As global demand for electric vehicles and e-mobility continues to accelerate, AkzoNobel says its powder coatings business will answer the growing needs of its customers by developing technologies to help power the industry into the future.

Manufacturers of electric vehicles and components want solutions to help protect motors, battery system and electrical storage units, and the company can now offer a dedicated powder coatings portfolio, alongside a team of technical specialists to provide expert assistance, AkzoNobel says.

“Thanks to our renowned Resicoat brand, we have more than 50 years of experience in offering tried, tested and proven performance for a wide range of electrical insulation and high-temperature solutions,” says Daniela Vlad, Director of AkzoNobel Powder Coatings. “Building on that global track record, we’re now taking our innovation even further to help power up the next generation of e-mobility through both our Resicoat and Interpon brands.”

The company’s powder coatings are already used on car bodies, interiors and alloy wheels. The emergence and rapid growth of e-mobility now presents new opportunities for the company to help batteries last longer and vehicles drive further.

Research suggests that the global electric vehicles market will be worth around $700 billion by 2026, up from $140 billion in 2019, meaning AkzoNobel can help guide the industry on its way by continuing to innovate and providing more sustainable solutions for customers, the company says.

“We want to help transform the e-mobility market through our pioneering approach and longstanding commitment to technical excellence,” says Vlad. “We have all the experience and expertise necessary to support the innovators of the next generation technologies that will be used in the world’s most advanced electric vehicles. You could say we’re driving the current to power the future.”
