Class A surface finishing of FRP (fibre-rein-forced plastic) components used to be impossible without manifold costly manual operations such as filing, polishing or sanding processes. In recent years, the development of PIMC [Power in-Mould Coating] technology improved efficiency dramatically. However, mould release agents still needed to be applied before the PIMC layer was sprayed into the mould. A new generation of power coatings with internal mould release properties has been developed, allowing further automation of the PIMC process.
