Polyolefin coatings

Zocca Coatings: polyolefin coatingsPolyolefin coatings are excellent at resisting corrosion and fungal growth. They can also be used in graffiti hotspots as they are difficult to mark or damage.

Alongside this, they are considered low maintenance, low cost, and easy to apply. In short, they are one of the best options currently available for a wide array of products.

How The Polyolefin Coating Is Made

A polyolefin is simply a polymer which contains olefins. A polymer is any substance made of large molecules. It doesn’t matter if the substance is natural or artificial.

Olefins are added to the polymer. These are compounds consisting of hydrogen and carbon. They must have at least one pair of carbon atoms linked by a double bond.

The two main types of polyolefins are:

  • Polypropylene

This is good in various temperatures, has high strength and can handle fatigue well.

  • Polyethylene

This compound is especially flexible but doesn’t rip easily. It is often translucent.

Common Uses Of Polyolefin Coatings

Because these coatings are so good at resisting mould and are strong enough to handle most temperatures, they have become popular in a variety of outside applications.

This includes being used to coat fencing and playground equipment. You’ll also find polyolefin coatings on bike racks, almost any marine equipment, and even outdoor furniture.

It will protect the outside item from damage usually caused by the elements.
