TIGER know-how for agriculture
Agriculture: an economical sector between tradition and innovation
The agricultural industry is one of the oldest sectors of the economy. Its goal: the extraction of plant and animal products from the cultivated land. This approach is called primary production - obtaining products from nature.
Today, about one-third of the earth's surface area is used for agriculture and forestry. Technological progress is also advancing in the agricultural industry. Agricultural machinery that assists with farming and harvesting is becoming increasingly functional and high-quality. TIGER Drylac® powder coatings help our customers maintain the quality and durability of their agricultural machinery for decades. Our Sales Director Helmut Lehner explains why:
Powder coating for agricultural and construction machinery
For agricultural machinery, a strong appearance with typical OEM coloration is just as important as reliable UV and corrosion protection. As the market leader with many years of experience in this field, TIGER offers first-class surface solutions for diverse heavy machinery: from tractors to combine harvesters. We produce customized powder coatings that can be individualized from the color shade to the gloss level. After all, the color is a unique selling point for our customers, and it should be immediately recognizable in the field which brand of agricultural machinery is being used.
TIGER Drylac© powder coatings are available in weather-resistant and highly weather-resistant variations. Both provide stable color brilliance, good edge coverage and reliable corrosion protection. Highly weather-resistant powder coatings also withstand extreme stresses caused by UV radiation. The result: long-lasting surfaces even with decades of use in the field.
Green & sustainable
TIGER Drylac® powder coatings for agricultural and construction machinery are ecological and environmentally friendly products that are manufactured completely without the PT910 hardener. Since our powder coatings also contain no solvents, no volatile organic compounds are released into the environment during curing. They are also very economical: that portion of the coating powder that does not end up on the workpiece to be coated during application can simply be reused. This means that almost 100% material utilization is achieved.
In addition, powder coatings from TIGER Drylac® are also available as low-temperature variants. These are more reactive and therefore require less high temperatures and less time in the oven. Here, in addition to valuable energy, some time can also be saved in the production process.
On request, our products are also available with increased abrasion and/or chemical resistance, excellent gloss and flow properties, or as thin-film powder coatings. Contact us now - we are happy to advise you!
