"As a company that dates back nearly 400 years, we are passionate about the need to preserve the heritage of our cities," said John Wolff, Managing Director of AkzoNobel's Powder Coatings business. "We are therefore honored to be involved in the development of such an important building."
Designed by Antoni Gaudi, the Sagrada Familia attracts around three million visitors a year. The company's Interpon products will be used to protect several parts of the building, including the enclosures and the balconies of the high conic towers.
"Our involvement in this prestigious project reflects the company's desire to protect urban heritage and make cities around the world more exciting, vibrant places to live," said Jose Luis Camargo, Business Manager of AkzoNobel's Powder Coatings business in Iberia.
