Objective

Our company, PULVERIT, is specialized in the developing, manufacturing and sale of thermosetting powder coating since 1973. Our extensive experience and constantly search for innovative products and new applications has enable us to be leaders in the powder coating sector in Italy. To sustain our growth we have opened over the last decade production sites in Poland (2000) and Brazil (2010), and commercial sites in Germany (2007) and Spain (2009) representing nowadays our sales outside Italy 45% of our total global business. Our main product lines comprise epoxy, epoxy-polyester, polyester and polyurethane powder coatings for general metal finishing, architectural applications, household appliances and industrial vehicles.
Worldwide demand for thermosetting powder coatings has increased over the last few decades based on their well-known characteristics such as excellent durability and finish, easy application and low environmental impact. The most important thermosetting resins in the powder coating market are epoxies and polyester, which cure between 180º and 200ºC depending on the combination and the cross linker used. Epoxies are preferred for their overall physical properties, while polyesters exhibit better outdoor weathering properties.
