The authors explained that this new technology has already been successfully implemented to accelerate formulations at low curing temperatures, and to increase productivity of coatings processes under forced drying conditions.
From this figure it is clear that if we want to have an acceptable film formation under forced drying conditions (approximately 60[degrees]C), the VOC levels of the coating will be unacceptably high.
Advantages: good corrosion protection; excellent gloss/UV resistance; fast drying and recoating time; good hardness development; good chemical resistance (ISO 12944); high flash point; good adhesion to coatings and metals; low dirt pick up (topcoats); high degree of flexibility; non-chalking and non-yellowing; very good water-resistance; competitive in price; and suitable for forced drying.
Thus, a primer is applied to the preheated (100-190 [degrees] F) metal part Forced drying at 190 [degrees] F for 5-15 minutes has also proven to be advantageous.
The soft-feel coating is sprayed onto the film and cured by means of forced drying at 80[degrees]C.
