An industry-first architectural powder coating which can be cured at temperatures as low as 150?C – while still being?Qualicoat class one certified – has been launched by AkzoNobel.
Curing at temperatures 30°C lower than traditional powder coatings means that Interpon D1036 Low-E can help customers cut energy consumption by as much as 20%. It can also cure up to 25% faster than conventional powders, allowing for more products to be coated in less time.
The product’s sustainability credentials are backed up by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), an independently verified assessment of a product’s environmental impact across its whole lifespan.
“At a time when every business is looking to play its part in reducing energy and accelerating sustainability, Interpon D1036 Low-E will support our customers in reducing their carbon emissions – as well as helping us to achieve our own target of a 50% carbon reduction across the value chain by 2030,” explains Jeff Jirak, Director of the company’s Powder Coatings business.
