Cromadex Extra Life powder coating systems can offer up to 16 years protection even on mild steel.

Extra Life offers peace of mind because it has been extensively benchmarked against the ISO12944: 1998* standard, which is the worldwide standard for the corrosion protection of steel structures by protective paint systems.

The Extra Life powder coating systems have an extensive track record throughout the world. Therefore, it is not just laboratory tests that prove up to 16 years protection, but practical experience as well.

Extra Life powder coating systems are suitable for most types of light industrial applications.

Externally, these include urban and industrial atmospheres, moderate sulphur dioxide pollution and coastal areas with low salinity.

Internally, the most aggressive are production rooms with high humidity and some air pollution – e.g. food processing plants, laundries, breweries and dairies. (The life expectancy will vary between various internal and external environments).
