Back in 1991, our Powder Coatings business was chosen to supply products for a new, five-storey Patient Tower at the Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, California. Given the projected lifespan of the building, architects chose the most durable powder coating system available at the time, Interpon D2000.
Now, more than 21 years after application, the Interpon D2000 system continues to exceed all performance expectations, even in California’s tough climate. Tests at the hospital building have shown that both color change and gloss level significantly exceed the product’s 15-year guarantee. Why are we so proud? Because long-term protection is vital to high value infrastructure and California’s Mission Hospital is testament to the quality of our architectural powder coatings, which are ideal for all buildings where optimum aesthetic, technical and economic performance is essential.
Mainly applied on aluminum and galvanized steel – but suitable for use wherever attractive, durable colors are required – Interpon D2000 coatings are specially designed for the architectural and construction industry. Providing stylish protection and decoration, the system has been used on a number of high profile buildings all over the world, including Aurora Place in Sydney, Australia, and Lloyd’s Register in London, UK. Europe’s largest building, the Shard tower in the London Bridge quarter, also features products from the D2000 range.
During 2012, we boosted our Interpon D2000 Brilliance range with five new shades of bright metallic sparkle paints. The single coat product is suitable for all architectural aluminum uses, as well as garden and street furniture. The total range has also been upgraded to higher weather-resistant technology. Applications to date include Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in London and Guangzhou Taikoo Plaza in China.
