SuperCoat, designed especially for window and door manufacturers competing in the replacement market, is a durable color coating system which is vacuum-applied and cured by ultraviolet light. Based on ASTM D3363-05 color surface hardness testing, the coating is 800 percent harder than competitive paint—testing to a 4H level compared to a leading waterborne paint at 2B, the supplier reports. The product is also said to be more environmentally-sensitive than paint, since it is a zero volatile organic compound (VOC) technology. Available in six colors, SuperCoat is different from competing systems and made available only to only Mikron’s partners producing PVC, composite or fiberglass window and door products. Small and mid-sized OEM partners will find that the vacuum-applied process is faster-to-market and less capital intensive than setting up typical specialty paint or coating systems, the extruder reports.
