If the surface finish of the MDF ex-works does not meet the quality requiremens of the end product, the surface has to be sanded. This will ensure that the material has an evenly smooth surface and is free of any contaminants, minor scratches, dust, grease, etc. For more information, see IGP-TI 111.

Coating devices
All commercially available electrostatic systems, both corona and tribo charge systems.
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
80 μm - 100 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
130 °C12 minutes20 minutes
135 °C5 minutes10 minutes
150 °C4 minutes10 minutes
Due to the limited thermal conductivity, the use of infrared- (electric / gas catalytic) or convectional - infrared combined ovens is recommended.
In order to determine ideal curing conditions, we recommend practical trials with the respective object and curing oven.
The curing conditions must be carefully controlled. Powder coatings cured outside the curing window may show deficiencies in the film flexibility. Our technical customer service will advise you.
Small portions of recycled powder can be added, automatically if possible, to the fresh powder. Important: Keep overspray to an absolute minimum. Processing instruction VR214 must be observed.

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.

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.
