Powder paint process improves corrosion resistance

KNAACK jobsite storage products feature new powder paint process for improved paint film thickness.

Crystal Lake, Ill., October 1, 2010—KNAACK jobsite storage products are now manufactured using an exclusive, new powder paint process, offering several distinct advantages and benefits as compared to its previous liquid enamel paint. The new powder paint process, which now covers the entire line of KNAACK jobsite products, offers end users improved corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, scratch resistance and paint film thickness. The following table summarizes these advantages:

Measurement powder paint improvement from enamel:
Corrosion resistance, 5X
Abrasion resistance, 2.5X
Scratch resistance, 2X
Paint Film thickness, 4X

The testing on this improvement used methods defined by ASTM International (ASTM), originally known as the American Society for Testing and Materials. The ASTM is a standards organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems and services.

“We are pleased to offer our end users improved protection for their investment in KNAACK jobsite products,” said Bill Zbylut, VP marketing of Knaack LLC. “Knaack is always looking for ways to continually enhance product performance, and our new powder paint process is another example of KNAACK leadership. We now offer an advanced solution to contractors who want and expect excellent resistance to corrosion, abrasion and scratching.”

The new KNAACK powder paint program extends to the Custom Color Paint Program announced this past March. This program offers contractors the opportunity to customize the paint finish on KNAACK jobsite products.

Knaack LLC, a division of EMERSON Professional Tools, also manufactures and markets a complete line of WEATHER GUARD truck and van equipment, including drawer units, shelving and cabinets, and racks for full size and compact pickups, vans and utility vehicles, as well as KNAACK jobsite storage equipment, including storage chests, work stations, rolling work benches and hand tool boxes.
