Engineers and equipment manufacturers have trusted Forrest Technical Coatings for decades as a world leader in high performance powder coatings. Our latest comprehensive collection, INFERNEX®, is specially formulated to solve your exterior exposure challenges by providing a cost-efficient application that delivers on appearance and corrosion resistance with low environmental impact.
INFERNEX® powder coatings pass a full battery of performance tests to establish superior high-heat standards for ferrous and non-ferrous substrates. These products deliver reliable corrosion resistance to combat the harshest weathering conditions. Their physical properties span flat and satin gloss, smooth to textured finishes, and remarkable hardness. Count on INFERNEX® powder coatings to meet your temperature resistant needs ranging from 600° F to 1100° F (315° C – 593° C).
For optimal performance characteristics, powder coatings must be applied over properly-prepared ferrous and non-ferrous substrates.

INFERNEX® PSS-1000 powder coating was formulated to produce a smooth satin black finish to showcase designer components. This powder is specifically designed for protective applications where exterior durability is required. It applies well to ferrous and non-ferrous substrates with an outstanding film quality and tolerates temperatures up to 1000° F (537° C).
INFERNEX® PT-1000 was developed to produce a slightly textured black coating with great pre- and post-burn adhesion. This satin powder coating performs well at a continuous 800° F (426° C) and offers a balance of function and appearance. Performance testing of one hour at 1000° F resulted in very good adhesion.
Widely used successfully in Europe for many years as a muffler coating, INFERNEX® PS-800 has a beautiful satin jet black and smooth sheen with outstanding hardness. It performs at a peak temperature of 800° F (426° C) for exterior exposures.
PS-600 was engineered for salt fog resistance at a peak temperature of 600° F (315° C). For medium temperature projects, this powder has a nice smooth finish in a flat black when applied to properly prepared ferrous and non-ferrous substrates. It combines great aesthetics with corrosion resistance.
