Powder Coatings

A durable powder coated surface can be improved with micronized wax additives that provide effective degassing, abrasion resistance, anti-blocking, and lubricity. Special surface effects that control gloss, add texture, improve corrosion resistance, and impart distinct coating structure are also possible with Micro Powders’ unique line of powder coating additives.
