Abstract

This project investigated the finish quality of automotive powder coatings in terms of appearance, adhesion and chip resistance. This work suggest that powder basecoats and colorkey primers can yield appearance qualities comparable to waterborne counterpart. The datapaq value (DPV) was found as the most important factor controlling the appearance of powder basecoats. Note: appendices for this title available here.
