AkzoNobel goes full throttle with new powder coating for two-wheelers

May 28, 2024


Motorcycle manufacturers can now kickstart improved cost and energy savings following the launch of Interpon A3000 from AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business.

The company’s first single layer powder coating for two-wheelers, the newly introduced product can help customers accelerate their efficiency gains, without compromising on performance or aesthetics.

Interpon A3000 is focused in particular on the key Indian market, home to well over 200 million two-wheeled vehicles. Last year alone, it’s estimated that more than 18 million two-wheelers were sold in India. The product will also be available globally.

“The new range gives motorcycle manufacturers and their suppliers the perfect combination of sustainability, durability and style for their modern designs,” explains Jeff Jirak, Director of AkzoNobel Powder Coatings. “With a single layer system, we can help reduce our customers’ costs, since application times are much shorter, which contributes to lowering their carbon footprint.”

Available in an array of colors and metallic effects, Interpon A3000 is designed to protect and enhance the body parts, wheels and trim of any two-wheeled vehicle, in line with the performance levels specified, tested and approved by OEMs. It also aims to cater for the “naked” design trend, where the engine and other parts of the motorbike (such as the body frame, fuel tank, brake levers and cylinder heads) are visible.

One of the key features of the product range is its durability. It helps prevent corrosion, combats interference from fuel, oil and other chemicals, and offers high resistance to chipping from stones and pebbles – all of which keeps vehicles looking better for longer.

A low energy version will also be available, enabling the powder to cure at a lower temperature and further reduce the energy consumed. This will play an important role in helping the company to achieve its ambition of halving carbon emissions across the value chain by 2030.
