Innovative Thermoplastic Polyolefin Paint Process 2001-01-0360

The desire to increase production and reduce cost while increasing environmental consciousness, is a constant challenge in the thermoplastic olefin (TPO) paint industry. Typically, TPO substrates are painted with an adhesion promoter for durability, and top coats for appearance. Although the adhesion promoter has an important function, the intrinsic value is not significant compared to top coats. A process and material was developed to eliminate conventional adhesion promoter spray application. By incorporating a novel adhesion promoter into the aqueous pretreatment system, many of the stresses of high production volumes, and operating costs were addressed while improving environmental awareness.
