Thermoplastic Polyamide-11 powder coatings serve many industries – such as water handling, automotive, and appliances. This utility is based on the ability to simultaneously provide exceptional resistance to: corrosion, impact/abrasion, and numerous chemicals. Typically application is by traditional methods – electrostatic spray or fluidized bed dipping. The present work demonstrates for the first time that the flame spray method can produce Polyamide- 11 powder coatings very close in performance to those produced by traditional methods. The keys are proper substrate pre-heating, and flame conditions that minimize polymer degradation. Coatings performance, impact resistance, and molecular weight data are presented.
