Now launched in North America - Interpon D Anodic Collection helps re-imagine the aluminum effect in architectural designs

A new collection of Interpon powder coatings is launched in North America by AkzoNobel. The range will help architects and designers imagine designs that have the stunning look of anodized aluminum but with a minimal environmental impact and superior performance.
Available in 12 matte and metallic-effect finishes, the innovative Interpon D Anodic III powder coatings comprise an extensive collection of beautiful colors that give more choice and flexibility than ‘traditional’ anodizing, with none of the potentially damaging environmental implications and cost. Importantly, the powder coating process does not require metal to be immersed in an acid bath, avoiding the need to dispose of hazardous waste and supporting a significantly more sustainable process. Surfaces are also much easier to repair should the coating be chipped or damaged during fabrication or installation.
Not simply an alternative to anodized aluminum for windows and facades, switching to an Interpon D2525 (AAMA 2604) or D3000 (AAMA 2605) Anodic III finish helps deliver superior levels of color and gloss retention and better color consistency than ‘real’ anodizing can achieve. Colors range from shiny blacks to soft silvers, steely blues to earthy bronzes, enabling architects and designers to match every mood and style and imagine designs that were not previously possible. 
Its proven resistance to weathering is supported by a 20-year warranty for AAMA 2604 and a 30-year warranty for AAMA 2605 on coating performance when applied by an Interpon D-approved applicator for a truly remarkable stand-out result.
In addition, Anodic III powder coatings are free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and are supported by Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) to show both D2525 and D3000 have been independently validated for their sustainability credentials.

Alan Alex, Regional Commercial Director for AkzoNobel Powder Coatings in North America, says that Interpon is always trying to push the boundaries of what is possible: “The Interpon D Anodic III collection has been innovated to give architects and designers all the upsides of anodized aluminum, but with none of the disadvantages, to leave a lasting legacy of which they can be proud. It is further proof of our commitment that your imagination starts with our finish, and the perfect alternative for those who want the effect of beautiful metals without it having to cost the earth.”
