Technical Data for Urethane Powder Coatings
Peridium® Urethane cured polyester powder coatings offer excellent application and performance characteristics. Peridium®'s tightly controlled particle size distribution provides extremely good first pass transfer efficiencies and edge coverage, along with the smoothest film available. Urethane powder coatings exhibit excellent gloss retention and long term resistance to humidity and corrosion in thin film applications (less than 3 mils DFT).


- Recommended cure schedule is 10 minutes @ 390°F, peak metal temp.
- The cure range for Urethane powder is from 20 minutes at 380°F to 7 minutes at 400°F peak metal temperature.
Faster cure formulations are available.

Storage and Handling: Peridium® powder coatings should be stored at normal room temperatures and humidities (less than 80°F and 50-60% RH). Shelf life will be approximately 6 months to over a year depending on storage conditions. Always rotate inventories to ensure trouble-free powder application. When storage conditions are not the same as the application area, allow a 24-hour acclimation period within the application area to prevent moisture condensation in the powder. Always protect virgin and reclaimed powder from excessive heat and humidity.
Industrial Hygiene: Powder handling should always be done in conjunction with proper dust collection and personal protective equipment. Please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for more detailed information.
