The substrate must be free from oil, grease and oxidation products. The pretreatment depends on the type of substrate and the corrosion protection to be achieved. We recommend the following pretreatments:

  • Chromating according to DIN EN 12487
  • Pre-anodization
  • Chrome-free pretreatment according to GSB International and QUALICOAT specifications
  • Zinc phosphating
Galvanised steel
  • Zinc phosphating
  • Chrome (III) passivation
  • Chromating according to DIN EN 12487

For white and light IGP-DURA®sky qualities, the use of IGP-KORROPRIMER 6007A90104A00 is recommended as a primer.

For improved corrosion protection for applications on steel / galvanised steel, the use of corrosion protection primer IGP-KORROPRIMER 60 is recommended.

The suitability of the pretreatment method used is generally to be tested by the coater in advance with appropriate test methods. The minimum requirement for aluminium substrates / galvanised steel components is to carry out a boiling water test with a subsequent cross-cut adhesion and tape test. We refer to the guidelines of the GSB International, Qualicoat and Qualisteelcoat certifications. For further information: see also our special leaflet on pre-treatment (IGP-TI 100).

Coating devices
All conventional electrostatic systems with corona charging.
For the construction and operation of powder coating plants, the following regulations must be complied with: ATEX RL 2014/34/EU, EN 50177, DIN EN 16985.
Recommended film thickness
50 μm - 80 μm
A homogeneous coating result with textured coatings or article-and color specific differences in hiding power may require higher coating thicknesses. The corresponding processing guidelines must be observed.
For a pre-calculation of the required powder coating quantity, the necessary coating thickness must be determined for each article.
Curing conditions
200 °C15 minutes20 minutes
210 °C12 minutes17 minutes
In order to determine ideal curing conditions, we recommend practical trials with the respective object and curing oven.

Due to e-caprolactam emissions during the curing process it is necessary to take care for a good ventilation to comply with the permitted occupational exposure limits concentrations.
Small portions of recycled powder can be added, automatically if possible, to the fresh powder. Important: Keep overspray to an absolute minimum.

Preliminary tests are mandatory for overcoating painted surfaces.

Printing and glueing
Preliminary tests are mandatory.

Protection of coated parts
Coated parts should be packed after cooling with suitable materials without plasticizers. They should be stored protected from the weather to avoid the formation of condensation and thus water spots on the coating.

The coated parts must be cleaned according to the directives RAL-GZ 632 or SZFF 61.01.

Graffiti removal
The following procedure should be observed when removing grafitti:
- The contact time of the gaffiti with the surface must be kept as brief as possible
- Preliminary tests to select a suitable graffiti remover
- Thorough rinsing of the cleaned areas with water
- The contact time of the graffiti remover with the surface must be kept as brief as possible

IGP recommendation:
- Elite 007 grafitti remover from Crous Chemicals GmbH
- Socostrip T4210P from Socomore
- Bonderite S-ST 1302 and Bonderite C-MC 400 from Henkel AG
- or a different non-abrasive cleaner

Paint removal and disposal
After use, coated goods should be supplied to the normal recycling process. The disposal methods for sludges or residual powders must be observed in accordance with the local official provisions whilst taking Waste Code “080201 Coating Powder Wastes” in accordance with the European Waste Catalogue into consideration.
