Superhero, Superman, Supergirl, Super Durable?
Are Super Durables really the super hero of powder coatings? 

Tough, durable, strong and steadfast are all common traits associated with all manner of super heroes, but they're also commonly associated with super durable powder coatings too.
Super Durable Polyester powder coatings are actually designed to have super hero qualities - well at least when you compare them with a standard polyester powder coating!

Created to hold their color and gloss over 5 years of continuous Florida weathering testing and pass 3000 hours of salt spray and humidity testing, Super Durable Powders are certainly "Super".

With this in mind, it's easy to see why Super Durables are the obvious choice for many exterior products or applications and are even used on interior applications where there are concerns about weathering (i.e. the interior of a window frame) or a more stressful interior environment.
What's more, Super Durables are available in a huge array of colors and special effects and are extremely competitively priced.
Check out the below table that compares standard and super durable polyesters performance.

Q: What do draft beer, wine, coffee and cocktails and IFS Coatings have in common?
A: Simple. Micro Matic USA
Micro Matic, a leading global supplier of draft beer, cocktail, water, and wine dispensing systems in over 120 countries, have been helping breweries, retailers and beer lovers enjoy fresh beverages for over 50 years. Delivering reliable, high-quality and cost-effective dispensing solutions also requires hard working, durable, high quality and attractive coatings. Enter IFS.
"We work with a variety of materials, so powder coating offers a good cross section of cost, lead time, durability and reliability when compared to alternative coatings," comments Thomas Scotii, Customer Service Supervisor - Manufacturing & Design Center at Micro Matic. "We work with IFS because we have an established and reliable history with the product and the quick turnaround times available on colors and service levels are excellent.  We have an extremely fast paced business; timely access to consistent materials is key for us."
The Micro Matic dispensing products enable the beverage to be poured perfectly every time through the patented Kool-Rite™ module. Different tower shells are then manufactured to incorporate the Kool-Rite™ module inside. Using a variety of shapes, columns and sizes for the tower, the body can then be customized with a specific IFS powder color.
With the huge range of colors and effects available at IFS, Micro Matic is able to offer customized
draft towers for customers based on their exact color and design specifications. Scotti continues, "We're able to show an expansive color range, which enables our customer to achieve a distinctive personal look for their bar, brewery or wherever they use our products."
Of course choosing a sustainable coating is also very important to the winners of a 2016 Sustainable Business Award - Micro Matic USA. IFS powders boast an extremely sustainable footprint and as a company, IFS is committed to sustainable practices. It's even part of the mission statement. Micro Matic's Scotti comments "Sustainability in both longevity of a company, as well as environmental best business practices, is always at the forefront of our minds.  It is an inherent part of our business culture and we not only expect such levels of sustainability from ourselves, but our vendors as well. When looking at vendors, we are looking for leaders in the industry - leaders that are in it for the long haul. We're proud to coat our products with a sustainable powder coating we're not just talking the talk, we're walking the walk."
