Nor-Maali´s high volume solids polyurethane coating Normafine 40 HS – faster drying at lower temperatures

23/11/2022

Painting process cost reduction is currently being considered in many industrial paint shops. How to save energy without compromising quality and speed? Painting costs can be influenced by e.g. with the drying temperature of the paint and the number of layers of the painting system. The right product choice is therefore a very important part of the overall cost of the process. In a problematic energy situation, Normafine 40 HS is a cost-effective option for both topcoat and direct-to-metal coating.

Faster drying at lower temperatures

Many operators are currently trying to reduce the painting costs, e.g. by lowering the temperature of the paint shop and reducing the use of ovens.

Normafine 40 HS dries fast both at room temperature and at lower temperatures. The product works even at 0 °C. The surface of Normafine 40 HS is hard enough to be packed the next morning after painting. The need for touch-up painting is reduced.

Direct-to-metal coating for C3 corrosivity category

One way to reduce painting costs is to change the painting system of several layers of paint to a single-coat system. In this case too, Normafine 40 HS offers the user an important advantage.

Normafine 40 HS contains anti-corrosion pigments and can be used as a direct-to-metal coating in corrosivity categories C2-C3. The product meets as a single coat the corrosion class requirements of C3-M with a 120 µm DFT. In addition to the anticorrosion properties, Normafine 40 HS offers good weather resistance as a polyurethane coating. In epoxy-polyurethane systems, Normafine 40 HS is used with an epoxy primer in corrosion categories C2-C5.

A cost-effective polyurethane coating for the painting process

The painting properties of Normafine 40 HS are very good and the coating is easy to spray. The spray fan is even and during the spraying forming of dry spray is minimal. It is easy to spray high film thicknesses with Normafine 40 HS (160 μm DFT).

If you are looking for a cost-effective high volume solids semi-gloss polyurethane coating, you have found it: Normafine 40 HS is designed for general steel structures and machinery and equipment. The product works even in more challenging conditions and guarantees a reliable end result.
