Interpon Launches Corrosion Protection Warranty Systems for Steel in Australasia
Interpon Powder Coatings
Interpon Powder Coatings a global brand of AkzoNobel and the world’s leading supplier of paint and powder coatings, today officially announced the launch of the first comprehensive powder coating corrosion protection warranty systems for the Australasian market.
Interpon Steelplex™ the name given to the collective group of warranty systems, will be able to offer up to 10 years corrosion protection and 15 years color and film integrity warranty depending on the system chosen; the coating system used; the environment location of the coated parts; and the substrate to be coated.
Responding to market needs to provide highly efficient, cost competitive coating systems that use environmentally friendly technologies and provide corrosion protection warranties, has been the challenge for the powder coating industry in general – a challenge that Interpon Powder Coatings has met head on with uncompromising energy and enthusiasm. Backed by exhaustive testing in Europe and a proven track record in anti-corrosion warranties, Interpon already had the solution. The main consideration locally was to ensure that the warranty specifications translated to suit Australian conditions. Australia is well known globally for having some of the most diverse and extreme environmental conditions and Interpon is confident in our ability to not only meet but exceed the needs of our local conditions, and have supported this by offering the first corrosion protection warranty for powder coatings applications in Australasia.
To support the Steelplex™ warranty program it was vital to set a high standard in application guidelines. Interpon conduct an extensive evaluation process and only issue accreditation to applicators who meet this stringent criteria. Our foundation partners, Vertikote Corp in NSW and Coating Services Australia in Victoria can certainly attest to this. Collectively these companies have over 100 years of experience in providing coatings solutions to the powder coating industry. They have the necessary equipment, skills and expertise to fulfil the stringent application processes we have imposed and we are extremely proud to have selected both these companies as the first applicators who can offer Interpon Steelplex™ anti-corrosion warranties.
Interpon’s Australasian Business Manager, Branka Vinaj said “We are extremely excited about the opportunities we are creating for the powder coating industry with these unique corrosion protection warranty systems. We are confident our Steelplex™ warranty systems will further broaden the technology and product portfolio of powder coatings applications.”
Partner our range of high performance corrosion protection coating systems with detailed and rigorous application guidelines, applied by a National network of Steelplex™ Accredited Applicators and you have a best in class system that exceeds the highest levels of quality assurance. These are standards which Interpon customers globally have come to expect from us.
