CFCM Akzo Resicoat Microsite

AkzoNobel has created a new dedicated resource centre for customers of functional powder coatings to guide them through the selection process and learn how a Resicoat solution can support transformational change in scenarios where protection defines success. 

Customers can discover how new and emerging technologies including single layer, dual layer and multi-layer powder coatings can be used for projects where failure to any degree is simply not an option. They can discover how different Resicoat products can address very specific needs, such as on the inside and outside of pipelines to protect the integrity of drinking water, or to insulate electrical systems on the latest generation of electrical vehicles (EVs). 

They can also experience how combinations of coatings can be used to provide the highest levels of corrosion protection, reduce ongoing maintenance costs, and ensure the safe and efficient performance during the Engineered Design Life (EDL) of each project. 

“The microsite highlights the experience of our expert technical teams who monitor and anticipate changing needs and regulations to provide the support and advice when you need it,” said the company. 

Functional powder coatings can be used to protect against extremes of hot and cold and an excess of pressure. They protect oil, gas and petrochemical pipelines from chemicals and corrosion, and provide a smooth and sealed surface to the valves and fittings that regulate the flow of water in our modern distribution networks. They insulate the rotors and stators to keep vehicles and electronics running safely and deliver the ultimate insulation to the busbars an electric vehicle relies upon. Whether insulating small components such as capacitors and magnetic cores or providing corrosion resistance to massive structures using reinforced steel, Resicoat powder coatings perform in the most challenging conditions.

CFCM TeknaGun 400

Carlisle Fluid Technologies’ DeVilbiss TEKNA spray gun was recently featured on an episode of Detroit Muscle on Power Nation TV to bring a 1973 AMC Javelin back to life. Featuring a high finish quality and operator ergonomics, The TEKNA gun’s high transfer efficiency provides materials savings for solvent or waterbase paints.

The spray gun technology, which has been used in automotive refinishing processes for many years, is designed to spray all types of materials and comes with high efficiency or HVLP air caps that produce large spray patterns with even material distribution.

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
