AkzoNobel’s Interpon brand says it has created a powder coating that delivers the style and appearance of chrome plating.

Interpon Cr provides a sustainable alternative that is free from VOCs and produces no hazardous waste. With a simplified finishing process, customers can quickly and easily produce a brilliant metallic-effect finish that is less harmful to the environment, the company says.   

Perfect for metal furniture, the automotive aftermarket, components and fittings, lighting, leisure equipment, retail displays and small household appliances, the powder coating is applied in a two-step process which does not require any additional preparation steps, such as grinding and polishing. As such users are able to reduce costs compared to traditional chrome plating, Inerpon says.

Daniela Vlad, Managing Director of Powder Coatings at AkzoNobel, says the new powder coating provides the reliability and performance professionals need.

“The Interpon Cr Basecoat and Clearcoat system provides resistance to corrosion and staining, as well as the durability to protect products from all life can throw at them,” she says. “Designers can now achieve a bright metallic effect, even on the more challenging shapes and angles, and have the comfort of knowing the product they are using is better for the environment and more sustainable in every sense.”
