Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our frequently asked questions below and if you need further help head over to our Contact Us page.

Can you apply the polymer directly to metal or steel?

YES, it was engineered for this purpose, without a primer, you can apply directly to steel, ALU, and cast iron with no issue. However, it is recommended to blast these areas clean of any old debris, or old coatings prior to a blast standard Nace 2, SP10 or SA2.5 white metal.

Can it be applied in cold weather?

YES, since you are heating up the area you are coating specifically, the ambient or cold weather does not affect the coating. Even humidity is not a factor.

What thickness can be achieved?

The minimal thickness is 6 MIL. but we can build up to 25 MIL. Depending on the application thickness can vary. Usually the customers specifies minimum thickness required by the project.

Is the polymer repairable?

The polymer is repairable by simply re-heating the section that is damaged and putting on a new coat. It is very easy to use.

What is the cure time?

Since this is a thermal powder and cures with heat, it is instant. Once the powder is melted and cooled to the touch, it is cured. Cooling the polymer can be done with air, or water quench.

Are the polymers UV stable?

Yes, all our powder colors are UV stable.

What colors are available?

Check out our PolySteel/Con-GFS Pro17 Standard Color Chart or our PolyAqua Color Chart!  Custom colors can be ordered at min. of 20.000 LBS.

What is the longevity of the polymer?

In most standard applications, 10 – 15 years.
