PolyX®

PolyX® has been specifically designed to provide a long lasting, tough coating for exterior applications to mild steel, galvanized steel and aluminum. It is based on an alloy of acid modified polyolefins. Therefore it is halogen free and the combustion fumes are low in smoke and have a very low toxicity index. PolyX® is resistant to stress cracking, adverse weather conditions, detergents, salt spray and typical airborne pollutants. The coating maintains excellent adhesion to the metal substrate without the need for a separate primer. The material also provides a good degree of electrical insulation, abrasion and impact resistance. PolyX® is normally applied by the fluidized bed process, but it can also be applied by flock-spray or flame spray techniques. The flame spray method uses extremely high temperatures and therefore care should be taken to avoid degradation of the powder during application.
