News in Brief

High Solid Two-Component High Build Polyurethane Primer

A high yield is one of the features of the low-emission and environmentally friendly PercoTop VHS Power Primer 4000 from Axalta Coating Systems. The high solid two-component polyurethane primer has low VOC emissions even in a sprayable state. It can be used as a primer, a primer surfacer and a sanding filler. The product is equally well suited for aluminium, steel, iron phosphated and zinc phosphated steel or galvanised and hot dip galvanised steel. The primer has a high film build capability and high stability, which means that a single spray coat is sufficient. If required, the product can also be used as a high build filler.

Reliable Corrosion Protection for Wind Power Plants

With its water-based zinc flake coatings for anti-corrosion protection, the NOF Metal Coatings Group has become a reference partner for the automotive industry. In the meantime, NOF has also confirmed its presence in the expanding wind power sector. For example, technologies commercialised by NOF have been officially approved by companies such as Vestas, Gamesa, Alstom Wind, Acciona, Clipper Windpower and Vergnet. The Dacromet and Geomet coating systems and the Plus topcoats, which are widely used and have proven themselves in the automotive industry, provide a long-term solution for the wind energy sector and a response to its specific technical requirements. The low thickness of the coatings and their anti-corrosion protection mechanisms ensure the performance and reliability required by wind power plant manufacturers even in very aggressive, wet and saline environments — regardless of whether the coating is applied using a dip spin or spray process.

Modular Workpiece Carrier System also for Small Batches

The company Fischer-Draht has developed a modular workpiece carrier system for efficient and cost-effective parts cleaning. The size of the workpiece carrier system can be flexibly adapted to suit the requirements. That is an advantage in particular for small and medium production volumes, as tool costs in such cases are often higher than the purchase costs of the carrier systems themselves. With the new carrier system, users can largely use standard sizes and implement individual solutions for small batches with only minor adaptations. Furthermore, the modular principle has the advantage that the already existing components can be reused when products change.
