Wild WonderColour, performance and protection for the wild at heart—that’s the inspiration behind AkzoNobel’s Wild Wonder, the Interpon Colour of the Year for 2023.

Wild Wonder is one of a palette of eight new colours influenced by nature, its shapes, structures and colours. By learning from nature architects and designers can create even more comfortable, beautiful spaces in which to live and work. 

The colours in the palette are intended to help people reflect and reconsider their relationship with earth’s natural resources, with the warm, golden tones of the harvest, and the positivity and energy that flows from the happy promise of a new season and a world sustained. 

Interpon powder coatings are designed to enable surfaces to retain their color integrity for longer, thanks to their exceptional levels of durability and performance. They are not only helping designers create a new future, but also protecting it, and making it more sustainable. Backed by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), the collection’s raw materials, manufacture and transportation have been assessed by an independent third-party for transparent sustainability credentials. And as powder coatings, the new range of colors is also free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

“Everyone needs colour.  Colours that dazzle and colours that hide, colours that stand out or blend in, in both 2D and 3D. Colors that enhance the buildings in which we work and live; the furniture on which we sit and relax; the everyday household products that integrate effortlessly and harmoniously with our everyday lives,” said Bob Dirks, global segment manager, Architecture at AkzoNobel Powder Coatings.

The new Color of the Year is part of the Futura 2022-2025 color family – a family with a proven heritage and globally renowned. Each of the shades is also available digitally in the AkzoNobel Design App and the AkzoNobel Connecting Colors App.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer

CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart.
