Low Cure

Low Cure Systems are formulated for heat sensitive substrates. Products are typically formulated to cure at 250°F. Lower temperatures are possible. Powder can be applied with or without minimal substrate preheating. Products in this series will rapidly lose gloss and chalk on exterior exposure and are best suited for interior applications. These products feature excellent physical and chemical resistance properties. Typical uses include: medium density fiberboard (MDF), fiber reinforced plastic (FRP), and sheet molding compounds (SMC) Each customer's substrate and application technology must be evaluated before ordering powder.

Acrylic

Acrylic Systems have a broad formulating range and can meet many decorative application requirements. Products in this series can have increased hardness, chemical resistance, overbake resistance, and weatherability when compare to standard systems. Products can be formulated for interior and exterior applications. Contact a Keener Coatings sales representative to determine suitability for this technology.

High Temperature

High Temperature Systems are formulated to provide coating stability in elevated temperature applications. Products can be formulated for different levels of continuous or intermittent temperature exposure. Contact a Keener Coatings representative to initiate a product design for high temperature applications.

Epoxy/Polyester

Epoxy/Polyester Hybrid Systems are have a broad formulating range and can meet many decorative and functional application requirements. Products in this series will rapidly lose gloss and chalk when exposed to sunlight and are best suited for interior applications. This series has a good balance of physical properties and excellent application characterisitics. Typical uses include: automotive accessories, exercise equipment, power tools, and display racks.

Epoxy

Epoxy Systems have a broad formulating range and can meet many decorative and functional application requirements. Products in this series will rapidly lose gloss and chalk when exposed to sunlight and are best suited for interior applications. Epoxy systems can be formulated to have excellent chemical resistance and physical properties. Typical uses include: automotive underbody, corrosion resistant primers, and material handling components.

Urethane

Urethane Systems have a broad formulating range and can meet many decorative requirements for gloss, smoothness, color, and weatherability. Products in this series can be formulated for use in interior and exterior thin film applications. Most products in this seies are not suitable for high film build. Typical uses include: lighting fixtures, automotive trim, interior automotive components, and interior and exterior furniture.

Polyester

Polyester Systems have a broad formulating range and can meet many decorative requirements for gloss, physical properties, chemical resistance, color, and weatherability. Products in this seies can be used in thick film applications. Typical uses include: aluminum extrussions, playgournd equipment, agricultural equipment, and machinery.

Exterior Performance

Exterior Performance Systems are formulated to meet the requirements of the AAMA 2604 specification. Products in this series are available in medium gloss range and a wide selection of colors. Proper chrome or non-chrome pretreatment is critical to insure products will meet the 2604 specification.
