ICO Polymers in the Asia Pacific region has many years experience in producing powders for the Fluidised Bed industry.
The process fluidises a large volume of the powder using compressed air. This changes the physical properties of the bed of powder to allow the pre heated metal article to pass through powder with no resistance.
It is essential that an even layer forms on the metal, resulting in a smooth coating. To ensure this, a quality grind is required by the industry and over the years LDPE resins have been used as well as LLDPE resins with blends to suit specific applications.
ICO Polymers can supply these high quality powders as well as grades which incorporate special additives :
- UV stability for outdoor use such as electric fence posts
- Adhesion modified grades for extra hard wearing applications
- Additional high heat resistance for dishwasher baskets
These grades are available in Black and White and can be produced in other colours to meet customers special requirements.
