New IFS blogs offer top tips, application advice and a lot more
This is one for any coater, paint line manager or really anyone who works with powder coating!
We all strive for the perfect powder application, and quite often we get that. But as anyone who has worked with powders knows, there are many variables and potential issues which can arise that can make something as simple as applying powder, more challenging.

At IFS we have always had our troubleshooting advice on line as well as providing technical
service experts who can answer questions. Now we have taken it one step further and have issued a series of blogs. Each blog will cover a range of topics, from the different types of powders or pretreatment, to application issues, equipment concerns, spraying two coat systems or metallic and much much more.

With hundreds of years of application experience between them, we gathered the technical team together and picked their brains for information, issues, causes and most importantly, solutions to the challenges we face every day in a powder coating business.

One blog per week will be released on the IFS Facebook page and will be available on the IFS website in both our news section and also in the resources section, which also features FAQs and more trouble shooting advice.

Easy to look up whenever you need it, whether it's to help solve a problem, educate yourself or your team and check what you're doing is right - check out the FREE blogs today!

Excellent Epoxies
IFS epoxy powder coatings are created for applications requiring great chemical and corrosion resistance and a high quality aesthetic, but where exterior durability is not important. The IFS epoxy coatings are typically used in a wide range of applications including metal cabinets, sports and recreation equipment, furniture, hand and power tools, brass plumbing and hardware fixtures, tool boxes, wire goods, pipe coatings, rebar and automotive underbody/underhood parts.
There are plenty of great advantages to using epoxy based coatings for the right application, as these hardworking coatings offer:
  • excellent adhesion
  • excellent chemical resistance
  • excellent corrosion resistance
  • excellent flexibility
  • excellent hardness
They also come in a wide range of cure schedules, can sometimes be formulated in low temperature cure formulations and also in a full range of gloss.
As with all types of powder coating, epoxies are not suitable to every application, so those looking to use the coated product outside may want to consider a different type of powder as chalking and fade can occur with exterior exposure and they can also suffer from discoloration when exposed to heat.
IFS epoxies can also be custom formulated. Talk to your IFS representative about the excellent epoxy formulations we have available and what might work for you! C all  866.437.2864 for more information.

It's Fighting Strong - IFS raise thousands for Relay For Life

Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. The Rel
ay for Life events bring communities together to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors of all cancers, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer.

Volunteers give their time and effort because they believe it's time to take action against cancer. Of course IFS has a fabulous Relay for Life team - proudly called It's Fighting Strong.

The Cooke County Relay for Life, which is the local Relay community to our IFS Headquarters held their Relay for Life at the beginning of June. The IFS team proudly took part with members from all parts of the business (from production to the president taking part) working hard to raise money, awareness and have a lot of fun in the process. Over $6000 was raised by the IFS team so congratulations to all who take part and donated! Go IFS!
