The functional copolymer thermoplastic solution.
DURAPOL™ is the Protech Group’s alternative to nylon powder coatings, designed to meet the most demanding performance requirements. These powders are engineered using thermoplastic copolymer technology and are formulated to furnish remarkable hardness properties. DURAPOL™ powders are a high end application solution providing huge economic benefits compared to nylon based products.
How does it work?
DURAPOL™ is formulated with copolymers for higher durometer. It adheres as one coat.
- One coat system.
- Corrosion and chemical resistance.
- Superior durability

The salt spray resistance of all properly applied DURAPOL™ co-polymer powder coatings is excellent. A zinc or iron phosphated substrate, sandblasted and coated with the above product, will provide a durable finish showing no effect in 2,000 hours of salt spray exposure.
The specific chemistry of this co-polymer requires an annealing process after cool down from post heat in order to derive the ultimate hardness and physical properties. This process will occur at ambient conditions in approximately sixty days but can be accelerated as indicated below:
|7 minutes||170°F||Hot Water|
