Interpon Builds On Success

Akzo Nobel’s world leading architectural powder coating brand, Interpon D, has been used as part of a huge building project in Korea.

The product played a crucial role during the construction of the massive Lotte department store, which is located in Dea-Jeon City.

Galvanized steel cladding panels were powder coated by Interpon D approved applicator Chil-Chil Industry, using dark pink and wire red in an Interpon D matt finish.

Interpon D is marketed in Korea by International Paint (Korea) Ltd, a 50/50 joint venture between Akzo Nobel and local coatings company, Daihan Paint and Ink.

International Paint (Korea) Ltd celebrated its 20th anniversary recently and is now located in a new, purpose-built facility in Shiwha, having outgrown its original home in nearby Anyang City outside Seoul.
