Evonik Industries and our SI Coatings have jointly developed a water-based primer for the pretreatment of steel prior to whirl sinter coating with polyamide 12 powder. By combining the polyamide coating with the SIC primer 100011-00L, the corrosion resistance can be significantly increased. Thus, from dishwasher baskets to medical technology, a wide variety of industries and sectors can benefit from the cooperation.
The product is label-free according to the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), which means that it requires little effort in terms of occupational health and safety and is therefore easy to handle.
Since sustainability and environmental compatibility are firmly anchored in Evonik's group strategy, just as they are for SI Coatings, the newly developed water-based primer is an important step towards the future.
