To prove its toughness, the product was subjected to rigorous testing using industry standard Martindale test equipment. The high gloss retention scores are proof of the coating's improved scratch resistance.
“We've listened to our customers, learned from them and delivered exactly what they want,” explains Daniela Vlad, Managing Director of AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business. “Our product innovation is all about going beyond expectations and we believe we can now provide the best possible scratch resistance solution. This way, the coated surfaces can be handled, assembled or transported with better scratch resistant protection.”
Adds Jean-Paul Moonen, the business’ Segment Manager for Architectural Coatings: “Interpon D is already recognized for its durability, now we can add a scratch resistance solution to the mix. Our architectural customers – particularly fabricators of aluminum windows and doors – told us they wanted a scratch-resistant powder coating, especially for darker colors, and that’s exactly what we’ve delivered.”
