TECHNICAL INFORMATION PAINTING

ELIX grades show excellent performance as substrate for post-processes like painting, flocking or metallizing.
Every ELIX grade has high wettability and surface energy assuring low scrap rates and high adhesion without the need of pretreatments. The high surface quality achievable with automotive ELIX grades will support getting the best appearance for your parts.

For demonstration purposes paintability tests were done at Thierry GmbH, a leading company which supplies the highest quality color standards and precision painting services to OEMs and paint companies. Eleven different for automotive representative paint systems were selected, each of them with paint coats from well known suppliers. For testing the adhesion of the different paint systems used, cross-cut tests were done according to DNI EN ISO 2409.
