IFS Powder Finishing Products
At IFS Coatings, our powder coatings are high quality, thermosetting powders. As you can see below, our powder coatings come in a choice of chemistries, that give the coating certain characteristics. The choice of chemistry will depend on the intended end use, required properties (e.g., exterior durability, corrosion/chemical resistance, flexibility) and cost.
IFS powder coating products are formulated in many different chemistries including:
- Standard Polyester TGIC
- Standard Polyester TGIC free
- Super Durable TGIC
- Super Durable TGIC free

We can make these chemistries in many different powder colors - the backbone chemistry remains the same, and the color and gloss change to create the product you want in the color you need. Our color matching team is ready to make the powder coatings you need in the colors you want.
As well as these clever chemistries, we also have a range of powder primers, designed to add a protective base coat to certain substrates. IFS Purecoat is the name of our range of beautiful powder clear coats, that enable an additional level of protection to be added to various applications.
Our world class powders can also be formulated to include additional characteristics such as:
- Additional scratch and mar
- Additional corrosion prevention
How are powders different to liquid paints?
Our thermosetting powders cure (or, alternatively, crosslink) upon the application of heat to chemically change to form a three-dimensional structure that will not re-melt. They are different from thermoplastics (liquid paints are thermoplastic) as thermoplastics do not have a cure reaction and will re-melt if reheated.The thermosetting properties of powder coatings make them tough, hard, and scratch resistant. And they look great!
