TruIllusion Powder Coatings

TCI illusion powder coatings with a highly reflective metallic look.

TruIllusion reflective powder coatingsIllusion is the distortion of the senses, reveling how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. This is the basis for TCI Powder Coatings' TruIllusion product line. These unique special effect products were developed to allow you to interpret or imagine almost anything. As the light reflects the different angles created in the coating, the reflection changes, and therefore the illusion is created offering a special effect appearance.

TruWrinkle powder coatingsTCI, through years of research and field testing, has developed both epoxy and polyester versions that apply extremely well, perform well, and look excellent.

Powder Coating Primers

Primers to increase corrosion resistance.

Powder coatings are extremely durable, exceptionally resistant to corrosion, and able to withstand exposure to harsh UV rays. Even so, in some circumstances a dual layer is required to achieve optimal corrosion resistance and meet specific appearance requirements. In these cases, use a primer base coat
for corrosion resistance.
