What is TGIC?
TGIC = Triglycidyl Isocyanurate
Triglycidyl Isocyanurate is a cross-linking agent that is used in polyester powder coating binder systems commonly found in North America.
TGIC coatings are highly versatile and can be applied to various substrates such as stainless steel and aluminum. They provide excellent abrasion resistance as well as excellent UV and corrosion protection. Normally applied at a film thickness ranging between 2-5 mils (50-125 microns), These coatings are available in the full gloss range and can be formulated in various textures.
