AkzoNobel is showcasing its Interpon powder coatings on the newly inaugurated Shard tower in London, a new development in the London Bridge quarter that is now the tallest building in Western Europe.
AkzoNobel says the new building has coating protection from eight different Interpon products applied by approved applicators Josef Gartner and Höfer and SAS International (UK).
Interpon D1036 and Interpon 810 coatings are protecting and decorating the interior ceiling panels, while products from the Interpon D2525 range offer superior protection to the exterior aluminium structure.
“We are very proud that our coatings have been chosen for this prestigious project,” says Russell Deane, Global Architectural Marketing Manager AkzoNobel Powder Coatings. “The Shard tower is already an iconic structure in the London skyline so expectations for product performance were high. We are delighted that our products stood out as the coating of choice on this project.”
Interpon D is a range of sustainable powder coatings developed specifically for the architectural and construction industry. The Interpon D range has been used on a wide range of iconic, world-class structures from sports stadiums to museums, apartment buildings, hotels and offices.
The Shard combines office space, luxurious apartments, outstanding restaurants and the prestigious Shangri-LA hotel, towering at 310 meters. We are pleased to add the Shard to our world-wide track record.




  • Understanding Infrared Curing

    Infrared cure is gaining increased attention from coaters as a result of shorter cure cycles and the possibility of smaller floor space requirements when compared to convection oven curing. 

  • The Powder Coating Process

    Powder coating is one of the most durable finishes that can be applied to industrial manufactured products, and offers excellent corrosion protection and is very safe because of its lack of volatile organic compounds.

  • Masking for Surface Finishing

    Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
