AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: Customers who use architectural powder coatings no longer have to make a choice between applying a product that’s either superdurable or flexible, now they can have both because of AkzoNobel’s new Interpon Structura Flex.

Interpon Structura Flex is the first and only powder range on the market to combine the weatherability of superdurable powder coatings with the mechanical performance advantages of standard durable systems.

It’s a major development for customers, because prior to this latest example of AkzoNobel’s vision on innovation, the higher the durability of a coating, the lower the flexibility. So if a piece of metal was pre-coated and then needed to be bent or formed into shape, a standard durability powder coating would often be used, because they offer higher flexibility (to prevent cracking). Now the days of making that trade-off are over.

Ten Interpon Structura Flex products are available, all in a stylish and on-trend color range. It means window and door manufacturers can now upgrade to superdurable level – without compromising on flexibility – and extend the lifetime and warranty of their finished products.

Interpon Structura Flex meets Qualicoat Class 2 weathering requirements and Qualicoat Class 1 mechanical performance requirements, the industry-wide quality label for liquid and powder coatings on aluminum for architectural applications.

“We’re proud to deliver another industry first which meets the needs of our customers. Specifiers and architects are increasingly moving towards superior durability, and because we’re always looking to innovate, we’ve developed a pioneering solution which sets a new standard in the market,” said Jean-Paul Moonen, Segment Manager for Architectural Coatings at AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business.

“Our ambition knows no limits. As a world leader in powder coatings, we will continue to seek out fresh opportunities, offer the best solutions and strive to serve our customers better than anyone,” added Daniela Vlad, Managing Director of AkzoNobel’s Powder Coatings business.
