“We’re proud to be the first in the industry to introduce this kind of openly available online resource,” he continues. “It will enable us to create better awareness and enable customers to really get to grips with the potential energy and carbon reductions that can be achieved with low cure powder coatings.” Jirak adds that in order to understand the full range of possible benefits for individual users, further details of customer-specific situations would be required.
To make using the tool as easy as possible, the calculator – currently only available in Europe - is supported by a detailed guide, which helps customers better understand how even making small changes in the powder coating process can have a big impact in terms of becoming more energy efficient. These include checking for leakages in compressed air systems, improving insulation and ensuring all process equipment is regularly serviced and maintained. Customers also receive expert support from Interpon’s technical service team.
“We’re fully committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products and processes while creating opportunities to make improvements across the value chain,” says Remco Maassen van den Brink, Marketing Director for the company’s Powder Coatings business. “The energy savings calculator and guide are just the latest example of how we continue to help customers make informed decisions that can help them run a more sustainable business.”
