Our comprehensive range includes the Interpon brand and offers a sustainable option for protecting a wide variety of metal surfaces. A vast array of colors and finishes, based on the latest trend research, helps our customers make a strong statement.

You’d be amazed at some of the places you’d find our powder coatings. Landmarks including the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium in Beijing, the historic Hudson Yards development in New York, and the tallest tower in Europe, the Varso Tower in Warsaw, for example. Not to mention more unexpected locations, such as on gas pipelines running deep beneath the ground in Siberia.

But our products protect and decorate the everyday, too. We coat window and door frames, pipes, alloy wheels, car components, radiators, metal furniture, home appliances, shelves, barbecues, electric motors, batteries, valves…the list goes on.

As well as an incredible range of colors, Interpon powder coatings offer a choice of stunning finishes including gloss, matt, structured and metallic. In fact, whatever your coating requirements, we’re confident we can offer a first-class and sustainable alternative to liquid paint – supported by the outstanding levels of service you’d expect from a truly global brand.


The sustainable choice

We’re all aware of the need to make better choices to protect our world, and powder coatings have a clear advantage when it comes to sustainability.

They contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and have a small CO2 footprint. It makes them an attractive option for customers concerned with sustainability in their projects, such as architects and specifiers.

Consistency of finish, operational efficiency and price are often of greater concern to fabricators, but Power Coatings delivers on all three counts. The latest generation of our high-performance products protect architectural designs for up to 30 years and come with the performance warranties and industry certifications to match.

Finally, the ability of powder coatings to mimic and reflect the appearance of wood, metal or stone mean those precious natural resources aren’t necessary to achieve the desired effect.
