SINGAPORE (CNI)--Dainippon Ink & Chemicals (DIC) has introduced a new line of polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) powdered paints named the DIC PPS PC Series.
DIC told CNI Monday that the new PPS resin-based powdered paint is expected to be used in steel pipes and valves because of its high performance film forming function.
DIC hopes that the product will replace the fluorine and nylon based paints that are now commonly used. In Japan the annual consumption of powdered paints is 24 000 tonne/year and has been growing at an annual rate of 13-14%. The company estimated that five years from now the demand for PPS based powdered paints will be 400 000 tonne/year.
