The Valspar Corporation Completes Successful 27-Month Field Trial with Valde Edge Coverage Powder Coating Technology

The Valspar Corporation announced that its Valspar Valde(TM) Edge Coverage Powder (ECP) coating technology has delivered as promised in the real-world environment, achieving corrosion resistance for the Heavy Machinery market. In May 2014, nearly two and a half years after the first Valde ECP coated machine went into field testing, the company conducted its latest field audit of a skid steer loader. This skid steer loader was deployed for a variety of extreme uses, including asphalt grinding. Results show that the edges of the loader held up as well or better than anticipated, especially when compared to sharp edges on machines coated with traditional coatings. Valspar Valde ECP is coating designed to provide edge corrosion resistance for the Heavy Machinery market while achieving the same smooth appearance customers have come to expect, and all at the lowest possible applied cost. The company designed Valde ECP as a technology with the Heavy Machinery market as a key customer segment. With Valde ECP, the powder primer and top coat are applied in a single cure stage, eliminating the capital and operational expenses associated with a second curing oven. Valde ECP provides tough, longer-lasting edge corrosion protection than traditional products while delivering a smooth coating finish.
