AkzoNobel expands architectural powder coatings

Published April 5, 2011
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has expanded its product offering to the construction industry, making Interpon D available from stock in the largest ever selection of colors, gloss levels and textures.

At the forefront of the expansion are so-called “superdurable” systems, with three times the life expectancy of standard systems. The company’s Interpon D2525 superdurable brand is now available in smooth gloss in a wide range of RAL shades under the name Interpon D2525 SD, and in a new attractive texture under the name Interpon D2525 Structura.

Another important addition is a full selection of RAL shades in a standard durability semi-gloss system, under the name Interpon D1036 Satin. “Semi-gloss finishes are becoming steadily more popular, transforming the historical preferences for matt in the UK and high gloss in mainland Europe,” said Russell Deane, market manager, architectural, AkzoNobel Powder Coatings Europe West.

“When we acquired the Rohm & Haas powder coating activities of Dow last year, we said that the combination would lead to an improved offer to customers,” said Gordon MacLeman, managing director AkzoNobel Powder Coatings Europe West. “Here is the first strong evidence of what we meant. Combining Rohm & Haas’ market-leading stock range of superdurable systems and full satin offer with AkzoNobel’s new textured superdurable products provides our industry partners with a complete choice of durability, color and finish for their projects.”

Superdurable systems were introduced by AkzoNobel in 1991, at a time when the only requirement was to meet a weathering test of one-year in Florida. These systems met a much tougher three-year requirement. As powder coatings have matured as a market, and buildings coated many years ago show their age, architects have increasingly become convinced of the need for this improved performance, to ensure their monuments look good for longer.
