Xiom Corp. Expands Coatings Line Focuses on Safety and Environment

Published on 2008-06-26. Author : SpecialChem

WEST BABYLON, N.Y. -- Xiom Corporation, developers and manufacturers of the first completely portable polymer powder coating spray system, has brought to market four new coatings for use with its system. The coatings are all environmentally friendly and designed to protect structures against the elements, thus reducing the energy and materials costs involved in replacement.

All of Xiom's coatings are environmentally friendly as they contain no VOCs. In addition, the newest coating-690--is TGIC-free. The U.S. Office of Occupational Health and Safety (OHSA) has established exposure limits for TGIC (1,3,5-Triglycidyl Isocyanurate), a chemical used to cure polyesters, but it is the only country in the word that has not banned TGIC. To avoid the possibility of the skin and respiratory conditions associated with TGIC's use, Xiom chose to develop a line of TGIC-free coatings.

Two other coatings have been designed to prolong the life of wooden structures, thereby reducing the need for lumber. A polyester coating especially designed to be used on exterior woods, XT630 is a low-temperature-melt-and-cure powder that can be used on any heat-sensitive materials. Xiom's new XT742 is an epoxy-polyester designed to be used on interior woods. No pre-heating is necessary to apply this fast, low-temperature-cure coating. XT742 is ideal for wood and other materials like cardboard and plastic that can't stand up to high temperatures.

PDF X300 is the first fluoropolymer that can be sprayed with Xiom's portable system. The coating is highly resistant to chemical corrosion. It is ideal for environments and industries in which acids and bases are present.

Xiom's coatings engineers are also at work on a retro-reflective coating capable of reflecting sunlight as well as artificial light. When applied to roofing materials, this polymer-based coating will be able to reduce the temperature of the roof, bringing about significant savings in energy. An anti-static coating and an improved polyethylene coating will also be available shortly.
