The new Interpon D1036 Low-E powder coating from AkzoNobel improves efficiencies and reduces energy consumption for architectural applications.

AkzoNobel has expanded its architectural powder coating portfolio with Interpon D1036 Low-E, a new Qualicoat- certified paint that can be cured at 150° C – thus cutting energy consumption by 20%. The new powder coating is backed by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), an independently verified assessment that certifies the environmental impact of a product across its whole lifespan.

The new Interpon D1036 Low-E is available in a wide range of colours and finishes, allowing to match any creative style. It also features high levels of durability to protect colour integrity and performance. So, it is suited for architectural as well as industrial metal surfaces for both exterior and interior applications such as facades, windows, fencing, railings, office equipment and doors.

The new solution represents the commitment of AkzoNobel to collective responsibility towards a more sustainable future and sustainability throughout the value chain. As a matter of fact, it either cures at a lower temperature (150° C compared to the standard curing temperature ranging between 180° C and 200° C), cutting energy consumption, or it can cure up to 25% faster than conventional powders, allowing for more products to be coated in less time and improving the efficiency of the coating line.

“We are proud to be innovating solutions that help tackle some of the shared issues around sustainability and energy conservation that coaters, applicators and our own business faces. Our global teams continue to work closely with our customers to understand their needs and motivations and give them the products they need to build a more sustainable future together,” has stated Bob Dirks, the global manager of the Architecture segment at AkzoNobel.
