Our in-depth knowledge and formulation expertise of polymeric materials enables us to offer a wide range of ready-to-use specialized powders to suit many markets and technologies.
For those customers that require their own materials be used, our multiple ISO-certified processing sites located throughout the US and EU offer advanced, confidential, custom size-reduction and related services.
As a leading supplier of Rotational Molding powders, with the broadest portfolio of decorative and performance compounds available in the marketplace, we can virtually meet any of your product processing and performance needs. We have a full range of natural, compounded colors, special effects, and high-performance grades such as kayak, conductive, and foam.
With over 50 years of experience and multiple ISO-certified processing locations, our toll grinding and blending capabilities enable us to produce specifically-sized powders from the most demanding materials to meet your performance requirements. We offer our own mechanical milling (ambient and cryogenic) and jet pulverizing technologies, along with other specialized related services, to size-reduce a wide range of thermoplastic and elastomeric materials to suit various technical needs.
Cotene® is the trade name for a new range of high quality, thermoplastic coating powders designed to provide extraordinary corrosion protection for metal parts under harsh environmental conditions. Cotene® will form a strong adhesive bond without the use of a metal primer. Cotene® is used when standard coating materials are not capable of performing the job. It is applied (using heat) directly onto prepared metal surfaces via spray or fluid bed techniques. Cotene® is designed and tested in combination with practical customer approved field testing.
These products are part of the fine range of Solvay powders distributed by A. Schulman.
