AkzoNobel introduces sustainable powder alternative to chrome plating

Article Type: Environment and safety From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 62, Issue 1

AkzoNobel Performance Coatings has launched an innovative, bright metallic powder coating that provides a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to chrome plating.

Interpon Cr, part of AkzoNobel’s Interpon powder coatings range, combines a chrome-like finish with the proven performance of a two-coat powder coating for applications such as furniture, lighting and other interior fixtures.

The unique combination of a highly reflective base coat layer with a clear top coat also offers outstanding resistance to finger marking.

“Special effect finishes are continuing to grow in popularity and metallics are very much in demand,” explained Mark Reekie, Global Marketing Manager - General Industrial at AkzoNobel Powder Coatings:

Designers and stylists are always on the lookout for new ways to enhance the appearance of their creations and Interpon Cr was created to appeal to those looking for a bright, durable coating that gives a creative edge to coated products.

John Wolff, Managing Director of AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business, added:

We’re constantly striving to develop better and more sustainable products for our customers and Interpon Cr is the latest example of AkzoNobel’s Planet Possible approach to innovation, which is focused on creating more value from fewer resources.
