The debut of the Fuxing underlines China’s status as the world leader in high-speed train technology. Adopting a more elegant look and feel and smooth body design, the new model has also been designed to be more passenger-friendly.
AkzoNobel has been working with China’s high-speed train manufacturers since 2005 and the company’s products are widely used across the country’s urban transport network. Past projects include coating eight metro lines in Shanghai and various other major cities.
“As a market-leading supplier of coatings to the entire industry, we pride ourselves on meeting customer needs and requirements, no matter how challenging,” added Kevin Liu. “We are dedicated to supporting innovative transport solutions that make people’s lives more liveable and inspiring.”
The special golden metallic coating supplied by AkzoNobel represents a first for China, as previous high-speed train models featured more neutral colors. The new product will ensure that the Fuxing is kept in perfect condition in all weathers – and at all speeds.
