Toxicity in Some Powder Coats “Why to Switch to non-TGIC”

Tags

, , ,

Contoocook, NH –June 13, 2014

As part of their objective to provide their customers with the highest quality materials, Prototek has recently learned of a toxic chemical masquerading as a superior element providing desired characteristics in some powder coats

This chemical is known as TGIC (triglycidyl isocyanurate), and has been added to some polyester powder coats to enhance its cover and binder. TGIC’s effects, unfortunately, have also shown negative characteristics in lab tests. According to http://hse.gov.uk, TGIC has a time-weighted average (safe exposure limit) of 0.1 mg/m^3 for 8 hours.

TGIC is classified under the Chemicals Regulation 2002 as toxic, irritant, sensitizing, mutagenic, and dangerous for the environment. It poses the risk of serious damage to eyes, toxic if inhaled or swallowed, causes skin to become overly sensitive, may cause heritable genetic damage, harmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in aquatic environments, and more undesirable effects. It is for this reason that Prototek has made the decision to stop carrying TGIC powder coats.

Prototek will no longer be stocking TGIC powder coats as part of their Green Initiative, due to the harmful effects it has on its employees and the environment. Many companies aren’t aware of the toxicity of this chemical on their fabricated parts, so Prototek will begin requesting that customers’prints and CAD files that request powder coats with the following designated charactersswitch over to a non-TGIC powder coat alternative:

  • Cardinal
    Part numbers starting with a “T”
  • Dupont

Part numbers starting with a “P”

  • Sherwin Williams

Part numbers starting with a “P”

  • Tiger Drylac

Part numbers starting with “#39″ or “#49″

  • Americoats

Part numbers starting with “T”

  • Protech

Part numbers starting with “P”

  • TCI

Part numbers starting with “9”

Prototek Manufacturing Interviewed at Design2Part Show

Design2Parts are always a success, and the most recent event at Secaucus, New Jersey was no exception. There were over one hundred suppliers and manufacturers there and the exhibition stayed full and busy on April 9th and 10th. It is the largest design and contract manufacturing show in the country, after all.

Prototek Sheetmetal Fabrication was one of the precision sheet metal and CNC machining fabricators that made it to Secaucus this year. Prototek’s sales representative and programmer had this to say to any potential customers when questioned about what they do

“Prototek Manufacturing is located in Contoocook, New Hampshire. Prototek deals with customers both here is North America and over in Europe as well.

“Prototek basically specializes, like I said, in sheet metal. So these are some of the parts we have. As you can see, a lot of intricate bending, hardware. We do in-house processes such as plating, painting, powder coating and silkscreening.

“We’ve certainly had companies over in Europe itself that have actually wanted to come over into the US and build parts, have parts built, and they come looking for us obviously because of the turn around time. So it’s very important, people need their parts done rather quickly, and again, that’s what we specialize in. So if you’re looking for any quick turn, or short run production, whether it be sheet metal or CNC machining, we are the source you need to look for.

“We’re a one-stop-shop where we can do plating, painting, silkscreening, powder coating, all in-house. We are an ITAR certified, ISO certified company.

“Contact us and we’ll meet all your needs. Again, it’s all about customer requirements, and we’re there for you.”

Prototek Manufacturing Introducing Instaquote Online Quoting

Tags

, , ,

Contoocook, NH – November 12, 2013 – Prototek Global Manufacturing has seen a need for an online quoting system for budgetary purposes. We believe our customers should be allowed to quickly choose a few variables from a drop-down list on our website, and receive an instant, accurate quote, according to their part’s requirements. As the leaders in quick turn precision prototypes, that is exactly what we intend to bring you.

Our new proprietary online quoting program, InstaQuote®, will fill the void that companies have inaccurately assumed is inherent in the industry. There will be no more need to wait for a quotation, only to find you could change a design element or two and save on manufacturing time and cost. Upon visiting our InstaQuote® page for the first time, you will request an account, and an email will be sent back to you shortly with your login credentials. Once logged into your account, there will be a quick tutorial on how InstaQuote works, and then you will be able to process as many budgetary InstaQuote®s as you would like, as well as view previous quotations, place an order, or submit payment for a job.

 

Using InstaQuote® is fast and simple. Customers would select their material type and thickness from a drop-down, then how many cutouts, counter sinks, taps, and bends there are, along with a few other variables that may pertain to their job. You may also feel free to go back and change any of your options at any time. After being  satisfied with your InstaQuote®, clicking a Submit button would email both parties the end result as well as saving it to your online account.

 

Prototek’s niche has always been quick turn precision sheet metal and CNC machined parts. InstaQuote® is the only program of its kind, and we know this will become the industry standard for prototype budgetary analysis.

The Prototek team is very excited to bring to you exactly what you have been waiting for.
