Metal & Aluminum
Lott-Lacke develop customized, high-quality radiation-curing coatings for scaled steel pipes for oil and gas production (pipelines) or also for aluminum coils.
Even on difficult surfaces, we bring our coating systems to adhere!
The most challenging demands such as extreme weather resistance, corrosion resistance, high scratch resistance etc. can be satisfied with our lacquers.
An internationally renowned private brand of Lott-Lacke GmbH for these applications are our Tube Shield® series systems.
Our lacquer systems for metal & aluminum:
As your innovative partner we develop customized, radiation-curing lacquer systems. Depending on individual requirements and plant conditions following radiation-curing systems are possible:
100% UV LACQUERS
Ideal coating system where VOC * must be kept as small as possible. Ecologically and economically efficient. Application mainly suitable for rolling, but also suitable for spraying depending on the formulation.
* VOCs are volatile organic compounds (volatile organic compounds)
H2O UV LACQUERS
Aqueous UV lacquers are excellent for 3D thermoformable applications, as well as coatings where haptics or subsequent embossing plays a major role. Due to the final UV cross-linking the resistance is considerably better than with conventional water-based lacquer systems. Application by rolling or spraying.
SOLVENT-BASED UV LACQUERS
Thanks to the adjustment of viscosity by solvents it is even possible to create ‘monomer-free’ formulations. Solvent-based UV systems meet the highest demands on chemicals, scratching and weathering resistance. Application mainly by spraying, but also possible by rolling.
UV PRINTING INKS
Can be applied in various processes. Application by flexographic or screen printing is common, but also by spraying for special applications. We develop our UV printing inks usually based on 100 % UV systems. In terms of resistance UV printing inks are far superior to the conventional colours based on water or solvents.
Excimer (curing) technology enables to achieve extremely matt surfaces with 100 % UV lacquer systems. It allows to almost completely renounce the usual use of silica for the matting. A level of scratch, chemicals and stain resistance can be reached that cannot be realized with conventional 100 % UV matt lacquers. Generally applied by rolling.
Our LED lacquers can all be cured without the use of nitrogen. Especially where cargo needs to be lacquered or subsequently cured by clocking, the LED technology compared to the UV technology has great advantages as LED lamps are better suited for frequent switching on and off than conventional UV lamps. Application by rolling or spraying.
Where high web speeds, the absence of photoinitiators or very thick lacquer coats make up the requirements, EB lacquer systems are the first choice. Like most systems that are cured under a nitrogen atmosphere, EB lacquers are also highly chemical and scratch resistant. Especially the formulation possibility without photoinitiators makes this system ideal for applications with indirect food contact. Application as for 100 % UV – lacquers by rolling or spraying.
All coating systems can also be developed as dual cure versions!
