“This is just the latest example of how we are continuously innovating to meet customer needs,” continued Hans Slegtenhorst, who added that there’s more to come. “We’re also working on a single-stage version of Awlgrip HDT, which will combine a color basecoat with the topcoat in one easy-to-use product. We expect to bring this product to the market in mid-2019.”

This included coating the entire fleet of seven boats (including team AkzoNobel).
