CoPolymer PE Coating

Copolymer PE is a general purpose thermoplastic Powder Coating with an exhaustive list of applications. From outdoor furniture and playground equipment to bike racks and facemasks, Copolymer PE is utilized anywhere that mechanical performance, impact resistance and ultraviolet protection are desired.

Like many other coatings, Copolymer PE was the result of an accident during an investigation in 1898 by a German chemist named Hans von Pechman. After its discovery, Polyethylene wasn’t used in large-scale industrial applications until the mid-1930s when a more practical, production capable synthesis was discovered by Eric Fawcett and Reginald Gibson. Since that time, due to its cost-efficiency and dependable performance, Copolymer PE has been growing in popularity among a number of industries, such as automotive, construction and electrical.
