Powering up powder coating resins

Even though we invented powder-based coating technology some 60 years ago, the team behind it shows no signs of slowing down. For years, this resin technology toolbox has enabled metal and other man-made substrates to be cured faster, more efficiently and at lower temperatures, with less waste - and all while delivering outstanding durability and aesthetics – across a wide range of different segments.

Then, our bright minds came up with a completely new zero-VOC technology that brings those same benefits to wood and MDF – opening up a whole new world of opportunities. Our family of powder-based resin technology is one of the most innovative and progressive technologies in the entire coatings industry. Which is why we appreciate a growing customer base that continues to join us in exploring the power of powder.

  • Energy efficient

    With lower curing temperatures.

  • Sustainable

    Low-to-no VOCs.

  • Efficient

    Via a one-coat system with fast drying time.

  • Tough & durable

    Excellent resistance over time.

  • Aesthetics

    Looks and feels great.

"We’re working closer than ever with customers here in the United States to define precisely which formulations work today, but also further down the road. The powder coating business can be complex, but we try to make it simple. We ask customers what they really want…and there’s a very good chance that the DSM team can make it happen.

In everything from the development of CORRES corrosion resistance in marine applications to ACE and automotive, to the latest Powder-in-Mould technology, we are innovating, day-by-day, hand-in-hand with our customers."

"Right now, we have probably 70 different formulations being synthesized and perfected. Our customers value this, but of course we also value them.

Working closely with our customers, we learn exactly what the market desires in terms of new resin formulations, which is a great win-win for the industry."

The ideas factory

"One thing we are never short of…is ideas. In the polyester field alone we’re coming across new properties and benefits of our resins all the time. In fact I'd say we have 10 or 15 great ideas for the next decade.

Our Uralac® Ultra solution for low-temperature cure, powder coating onto MDF is one of those ideas. If you had said to me 10 years ago that we could apply powder coating on wood at 120 degrees c in just five minutes, I would have said 'impossible'."

"This product has been in development for a decade. I can remember two specific points when we hit big roadblocks and were given a 'no go' decision. This is what really tests you. Sometimes it can be the belief and determination of just one or two people to keep going, and I'm glad it happened in this case because we eventually overcome those roadblocks and are now have a great solution."
