One of the most common applications of thermoplastic coatings, shopping trolleys can be coated with a tough thermoplastic giving them UV, chemical and impact resistance.
Thermoplastic coatings such as Plascoat PPA 571 can withstand demanding weather conditions, making them excellent protective coatings for bus shelters, waste bins, lamp posts, bike racks and children’s play equipment. The anti-graffiti properties also make thermoplastic coatings suitable for public areas where graffiti may be prevalent.
Their excellent corrosion resistance means thermoplastic coatings such as Plascoat PPA 571 provide good protection for aluminium and steel structures, increasing their longevity and reducing their need for maintenance.
Thermoplastic coatings can provide a reliable and attractive coating for all manner of signs. They can especially be beneficial for traffic and road signs, as they are reflective, increasing readability at night, and can allow business signs to remain up in all kinds of weather conditions without wearing. Aside from road signs, thermoplastic coatings can also be beneficial for road signs and markings such as lane markings and lines, as they are reflective and increase visibility at night, and withstand frequent road wear.
