Powder coating technologies offer a diverse set of solutions to meet the functional needs of almost every metal finishing requirement. Some examples of the products offered by Topps are listed below:
Exterior grade polyester - the most common standard coating. Polyesters are flexible, UV resistant, impact tolerant and resistant to chemicals.
Interior grade epoxy - Epoxy powders should only be used in interior applications. Epoxy coatings are typically more chemical resistant and abrasion tolerant than a standard polyester. Epoxies are not as flexible, impact resistant or UV resistant as a polyester.
Zinc-rich epoxy primer - corrosion protection similar to galvanizing. For ferrous metal finishes, an epoxy based zinc-rich primer, covered with a polyester color coat is the best corrosion preventative solution available. Similar primer coatings are available for aluminum substrates.
Temperature tolerant powders - withstands sustained temperatures up to 600o Fahrenheit. A standard polyester coating will withstand temperatures of approximately 200-250 degrees. Ceramic coatings that will tolerate higher temperatures are available.
Architectural grade powders - hybrid powders similar in performance to Kynar®. The highest quality “super durable” coating available with higher UV resistance, higher chemical resistance and a long term life expectancy than a standard polyester.
Ceramic hi-temp coatings - a specialized coating for high temperature environments. Topps offers a corrosion protection solution for exhaust systems, headers, etc. that not only provides an excellent shield against rust but enhances the heat dissipation performance of your system.
Anti-skid Coatings - a specialized grit impregnated powder for those industrial areas where sure-footed traction is essential.
Firearm Coatings - Cerakote brand ceramic firearm coatings… in lots of colors… the best protection in the market for your weapon.
Flor-polymer Coatings - Exceptional UV tolerance. Outstanding resistance to corrosive compounds, Very hard material resistant to abrasion.
