Initially being launched in Europe, Interpon Coarse Texture Low-E is especially good at covering small defects on metal, while also offering greater energy and production efficiency compared with similar products of this type. It's aimed in particular at industrial producers of shelves, electrical cabinets, gym equipment and office furniture.

"As the world's number one supplier of powder coatings, we're always looking to innovate and take great pride in delivering innovations to our customers," explains Mark Reekie, Global Segment Manager, General Industry, for AkzoNobel's Powder Coatings business.

"The key to this new coarse texture range is the Low-E label - known as low bake in the industry - which means it can be cured from 150-170 °C, without losing quality or the properties of the coating. So customers can reduce their energy consumption and increase productivity."

The polyester-based product is ideal for any interior or exterior application requiring a coarse textured finish. As well as giving a consistent effect in any color, it also offers excellent weather and light resistance.

The new product is available from stock throughout Europe in the top 46 most popular industrial RAL shades.
