advancement due to cost, performance, environmental & design flexibility .. Read more benefits. Testing procedures are not well established and in this presentation we are summarizing the important properties that are key for this technology to succeed. We will provide test methods for physical and chemical performance in conjunction with tests required by associations involved such as KCMA, BIFMA & NEMA. In addition to the tests involving the coating performance, we will discuss tests such as moisture permeability and flexibility with some history over the past 20 years. The purpose of these tests, their importance in their end use performance will be presented. Knowledge of these tests will provide customers a great level of confidence with their product in the field. Additionally this will also help us in standardizing test methods for this industry in the long run.
