Vinyl is the “workhorse” powder coating material. Diverse applications include corrosion protection, chemical resistivity, electrical insulation, abrasion / impact resistance and Marine applications. Vinyl is typically seen on items such as dishwasher baskets, Buss Bars, patio furniture, outdoor fencing, SCUBA gear and bicycle racks (just to name a few).

Custom formulated thermoplastic powder coatings for the finishing industry.

Salt spray resistance of all properly applied and primed DURAVIN vinyls is excellent; a zinc or iron phosphated substrate, primed with the recommended DURAVIN primer, and coated with the above products will provide a durable finish showing no effect in 5,000 hours of salt spray exposure; less than 1/8″ undercutting will be observed on a scored panel exposed for 2,000 hours. Vinyl coatings, as a rule, exhibit excellent chemical resistance to acids, alkalies, alcohols, gasolines and aliphatic hydrocarbons although concentration, temperature and the nature of the chemical does have a bearing on the degree of the coating’s inertness. Vinyls are not recommended for contract with aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents or ketones.
