Self-cleaning properties remain, in spite of attempts to scratch or scuff it.
Self-cleaning surfaces work by being extremely repellent to water but are often rendered useless once damaged or exposed to strong substances like oil. Yet the self-cleaning properties of this new coating, made from titanium dioxide nanoparticles, work during and after immersion in problematic substances and following surface damage.

Yao developed an interest in developing the paint having become fascinated with the superhydrophobic - or water repelling - properties of plants, such as lotus and taro leaves. "I am quite interested in self-cleaning coatings in nature, such as plants," said Yao. "We put water on superhydrophobic plants, water wouldn't wet them. Instead the water will form drops and then roll off or just bounce away and leave the surface dry and clean.<more>

Hey Joe,
Why are we seeing random flat spots in a textured powder after the metal has been washed?
Aaron Kisler
Decatur, IL

What’s up Aaron,
This is a very interesting problem and one that allows me to dust off my chemistry wizard’s hat to help you understand and solve this caper. Random flat spots can occur when using a rather specific powder cure chemistry. In this case it is technically not a “textured” powder finish but a “wrinkle” finish. In the powder technical world we can create textures through a variety of means. Typically a formulator will load a product with either a dry, absorptive filler or a non-melting particle (or both) to create a texture. The filler dries up the binder to the point of restricting melt flow and thereby creating a texture. The incorporation of non-melting particles (typically PTFE-based, a Teflon®like material) causes protrusions in the powder film and hence a texture reflecting the size of the non-melting particles.

The product you’re using and experiencing trouble with probably uses neither formulating approach to achieve its textured surface. Polyester based wrinkle finishes rely on a funky cure mechanism to create the wrinkled surface. This phenomenon is based on a very specific catalyst system that keeps the melted powder film fluid until long into the curing phase. Then after a certain amount of time in the oven the coating surface kicks over and tightens against the fluid film creating the wrinkle.Now here comes the chemistry part. This catalysis system is based on an organic acid. The influence that your wash system has on the wrinkling phenomenon is due to residual alkali on the surface of the metal. Most common metal wash systems use an aqueous solution of a strong base (aka alkali) such as sodium hydroxide. This residue neutralizes the catalytic acid which essentially stymies the wrinkling mechanism. (Boy am I glad that I finished my chemistry degree.)

So what can you do to correct this problem? I suggest that you find a way to more thoroughly rinse the cleaning solution off the metal. This will eliminate the localized build-up of alkali residue that causes the interruption of the wrinkle. If you don’t want to follow this course of action you could consider switching your powder chemistry from a wrinkle finish to a more traditional texture based on filler or PTFE particles formulating technology. Thanks for the question Aaron. It’s always a pleasure to justify all those tuition payments I made long ago.


Hi Joe,
What makes one powder fluidize better than another?
Jason Smith
Denver, PA

Yo Jason,
This is an excellent question. To make a powder coating perform well many physical and chemical properties need to be aligned properly. Fluidization performance is one of the critical physical properties needed to successfully apply a powder coating. For you newbies, fluidization involves incorporating a volume of air into a quantity of powder to prepare it to be transported from the feed hopper to the application gun. This mixture of air and particles not only helps in transporting the material but also enhances the delivery of electrostatic charge to the individual particles as they exit the spray gun

.Particle size distribution (PSD) is the primary factor that influences fluidization. Powder coatings are comprised of range of different sized particles from about 1.0 micron upwards to around 90 microns. The best fluidization occurs with the heart of this range typically 20 to 60 microns. Fines (< 10 microns) tend to agglomerate and impair fluidization. Coarse particles (> 90 microns) are difficult to fluidize because of their mass. Hence the best fluidizing powder coatings possess tight particle size distributions. This means a minimal level of fines and also a minimum of coarse particles.

 If you employ a reclaim system to capture and recycle oversprayed powder this can be a factor in fluidization. The best suited particles are preferentially deposited on the parts you coat. And as you can surmise, the fines and coarse particles populate the overspray. Reintroducing overspray into your virgin powder feed will affect fluidization. This increasing in the level of fines and coarse may require adjustments to your fluidization process.

 How do you avoid this problem? The best strategy is to use high quality powder coating from a reputable powder manufacturer. The best suppliers have well-controlled grinding processes that yield relatively narrow PSDs. Narrow PSDs deliver high first pass transfer efficiency and hence less overspray to contend with.

 A secondary factor that contributes to poor fluidization is moisture. “Wet” powder will be very difficult to fluidize and transport through a powder application system. High levels of moisture are usually due to poor storage and handling of powder coating inventory. Powder should be stored in an air conditioned environment and open bags/containers are to be avoided. In addition you should be careful to avoid introducing “cool” powder into a warmer, moister environment. The cool powder will act as a desiccant and absorb the ambient moisture. It is wise as you move powder from storage to the application area to allow it to acclimate to the ambient application environment before opening the package.Thank you for the question.

Best regards,

parts2clean 2015 (9–11 June):
Leading trade show parts2cleanon course for success: Innovative solutions and know-how for efficient cleaning of parts and surfaces
– 13thparts2cleanwith a host of new and improved products and technologies
– Bilingual forum– cleaning know-how for greater efficiency

Stuttgart/Hannover. Effective cleaning of components and surfaces is an issue for practically every manufacturer today, not least because the bar for cleanliness is constantly being raised. At the same time the pressure on costs is also rising. So manufacturers face a twofold challenge: they have to meet specifications for cleanliness with the right technology – consistently and reliably – and they have to do so at an affordable cost. “This year’s parts2cleanoffers a wider range of solutions than ever before”, explains Olaf Daebler, Director ofparts2clean at Deutsche Messe. The 13thLeading International Trade Fair for Industrial Parts and Surface Cleaning from 9 to 11 June 2015 brings together over 250 exhibitors from 14 countries to present products and services for the end-to-end process chain at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre. Their displays cover a total of 7,000 square meters of exhibition space, with a notable increase in display space booked by foreign exhibitors compared with previous years. These figuresindicate continuing growth forparts2cleanin 2015.

Innovations across all display categories
“parts2clean 2015will be the biggest and most international event in the history of this trade show”, declares Daebler. “Many exhibitors use the show to unveil their latest new products and improved solutions for the very first time to an international audience.”One example is a new dry cleaning plant for the efficient intermediate cleaning of power train components in the automotive industry. The plant operates without compressed air and consequently delivers enormous cost savings combined with higher process reliability and availability. Also making its debut at this year’sparts2cleanis an innovatives ystem that simultaneously deburrs components under high pressure and cleans them. And the first rod transducer for multi-frequency ultrasound will also be unveiled at the show. Designed for the 25 and 40 kHz frequencies commonly used for industrial parts cleaning,it provides a space-saving and cost-saving solution for installing multi-frequency ultrasound in single and multi-chamber cleaning plants.

Innovations await visitors in other areas too, such as the automation of cleaning processes prior to the fully automatic measurement of components or solutions integrated into assembly lines.Various new developments in cleaning media will also be on show, such as a salt-free multi-metal cleaner that can be delivered at high pressure, producing a completely dry and fleck-free surface. New developments and refinements in cleaning baskets and workpiece holders make it possible to reduce process times, optimize results and cut costs. Not least because they are flexible in their application and minimize the number of times parts need to be handled or repositioned – thereby cutting costs and reducing the risk of damage. New devices for the monitoring and maintenance of cleaning baths contribute to more stable processes, especially when cleaning with water-based media. This year’sparts2clean will also showcase solutions for monitoring and documenting cleanliness at the particulate level which comply with the revised VDA 19 industry standard. And new devices and systems for detecting and measuring film residues can also be seen at the show.
Bilingual Industry Forum and guided tours
The bilingualparts2cleanIndustry Forum gives visitors access to one of the most popular and sought-after sources of expert knowledge on all aspects of the industrial cleaning of parts and surfaces. With a lineup of 25 presentations (in German or English, with simultaneous translation provided), the Forum program covers different aspects of industrial cleaning technology ranging from the basics to specialized topics such as cleaning media, care and maintenance of cleaning baths, conservation, passivation, corrosion protection, quality assurance andchecking for cleanliness. Admission to the Industry Forum is free of charge for visitors toparts2clean.

This year’sparts2clean is again offering guided tours for visitors, first introduced at the last show. Theseare ideal for visitors who need to locate exhibiting firms offering solutions to very specific cleaning problems or requirements.

Surface technology at upcoming Deutsche Messe events
The next trade fairs on this theme scheduled to take place in Germany are O&S and parts2clean 2016, which run from 31 May to 2 June. The next overseas trade fairs aimed at the surface treatment industry are SurfaceTechnology INDIA, from 9 to 11 December 2015, SurfaceTreatment EURASIA, which runs from 11 to 14 February 2016, and Surface Technology NORTH AMERICA (staged in parallel withIMTS), from 12 to 17 September 2016.
