AkzoNobelAs 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.”

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.
