AG-KOTE™

thermoset powder coatings

The unique formulation of these coatings, as well as their ability to cure at low temperatures, allows them to coat porous substrates with virtually no cratering, pitting or air bubbling.

OVERVIEW

The anti-gassing thermoset powder solution

Outgassing is a phenomena of entrapped gasses being released through a coating during the cure process. When this gas passes through the coating, it creates craters, pinholes or air bubbles. 

These anomalies provide a path for moisture or corrosive materials through the coating and to the substrate.

AG-KOTE™ is a patented thermoset powder coating solution that minimizes the formation of craters, pinholes or air bubbles in the coating surface caused by gas or moisture released from porous substrates during curing.

AG-KOTE™ is a polyester-based coating formulated to be cured at temperatures as low as 160°C. It promotes energy savings and higher productivity without sacrificing the quality and properties of the coating.


MAIN FEATURES
  • Low temperature curing promotes energy savings and higher productivity when painting large objects.
  • Possibility to coat thin and thick material at the same time without colour and effect differences.
  • Excellent UV, chemical, and corrosion resistance.
  • Can be formulated with most Protech Group coatings.
