powder coatings zero impact

Arsonsisi will participate in the digital slow meeting TST/2021 on surface treatments, organized by Poliefun — Politecnico di Milano, in the session on sustainability of resources and on low environmental impact finishing materials.

Sustainability and Circularity are issues that increasingly affect the production processes of companies.

Powder coating fits well into an eco-sustainability policy, due to the absence of solvent emissions and the almost total recovery of the fine powders waste used in processing.

Arsonsisi will participate in the digital slow meeting “TST/2021 — Trends in Surface Technology” on Circularity in the surface treatment sector, organized by the Poliefun — Politecnico di Milano association.

The digital event is divided into 6 sessions, each lasting two hours, from 15 April to 20 May, every Thursday between 10.30 and 12.00 am.

TST/2021, with its sessions (materials, systems, and analysis and process tools), aims precisely at providing an occasion for discussing and analysing the state of the art and the ways in which companies are implementing circular virtuous cycles by prioritising their environmental footprint.

On 22 April at 11.30 am Cristoforo Brendas, Powder Coatings Business Manager at Arsonsisi, will address the theme » Powder coating  with zero environmental impact” in the session dedicated to the sustainability of resources.

arsonsisi new SK range of silicone-compatible powder coatings

Arsonsisi has developed SK, the new range of coatings specifically designed to ensure better and longer lasting adhesion of materials applied over them.

For objects that require bonding of different materials, such as metals, plastic or glass, a problem often arises regarding the adhesion of sealants on powder-coated surfaces.

silicone-compatible powder coatings for architecure design and technical lighting sectors

In the case of polyurethane and silicone sealants, glues, inks or other coating products, the problem of bonding or overcoating exists in varying degrees and is not always easy to solve. This is because the coating also needs to guarantee other indispensable functional and aesthetic properties of the surface, particularly in the design and architecture, household appliance and technical lighting sectors.

arsonsisi sk silicone compatible powder coatings

To meet this need, Arsonsisi has developed a range of powder coatings recognised by the abbreviation SK in the product description. In these coatings, the balance of many components has been carefully evaluated to ensure long-lasting adhesion and the utmost versatility of the aforesaid materials.

The formulas of the SK range of silicone-compatible powder coatings are available on request for all chemical materials (epoxy, epoxy-polyester, polyester and polyurethane) and in a wide range of colours, glossy finishes and surface textures, with some limitations for particularly wrinkled or very low gloss finishes.

Nevertheless, since countless interactions may take place between the coating film and the materials to be applied over it, we always recommend requesting a sample for the user to test concerning the specific final application.

The Arsonsisi technical services department is available for any developments and for finding the best combination for the chosen coating and the specific materials with which it is to be bonded.


The timeless «Collections» colour palette of Arsonsisi powder coatings is enriched with new colours and special effects developed to free the creative spirit of architects and interior designers.

Arsonsisi focuses particularly on the study of colour as a design element and provide clients with customized creative solutions using its own technology and offering its comprehensive portfolio of special decorative effects that can be used for an infinite variety of applications.

Collections” is made of n. 57 product codes and includes epoxy, epoxy polyester, and industrial polyester powder coatings certified as Qualicoat suitable for interior and exterior use, with a wide gamut of available colours and gloss effects, as well as finishing and effects.

The range of colours are characterised by their shiny surfaces and pleasant feel, essential requirements for furnishing items and interior design.

Special care has been taken in devising the colour range, which reflects current and future trends in the world of fashion, furnishing and design.

how to choose the right UV coating

When it comes to UV curing coatings, it is important to make distinctions because various types exist that have different characteristics and performance.
So how do you choose the UV coating that best suits your needs?

UV curing coatings are becoming increasingly popular in the industrial coatings market, since they successfully meet many recent market demands, such as eco-friendliness and high productivity, at affordable prices in order to remain competitive.

UV coatings, now well-established in the wood coating and ink printing markets, have become viable alternatives also in the industrial market of metals and plastics.

The types of UV coatings currently available are:

  • 100% dry residue UV coatings
  • Solvent-based UV coatings
  • Water-based UV coatings
  • UV cross-linkable coatings with LED UV lamps

All the above UV coatings can be formulated in a «dual cure» version, i.e. hybridized with a thermal cross-linking resin, so as to facilitate UV curing coating even for three-dimensional details that are not easily heated by the rays of a UV lamp.

Once the advantages of UV coatings over traditional heat-dried coatings are understood, however, the question arises as to which type of UV coating to choose.

The table below is intended to help you consciously assess the strengths and weaknesses of the different types of UV coatings.

table comparing UV coatings

As can be seen from a brief analysis of the characteristics given, there is absolutely no type of UV coating that is better than others. Since they all have advantages and disadvantages, it is better to opt for the most suitable solution depending on the requirements of the product segment concerned.

Without going into a detailed analysis of what is shown in the table, it is however useful and interesting to note how, on the whole, the UV coatings with the most critical issues (i.e. red indicators) are water-based and solvent-based UV coatings.

Naturally, everyone, due to their own business requirements and the market, can more or less choose the type of UV coatings to be used, although sometimes some choices are, unfortunately, quite compulsory.

In the field of packaging, for example, where different plastic materials are treated and where high-quality finishes and high productivity are required, the only UV coatings currently used are solvent-based.

Arsonsisi is at the complete disposal of customers to discuss, in detail, the topics covered and evaluate together with its technicians the best technological solutions to meet their specific needs.

UV LED curing coatings

The industrial coating market is constantly searching for innovative solutions to meet the needs of high productivity and a reduction in process and management costs, with a special focus on environmental sustainability.

For this purpose, at its R&D laboratories in Berlingo, Arsonsisi has recently developed a new line of coatings for UV LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lamp curing.

Coatings for UV LED lamps are 100% dry residue, i.e. they do not contain volatile organic compounds, water or solvents, whereas crosslinking using UV LED lamp curing technology allows significant energy savings to be achieved.

A UV LED lamp can also be combined, on the coating line, with a traditional Hg UV lamp — with mercury vapours — using “dual cure” hybrid UV coatings.

Each UV LED lamp emits UV rays in the UV-A/UV-V area, using the emission of single LED diodes mounted in arrays.

UV LED lamps are monochromatic lamps (365nm, 385nm, 395nm and 405nm) with very low consumption, unlike traditional lamps, which emit a spectrum with different wavelengths.

UV LED technology offers many advantages over the use of traditional Hg UV lamps. For example, UV LED lamps:

— do not emit ozone

— are free from mercury and hazardous substances

— do not emit UV-B and UV-C rays

— have low heat emission

— are equipped with instant on/off switching

— have adjustable power from 0-100%

— have a partial irradiance width

— have very small dimensions that allow them to be easily inserted in production machinery

— guarantee the option of placing several lamps side by side, obtaining continuous irradiation

— crosslink coatings instantly

— last about 10 times longer.

UV LED lamps are used with excellent results for crosslinking inks, coatings and adhesives.

uv led curing coatings

The new UV LED lamp coatings by Arsonsisi are ideal for coating metal and plastic materials. They are widely used mainly in cosmetic packaging, and in components produced in large batches, such as bottle caps.
