Specialty chemicals company Evonik recently issued a press release announcing a jointly developed water-based primer with SI Coatings, a company of the Huehoco Group, Wuppertal, Germany.

The coating, Si Coatings 100011-00L, is designed for the pretreatment of steel prior to coating in the fluidized-bed process using Vestosint polyamide 12 powder.

“Evonik has firmly anchored the idea of environmental compatibility in its corporate strategy. Therefore, for the processing of Vestosint we were looking for a partner with whom we could develop a water-based primer that is precisely matched to our polyamide powder. We found this partner in SI Coatings," said Dominic Störkle, Head of the Additive Manufacturing & Material Solutions product line at Evonik, describing the motivation for the collaboration.

Specialty chemicals company Evonik recently issued a press release announcing a jointly developed water-based primer with SI Coatings, a company of the Huehoco Group, Wuppertal, Germany.

According to Evonik, the company’s knowledge in fluidized bed coating with polyamide powder alongside SI Coatings' know-how in the field of adhesion promoters complemented one another. As a result, the two companies were able to create a  water-based primer that they say does not require any special work protection technology such as fume hoods.

The product is label-free according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals and is also reported to have a residual solvent content (VOC) of less than 2%.

The new primer Si Coatings 100011-00L with water hazard class WGK1 has a shelf life of six months when stored frost-free. It can be applied by brushing, spraying, dipping or doctoring and baked at about 300 degrees C during heating for the fluidized bed process with Vestosint.

Evonik markets the high-performance plastic polyamide 12 as a powder under the name Vestosint. The Group is a global leader in the production of polyamide 12 compounds, which are in high demand in highly attractive markets such as the automotive industry, oil and gas production, and the medical and sports sectors.

“Since we are a globally active company, we can offer the jointly developed primer to Evonik customers worldwide and also in small quantities,” said Managing Director Andreas Kunz of SI Coatings, emphasizing the advantage of the partnership.
