The low-bake thermoset powder coating solution.
Manufacturers recognize the impact that product materials and processes, including coating finishes, have on energy consumption and the environment. Businesses are also aware of the impact of rising energy prices and the challenges of ongoing availability and supply, which means finding new ways of working in a world that cares more about its future.
LB-SERIES™ is a specially formulated thermoset powder coating solution that reduces baking temperature and curing time, thereby consuming less energy and accelerating production.
LB-SERIES™ is a unique system where curing temperatures are roughly 20 to 30°C lower (between 140°C and 170°C), cutting energy consumption and costs up to 25%. Adapting LB-SERIES™ also improves productivity with an average 20% faster cure time.
- Significantly less energy consumption translates to energy cost savings.
- Lower impact on the environment, supporting corporate sustainability objectives.
- Increased line productivity and time savings, creating greater efficiencies and delivering lower costs.
- No compromise on the physical or chemical properties of the current coating formulation.
- A broad range of stock colors and textures are readily available.
- Free cost-saving calculations are available through our experts.
- Can be combined with some other Protech Group coating features.
