We are currently using Technispray colourbond and granlyn lechler for production line uPVC and composite doors etc which use a solvent based prep wipe
I am a bit miffed about how you can have a cleaning process that requires no cleaning ,please do explain lolOctober 25, 2014 at 4:34 pm #47809
We use a proprietary Reactive Gas Technology to physically modify the molecular surface of the material, increasing it’s surface energy, and making it more polar, thus more bondable. Although the technology is primarily used on materials such as TPO, PP, PE, Nylon, PC/ABS, etc….it can also be used on PU, Acetal, and other engineered plastics. After the surface is activated, it’s ready for base coat without the need for wiping, adhesion promoter, or primer. The technology has been proven to the most stringent OEM specifications.
Although the major use of the technology is surface activation for bonding, another benefit of the technology is the material is cleaned at the same time. Perhaps in my original post, I should have used the term no washing…..no water/soap is used or needed. That being said, if you wanted, you could wash the material after treatment and prior to painting and the surface would remain activated.October 25, 2014 at 6:44 pm #47810

Have you tried your product on starboard?October 29, 2014 at 6:31 am #47827
We have not specifically tried the brand Starboard. However, after looking up the spec sheet, it looks like Starboard is a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and we have successfully treated HDPE in the past. If you are referring to the Starboard that is HDPE, than YES, there is no reason why our treatments will not work.
