Designed to reflect maximum light back to its source, PPG ENVIROCRON™ LUM coating is a proprietary and patent-pending breakthrough technology. While liquid-based retroreflective coatings are commonly used to increase the visibility of pavement markings and street signs, this coating is the first-ever retroreflective powder coating. Using a formulation with embedded glass beads, the single-layer coating refracts light and retroreflects it directly back to a vehicle’s driver to enhance visibility. The coating delivers a non-solvent solution with high transfer efficiency, and provides exceptional scratch and mar resistance.

Charles Ross & Son Co.
ROSS Batch High-Shear Mixers equipped with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold (SLIM) Technology deliver powders in an efficient manner for quick wet-out and complete dispersion into low-viscosity liquids. A SLIM mixer assembly with Progressive Spiral Porting™ creates a powerful vacuum that draws powders directly into the high-shear zone and rapidly disperses individual solid particles into the liquid vehicle. This method of powder addition dramatically reduces the formation of lumps (fisheyes), prevents floating powders, eliminates dusting, and accelerates mixing time. It can also be used to introduce minor liquid components and create fine emulsions.

Rotary Batch Mixer

Synthetic Additive

Easy to process, highly transparent and extremely color pure, SynAdd serves to improve technical properties such as weather and moisture resistance as well as scratch resistance. At the same time, it can also be used for optical effects. The powder is suitable for use in aqueous and solvent-based systems. In lacquers, it minimizes tiny cracks on the surface, improving the technical properties of the products. Anti-stick coatings, for example, become scratch-resistant as a result. Thanks to improved surface texture, the haptics of the products also benefit.

LIGHT & EASY™ exterior masonry coatings by PPG help to alleviate the problems faced by painters having to handle heavy tins. The lightweight technology reduces the weight of the paint by up to 30% while maintaining the same coating performance and providing a significant sustainability benefit, reducing the carbon footprint by 16% over the life cycle of the paint. The latest All Seasons technology uses silicone and acrylic technology to provide additional performance benefits, including an extended painting season.

Munson Machinery Co. Inc.
Model 700-THCX-600-MSL blends abrasive materials in six to eight minutes with total uniformity and little to no shear, degradation or heat. It has a useable batch capacity of 600 cubic feet (17 m³) and achieves uniformity with equal efficiency from 100% to 15% of rated capacity, regardless of disparities in the bulk densities, particle sizes or flow characteristics of batch ingredients. Its horizontal rotating vessel contains proprietary mixing flights with replaceable wear liners made of abrasion-resistant steel that tumble, turn, cut and fold material gently, preventing degradation and imparting minimal energy to the batch.
