Interpon A’s global standardization allows customers to quickly identify products from one of six ranges—underhood/body, interior trim, exterior trim, alloy wheels, powered wheels and body shell. Within each range, products are broken down into more specific categories which detail, for example, their performance capabilities, energy requirements, color range and approved manufacturers.
“This makes our range much more transparent,” said Oscar Wezenbeek, AkzoNobel’s global automotive director. “Customers can see at a glance the benefits of individual products, which car manufacturers use them and even how we can help them improve their carbon footprint.”
One of the latest additions to the Interpon A range is a low temperature cure primer that reduces curing time by 20 degrees centigrade, allowing energy cost savings.
Equally important, according to Wezenbeek, customers can order Interpon A products to be delivered to any site in the world, and be confident that the quality will remain the same.
