What is LB-SERIESTM?
LB-SERIESTM is a specially formulated thermoset powder coating solution that reduces baking temperature and curing time, thereby consuming less energy, and accelerating production.
Our experts have been developing low-bake technology for over 15 years. We continue to invest in research and development so that we can create further advancements in this series.
Why Choose LB-SERIESTM ?
Multiple factors make sure this series is a good choice:
- The baking temperatures are lower than our other series, depending on the product from 140 to 160°C. It ensures that you consume less energy, allowing your energy costs to be lower.
Your CO2 emissions will decrease, making sure the impact on the environment lowers as well.
- The curing time is shorter. Your products need less time in the oven, which increases line productivity, saves time, and reduces production costs.
- Our quality guarantee still stands: our products have the same physical and chemical properties as our ‘normal’-cure formulas.
- Our experts ensure that our products comply with specific guidelines, certifications, and accreditations. Some of our low-bake products acquired the Qualicoat label.
